This fabulous true vintage Parisian opera cape in the most classic,
sophisticated, sumptuous shade of midnight blue velvet is truly gorgeous...such an exquisite shape and incredibly elegant,
it echoes the era it came from with the look and feel of a Parisian
opera house, a masquerade ball, a forbidden love affair... a veritable piece of
wearable art and history in such excellent vintage condition!
The cape is generously shaped with a very striking and opulent stand up collar, loosely
shirred and just gorgeous. Fastened with one large and very chic, simple self fabric button
and loop ~ with the stunningly tailored yoke featuring the most beautiful vertical
folds and three very handsome rows of tubular piping...shirred in velvet and standing
out from the fabric to frame the cape ~ exquisite in detail and so tactile.
The drape is, as one would expect, effortlessly elegant and dramatic; it hangs beautifully with fabulous folds that fall in a perfect swathe of soft velvet ~ designed to be shown off, swished and flounced in! The back of the cape mirrors the front, with that stylish pleating and distinctive piping circling the yoke and of course, that continuous, divine cloak of velvet that’s so effortlessly flattering and sensual, catching the light with subtle undertones of dark teal amid the sweep and sheen of midnight blue.
Imagine yourself as the belle of the midnight ball, a baroque beauty or evoking equestrian elegance; unleash your literary passions as you sweep across the moor in a billow of blues, take a turn in a grand garden, capture a moment of Hollywood glamour or be the alluring and mysterious heroine in a Victorian melodrama.. love and cherish it, wear it wonderfully, hold your head high and swish to your heart’s content!
Excellent vintage condition.
Luxury quality fabric ~ wonderfully soft velvet in look and feel, not too heavy so it gives you the freedom to move easily ~ fully lined in a silky, shiny champagne fabric which contrasts beautifully with the dramatic dark velvet.
