Sabrina: How to Wear - The Cape Coat -

 November. Walking through Florence at night.
Novembre. Passeggiando per Firenze di notte.
There is another major trend of the season we haven't talked about yet: 
the cape coat!
Capes have been going in and out of fashion (mostly out) for quite a long time, 
but now it's time for a huge comeback.
Beautiful versions by Chloé, Yves Saint Laurent, Celine, Alexander Wang, 
just to mention a few, walked the runways of Paris, New York, London and Milan, 
while less expensive ones conquered the High Street.

What do you think about cape coats? 
We think they're perfect for both dressing up (with heels or over-the-knee boots) 
or down (they hide everything underneath! 
how good is that when you don't have time to put real effort into your outfit?)!

C'è un altro grande trend della stagione di cui ancora non abbiamo parlato: 
il cappotto a cappa!
Per anni abbiamo visto le cappe oscillare tra in e out (principalmente out), 
ma adesso è arrivato il momento per un rientro in grande stile.
I bellissimi modelli di Chloé, Yves Saint Laurent, Celine, Alexander Wang, 
solo per menzionarne alcuni, hanno sfilato a Parigi, New York, Londra e Milano, 
mentre versioni meno costose hanno conquistato la High Street.

Cosa pensate dei cape coat? 
Noi pensiamo che siano perfetti sia per un'occasione elegante 
(con tacchi alti o stivali sopra al ginocchio), sia per situazioni più easy (infatti, una cappa nasconde tutto: una vera comodità se non si ha tempo di elaborare un vero outfit)!

Really nice sketches and I had no idea that the cape coats were coming back in style. That's good to know cause I know a few people who might be interested in that.
