The cape, the quick-change winter coat that amuses stylists and conquers our wardrobe

Women's cape

From cloak to cape, fashion has rewritten the history of a garment that still arouses charm and mystery today, but is worn every day

Good guys, bad guys, princesses, heroines, in the world of fairy tales the cloak or cape, as it is called today, has always dictated the trend. Generally the protagonist wore it long or short, to protect himself from the cold or to embellish a look with rigor or a touch of mystery and in fact these customs updated in our modern dress code have not changed. On the other hand it is known that in life as in fashion there is always an eternal return of the same, and the overbearing return of Y2K fashion has been more than sufficient, as well as welcome, proof of this. And so now it's also the turn of the cape in its multiform variations that amuse the stylists and conquer our hearts for this winter.

Winter 2022-2023 women's cape: the perfect alternative to the down jacket or to complete an evening look

The cape has therefore come a long way and arrives today in great shape, ready to be worn on more than one occasion. It was Valentino himself who recently showed us all his elegance and his years that do not pass, who in Blanco on the Sanremo stage made him his first ambassador: his is an openly evening model, graceful, princely, who can easily apply as an accessory to a New Year's Eve look.

The art of the cape according to Max Mara: "tips look" to match it

Another of the reasons why the cape has earned a special place among the trendy and practical outerwear for winter 2022-2023 is certainly due to its practicality. In fact, open or wide sleeves leave greater freedom of movement, especially in casual models, a peculiarity that Max Mara achieves by celebrating the cape as a must-have cult this year.

In fact, the brand packages it in its iconic camel color and transforms it by leaving the sleeves and focusing on the voluminous shoulders in a practical and casual oversize garment, whose structured but dynamic texture signs the perfect sporty-chic model – complete with a wide neck that becomes a hood – to wear in the city and to play down an elegant dress to escape and leave the party like new and modern Cinderellas.
