Description
This cape is a show-stopper of bold, graphic blocks and lines inspired by the abstract geometric paintings of Piet Mondrian, but it's way less abstract. The cape is simply a square with a front slit and rounded corners, but the three-color stitch pattern requires concentration at the outset. The resulting fabric is spectacular, and the cape has an invitingly soft, dense drape. Style with the big button at the front, or wear it as an asymmetrical wrap with one end thrown over a shoulder.
