Capes are always... trendy!

Capes are always chic. During f/w 2010 a lot of designers showed them and now the trend came back thanks to Alexander Wang, Valli, Burberry and Pilati which dedicated some outfit to the capes.  Alexander Wang used the cape to revision his own urban style and capes give to it a glamourous touch that sometimes is lost by a too urban aesthetic. Saint Laurent, Pilati, developed an absolutely new model maybe the chicest cape ever seen that is very very elegant. Burberry, Bailey, showed a transparent cape with black details that during rainy days would be the best choice. Azzaro added some fur to give a personal touch to the cape. Elbaz for Lanvin showed a very complex and sophisticated model  in a nice beige with a nice detail just on the neck: very easy, almost minimalistic, but with the characteristic Lanvin silhouette. Valli didn't show capes but he just use the characteristic shape of capes to "cover" the upper part of the dresses. Owens has a very unique style that allows him to mix his own metropolitan vision of the world with the chic appeal of Paris.
In conclusion capes are still one of the collect trends and I absolutely love them!
