Today’s Coveted Working Look: Alexander McQueen Heavy Felt Cape with Velvet

by Anne Dreshfield | September 15th, 2014   

If New York Fashion Week doesn’t have you excited about avant-garde fashion for the upcoming seasons, I’m not sure what will! One of my favorite all-time coveted working look designers is Alexander McQueen – his incredible vision leaves an indelible mark. With the upcoming change of seasons and the number of capes I’ve seen on the runway since New York Fashion Week, you can bet I turned to McQueen to find a luxe version of fall’s outerwear trend.

Made completely of luxurious wool, this cape will be sure to keep you warm as the temperature drops and the wind picks up. I love the feminine, high-quality details of this cape: the velvet yoke and hood, with a satin ribbon string, add just the right amount of shine. Made entirely in Italy, and casting a gorgeous, classic cape silhouette, this cape is the epitome of luxury and sumptuous style.

For some reason, capes have captivated me for fall. I love their simple ease, their cozy warmth, and, quite simply, how glamorous they are. In a sea of puffer jackets and regular wool peacoats, Alexander McQueen’s Heavy Felt Cape with Velvet will make you stand out in a sea of commuters with ease. Let’s be honest: would you rather rush through crowded city streets on a cold morning bundled in a swishy puffer, or glide through with a cape that billows in just the right way, flashing your gorgeous slacks and silk shirt underneath?

I know my answer!
