1960s Jeweled Button Teal Traina Cape

I suspect that this was made in the early sixties when Geoffrey Beene worked for this label. Traina himself was the nephew of Normal Norell and you can see that influence in this cape as well. Made of a ivory wool it is a study in shape and restraint. The shape is rounded and the very minimum in design in used with the emphasis on the cut and seaming. Thrown over any color this would offer the perfect contrast! The buttons at the front are amazing - big bold jeweled bubble buttons in a deep charcoal and black mix add the perfect hint of luxe. Your arms just slip through the slots at the front and the nside is impeccable and hand finished. Wonderful condition.
