c.1974 Valentino Boutique Nubby Wool Oversized Check Cape

This striking cape is from the 1970s Valentino boutique label. The cut and drape of the wool is fabulous and it feels like a piece you should be stomping about the Moors in. The oversized check of the wool is striking and the fabric itself is lighter then you would at first think. The layers do give is some weight but it is just heavy enough to be able to hold the shape and drape perfectly but feels very comfortable on. The lightweight, soft wool is the perfect warmth for cool evenings. It is trimmed in a deep brown velvet at the neck and has a brown braided trim down the edges. I love the two layers that give it that perfect 70s moody feel. It hooks to close at the neck and then has two buttons below that with the rest of the cape open. Under the top shorter layer is a curved and more structured shoulder. It is well made and a versatile piece that can be worn endlessly. Excellent condition

Unlined with hook & eye at the neck and two buttons below that to close. Slips on.

Shoulders: no defined seams
Bust, waist & hips: open
Length: 51" from neck to longest point on the hem
