Catwalktrend FW2010: Cape it!

For fall a cape is the ultimate fashion accessory. No, we’re not talking ‘bout the super heroes capes, we’re talking trendy capes in all kinds of styles.

Originating from medieval times the cape is the perfect fashion item to keep you warm and classy at the same time. On the runway any imaginable kind of cape was presented.

Fur (Celine, Chanel, Dsquared, Etro), woollen (Kenzo, Yves Saint Laurent, Antonio Marras, Missoni), water-resistant (Issey Miyake), silk (Yves Saint Laurent) and camel-colored (Carolina Herrera, Alexander Wang).

Even a lot of the coats resembled capes. They were worn, hanging over the model’s shoulders and some of them looked exactly like capes, yet had small arm wholes at the bottom.

The cape is regularly discussed as a substitute for the trench coat. And we actually think it’s the perfect alternative. By wearing a cape you are partly covered, so you can still show off the outfit you’re wearing underneath it. It’s great for wearing to a special party and you can even face the rain in it.

Fashion Institute Arnhem

The famous Fashion Institute Arnhem introduced four new talents at the Amsterdam Fashion Week. First was Lifu Hsiao with a collection inspired by the Art Nouveau. Second was Sanne Schrijver, who went for big, round and voluminous shapes. Then there was Julia Eichler with an upbeat collection inspired by African Art. Claes Iversen closed the show with great dresses but all with a little (or huge) mis-shape or mis-form. The result was stunning: how beautiful ugly can be!
