Breathtaking French Couture deco starburst motif sequin net-tulle capelet dating back to the mid 1920's. Evening capes from the Art-Deco era remain a perennial favorite, perhaps because no other period combined such opulence with youthful sass. The casual, free-size silhouette of the piece embodies the flapper's "party till dawn" attitude. The sensual silver to black ombre design in thousands of sparkling sequins whisper "wealth and status." It closes with a front hook and will adapt to pretty much any frame. I love the unique front cut-away and high to low waterfall length. An extremely rare and hard-to-find garment!
