Size: large

Condition: Excellent

Breathtaking Liberty Paris Couture wool cape dating back to the mid 1910's. Liberty was one of the first designers to embrace the Art-Nouveau movement. The fashion house saw the need to make fashions that were more stylish, but at the same time keep classic aesthetics. The detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail in this garment are comparable to what you will find in modern haute-couture. Our extravagant cape retains a regal, unstructured comfort. The beautiful lilac-purple color can definitely works for all seasons. I adorable the gorgeous multi-colored print lace trim and dramatic backside tassel. The low to high waterfall full-length reads so incredibly modern, it's almost hard to believe this show-stopper is 100 years old. The same cape, in a different color, is also housed at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This magnificent antique garment resonates powerfully today, not only because of its intrinsic beauty, but also because it is an important fashion artifact of the 1910's period.
