A gorgeous French metallic hydrangea floral print lamé & magenta silk-velvet evening cape 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 cut of the cape embodies the flapper's "party till dawn" attitude. The sensual silk-velvet, sparkling metallic lamé and luxurious heavily-ruched collar all whisper "wealth and status." The hydrangea floral print represents gratitude, grace and beauty. It also radiates abundance because of the lavish number of flowers and the generous round shape. What a beautiful sentiment for this garment. It closes with a lavish front sash and the cut will adapt to pretty much any frame. An extremely rare and hard-to-find garment in this kind of color combination and style.
