This breathtaking and unbelievable "Slein and Blaine" New-York designer gold lamé and black silk-velvet cape will make any woman light up a room. The metallic threaded shimmer adds a perfect amount of sparkle to this luxury treasure. I love the 3-dimensional deco embroidered scenic leaf-motif. To this embroidery, the designer adds gorgeous glass-beads and extravagant pearls. I love the dramatic large-scale genuine white fox-fur collar. Believe it or not, the cape is fully lined in matching metallic gold lamé fabric. Extravagant garments from the 1920's are difficult to find, especially in unique patterns! Evening capes from the flapper era remain a perennial favorite, perhaps because no other period combined such opulence with such youthful flair. The free-size silhouette with tiered sides embodies the flapper's "party till dawn" attitude while the luxurious fabrics whisper "wealth and status." The mark of a truly fashionable garment is that it remains stylish and timeless 90 years later, as does this sumptuous couture piece. The pictures say it all.
