Its history is long, so long, that it spanned centuries and generations. The large, round, sleeveless and calf-length cloak, continues to be a valid alternative to down jackets and coats even today.
An iconic outerwear that protects from the cold with style and elegance: its timeless charm resists over the years and seasons, reinterpreted by niche brands, young designers, historic brands. No longer only in black cloth or fine silk but today made in different fabrics, colours, prints and weights.
Its origin can even be traced back to ancient Greece and then also found in Etruscan and Roman times up to Eighteenth-century Venice, when this typical garment was worn by different social classes, both by men and women.
Its fairy-tale charm, as romantic as it is mysterious, make the cloak one of the fashion cults to pull out of your wardrobe every Fall/Winter. Proposed in many women's collections, the cloak gives character to different looks, both day and night, thanks to its versatility. Timeless and bon ton, its large volume makes it the perfect garment to combine with layered outfits typical of the colder season. Any examples? Tailored suits, jackets combined with romantic shirts with bows, soft and maxi sweaters, often too voluminous to be worn with the more classic coats.
But that's not all: combine your dark cloak with flared jeans in a combo with a turtleneck in neutral tones, suede ankle boots and a sophisticated handbag in earthy colors for a result full of style and trends. And if you love skirts what do you think of a pencil skirt? The slim fit silhouette mixed with the oversized shape of the cloak will create an interesting balance of shapes.
