Severely chic 1960’s square shouldered evening cloak. Beautifully tailored with seams on the back shoulders that indicate the arm, this means that the cloak lines are even more slimming. The slit pockets are concealed within the front seams and the facing inside generously goes back to the placement of the slit ( see photo). Everything about this evening cape shouts superb understated quality.
