Description

Cape dress in French lurex.

Luxuriously cut from decadent lurex, this piece assumes the aesthetic qualities of liquid metal. Finished with a wide hem band and featuring shaped shoulders and a moulded neckline, the cape dress offers simplicity and quiet elegance through its dramatic cut and yet a sense of dashing personality through the material choice. 

Designed to flatter all bodies and offering an array of possibility, the piece can be worn open as a cape, draped over a gown, paired with the matching flared pants from the collection, or simply belted as a dress. Discreet internal ties and handmade thread loops are provided to keep the garment securely shut for modesty. To cinch in the silhouette, choose from the two included belt options - a simple self-belt with elongated ties or an elasticated variety finished with a gold-plated Art Nouveau-inspired C.H. insignia.
