Appliquéd beaded evening cape

#7536         $175

Appliquéd, beaded evening cape, 1960s

Modern fashion was born in Northern Italy in the mid 14th century. Since that time, the cape has cycled in and out of the high-style fashion focus. In the 1960s, they were featured in outerwear; beach coverups; and eveningwear. Our beaded cape is an inspired example of embellished design.

Totally covered with black faceted sequins, the stylish cape showcases lifelike three-dimensional flowers. The ingenious design features free standing black organza petals with centers of black beads.

On the stand-up collar, the faceted black novelty beads are outlined with black seed beads. The bottom edge of the cape is bordered with a row of black organza bows.

The cape is lined with black silk and closes in front with concealed hooks.

The condition is excellent and wearable.

It measures: 16" neckline circumference and 20" center-front length from neckline to hem.
