In the fashion world, one proverb is always relevant: "The new is a well-forgotten old". Indeed, watching the next screenings of famous couturiers, you can see the clothes of antiquity, interpreted in a modern way. For example, a wide female coat with a cape began to appear more often on the fashion podiums. Outerwear, which has a large round collar, somewhat resembling a cloak, looks very unusual. However, such a coat with a cape has its own name.
Plunge into history
For those who do not know the name of a coat with a cape, we offer a short excursion back to the past. The familiar overcoat overcoat or cape has a deeper origin. Until the 19th century it was popular in England and other European countries. In English, a coat-cape with slots for the hands was called a crap. It was fastened, as a rule, with laces or ribbons. This name is known to many today. In Russia, it gained incredible glory in the early 19th century and was given the French name "salop". Russian women sewed products wide, long and very warm. Noble ladies could afford more expensive and refined fabrics. The sleigh of sable or velvet trim looked very luxurious and at a price he was not equal. However, the fashion for tapes in Russia very quickly passed, and such clothes became associated with poverty and poverty.
In the 20th century the salop experienced its revival thanks to the talented fashion designer Pierre Cardin. After that, many designers picked up this idea, and today women of fashion with pleasure wear such a stylish element of the wardrobe.
Modern coat with a cape
In spite of the fact that some models of a cake very strongly reminds a poncho, nevertheless, it is absolutely different products. In addition, in the first version there may be buttons, a hood, a collar and even sleeves.
Today, a coat with a cape can be very different from an old canopy. It can be like a long or short cape with slots for hands, or to resemble a classic coat, equipped with a cape (a large round collar in the form of a cape). For example, a similar model can be seen among the collections of the brand Burberry Prorsum.
And, of course, choosing the optimal length of the product, you can choose the appropriate outfit, be it trousers, jeans, a skirt or a dress.
