This is tweed – but not as you know it. Timeless British herringbone and check weaves meet a contemporary miniskirt shape with slits at the front. Made from 100% pure wool, sourced from Yorkshire's historic Abraham Moon & Sons mill.
Fashion: From city glam to country chic, how to beat a rural retreat in style
Capes were really popular in the 1940's in British fashion because they were seen as bomb shelter covers. This attributes to why they were so over-sized. The overall shape of this cape is very similar, with a few marked differences. This cape isn't made out of wool, like the traditional ones. It also lacks a hod, and has a cute bow detail, which was not practical back then. -Marissa Smith
