SAND PORTUGUESE CAPE

BEYOND FABRIC

402 EUR  (670 EUR)

The Alentejo cape is, for me, the most striking piece of Portuguese traditional clothing. The cape (80% wool, 20% polyester) is handmade, in the form of a long sleeveless coat but with two overlapping upper layers that give a distinctive visual effect. It is made of burel (a traditional Portuguese felted wool fabric) and its close weave makes it resistant to both wind and water. But BEYOND FABRIC has done more than choose a lighter colour (the sand shade is lovely) and invest in producing an icon of national style. It has maintained the manufacturing techniques and raw materials while introducing small alterations. The fur collar is sheepskin rather than fox, checked linings have been added and, most important of all, a slimmer, more fitted silhouette has been created so that, when we put the cape on, we feel not only very grand and dignified (it’s hard not to develop megalomania with a piece like this on your body) but also elegant and modern

 

Note: Délio (1.70m, 60kg) is wearing a 1.30m cape (the size of the cape is defined by its length)
