Trend hotness rating: 9/10

This isn’t your Little Red Riding Hood variety of capes. We are talking about a range of precise, authoritative cuts, fit for a lady of the hunt and not for tepid souls.

It’s hardly a surprise that the wardrobe staple of superheroes is becoming big on the runways – it adds a sense of drama and strength for formidable, modern women.

For fearless women comes a pitch black velour cape from Saint Laurent. Adorned with a silver neck clasp, this three-quarter piece conjures up gothic chic, mixed with vampire slayer vibe – the pièce de la resistance of Hedi Slimane’s final Saint Laurent collection and perfectly captures his dark, signature punk-rock vibe.

Over at Marni, the traditional cape silhouette has been taken in a 60s Mod direction. The earthy brown riding cape covers the body down to the elbow, synching in the body for a demure, feminine shape. Match with a pair of forest green trousers for an adventurous huntress look.

And then there’s Maison Margiela. Since John Galliano took over in 2014, the brand has taken an irreverent and colourful turn. On its AW16/17 catwalks, we saw an iridescent emerald green cape paired with a matching dress. It’s elegant and full of drama – exactly what you want from a statement cape.
