This Puffa Blanket Cape isn’t for the faint-hearted. Rather than wearing your heart on your sleeve, you’re essentially wearing your bedspread on your shoulders. Take after Rihanna and Rocky’s Met Gala 2021 red carpet look and be ever so comfy cozy with this select, distinct piece that will have people turning heads.
This is arguably one of Balenciaga’s more real-life executable numbers, with an elegant finish that doesn’t scream grandma’s quilt but rather luxe, streamlined indulgence. A cape always brings the drama – but here, you’ll be subtly infusing your look with a touch of softness that has a stark, boxy cut to underpin a harmony of proportions. The quilting is done impeccably – a linear, wide angle cut that allows the filling to not overwhelm any aspect of the garment, rather create billowy folds that cascade. A solid favorite to go over a simple, streamlined look.
We love the gray-tending-toward-black colorway – combined with a one-size fit and interior pockets, this cape is unfussy, uncomplicated, but very, very unique.
Do Balenciaga right and get the accessory of the season as summer turns into fall. There is a season, turn, turn, turn, and you can make it work, work, work.
