THE CAPE GUIDE
ALL CAPES ARE UNIQUE
Like a bold red lipstick, capes effortlessly elevate any look.
We love Capes because they take us through multiple seasons and they also help us navigate unpredictable weather, layering up or down. We at Marta Scarampi believe in the idea of democratizing the use of capes, using them everyday for different purposes: layer up over workout clothes, wear it to simply feel glamorous or to transition from one season to the other!
Difference between our two bestseller styles
Every cape has its own purpose and every style has a different fit. Our two bestseller styles are the Giulia Cape and the Rachel Cape. The Giulia is our leisure, weekend cape. It's relaxed look, vintage flare and cozy wool exudes comfort. The Rachel cape instead is our sophisticated, soft and elegant style, it elevates any look and can be worn day & night.
The Combo: Cape & Blazer
Chief Designer Marta is known to love designing monochrome looks. When she created her first cape 5 years ago, she envisioned an entire look that would go with it. The idea is that you can wear a blazer of the same fabric under the cape so that it looks like an entire one outerwear piece. The beauty and great value of this combo, is that you can also use it as complete separates, granting 3 looks with 2 pieces.
An incredible solution for easy everyday cape styling.
Inverted triangle body shape
If you have large breasts or are an inverted triangle body shape, capes made with chunky yarns or stiff fabrics are not ideal as they will add volume where you don't need it. Better to choose fluid fabrics and thin yarns like our Rachel Mondrian or Deco capes.
Rectangle - shaped body
Voluminous fabrics are perfect for rectangle-shaped women and pear-shaped women, because they add volume to the upper body part. In this case we would recommend the Rachel Bansky and Gauguin Capes as the best option to choose from.
Hourglass - shaped body
If you have an hourglass shape, we would suggest you choose our cape styles that fit well around the body, in order to enhance your shapes. In this case we would recommend the Rachel Mondrian Capes or the soft Charlotte Cashmere Cape.
The Marta Scarampi capes are made to be used as an accessory: ditch the heavy handbag, all capes have inside pockets to carry your essentials.
Wear a Marta Scarampi cape and expect to be stopped by random people on the streets. It feels and looks empowering, and that's what we all need.
Perfect for every life moment
The Marta Scarampi capes are age-less and great in every phase of a woman's life. Especially comfortable during pregnancy- so easy to button up!
