One of the biggest trends in box-office success over the last 10 years has been the ever increasing presence of Superheroes. In more franchises than I can list, rival studios and comic book camps have empowered women and men that fly, bolt, and run across the universe. While capes are nothing new to the fashion world, I can't help but think the recent trend on luxury runways has been influenced by all these "super" ladies flying faster than a speeding bullet. Fall 2016 was no exception. Ferragamo and Gucci were two that owned the runway with dramatic capes. If Little Red Riding Hood had a budget - you know she'd be wrapped in one of these.
Balenciaga went for a more traditional Poncho ala the #TruckerChic look they have going on. All these looks are in stores now... but hurry - with the temps finally feeling like Fall - they are selling fast! CLICK IMAGES TO LEARN MORE.
