Art to wear! Typical elements from the Art Deco era transform this extraordinary cape and hat into a real eye catcher. The brilliant NORO Silk Garden is set against a deep black background, which makes the colours sparkle like lead glas windows. Cape and hat can be an elegant companion to your Little Black Dress, but they look great casual style with blue or black jeans as well.
Enjoy the knitting! Yours Steffi
