Now, celebrities are catching onto the trend, too, though it took a supermodel to test-drive it properly. Kate Moss stepped out in London wearing a black leather cape, unbuttoned to reveal a chic white blouse underneath for that effortless model off-duty look courtesy of Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello. It had just the right amount of flair with discreet cargo pockets for a slight utilitarian feel. She paired it with streamlined black trousers and accessories, including black moto boots, a sleek black clutch and a sparkly bracelet.
While a rock'n'roll cape for going out may seem an unlikely choice, consider Moss’s take the ultimate inspiration for stepping into spring: because why wait until autumn to try something new?
