Weekend Eye Candy - Charles James Evening Cape

1937 - Charles James is wandering a Paris flea market and finds a cache of Victorian silk ribbons. These ribbons are used to construct an evening mantle (a cape without sleeves). This piece became one of James' most well known and iconic garments. Photographed by Horst P. Horst for Vogue magazine 1940.
