Modern Vintage

While browsing through pinterest I came across an image of this Pelerine cape. ‘The garment is made of silk and jet, which is an excellent example of decorative bead work accessories. The detailing was considered high style in the 1880’s and 1890’s (Metropolitan Museum of Art). 

On the left, is a cape by Canadian jewelry designer Colette Harmon. This cape is made out of faux pearls and brass, which also displays the immense decorative bead work similar to the Pereline garment.
