Jean Louis Scherrer Paris black opera cape, vintage french dress cape, black cloack

  • $45000 CAD

A wonderful Jean Louise Scherrer black opera cape or dress cape. The material is a thicker knit which has a good draping quality about it. It has one little hole in the fabric, on the left front of the cape. It closes with a single button at the collar, on which both cords loop. The shoulders on this piece provide this seemingly simple garment with a timeless Parisien elegance. It will always stay slightly open at the front and the piece does not have arm holes.
"Jean-Louis Scherrer (19 February 1935 – 20 June 2013) was a Parisian fashion designer and couturier. Following Dior's death in 1957, Scherrer worked under Saint Laurent, and then for Louis Féraud, before launching his own fashion house in 1962 on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. By the 1980s, his work was known for its opulence and luxury, with many garments hand-beaded, embroidered and lavishly trimmed. Although he had name recognition and was known for his work, he is mainly noted for being the first couture designer to be sacked from their own-name label in 1992."
