Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Hooded Beach Cape


Fab 1940s chenille beach cape. Classic Deco styling with rainbow stripe accents. The cape has been over dyed sky blue which has rendered the stripes soft 'off' tones and made the whole effect very subtle and beautiful. Best of all there is a hood! Perfect for a windy day at the beach. Original neck ties present. The fabric is super soft and cottony. You could curl up in this cape and have the perfect beach nap. The colors are so much more beautiful in person, the camera has flattened them and made them seem a little murky, they are pure and vibrant in person. Deco perfection!

One size fits most. Length 41"

Label: High Grade Candlewicks and Chenilles

Material: Cotton

This 1940s beach cape is in very good condition with no damage or staining. The over dye is a bit uneven in places and there is a little white visible on the ties (see photo). Presents beautifully. Freshly washed, steamed and ready to wear. This 1940s beach cape is over 70 years old and truly stunning.
