Dominating as one of the biggest must-have accessories for winter 2010, the cape will be in stores soon. Luxury alpaca label, Magenta 8 offers a beautiful range including the pictured kimono-style, belted cape in ivory with golden silk satin lining and fine detailing. All Magenta 8 pieces are available in naturally occurring alpaca colours: black, charcoal, camel and ivory.
Considered ‘the fibre of the gods,’ alpaca is prized for its rich, lustrous and silky properties. Alpacas, the source of this luxury fibre, are inhabitants of the Andean highlands and bred exclusively for their globally coveted fleece.
Alpaca is water resistant, lighter, finer and stronger than most wool fibres and is warmer than even cashmere. Alpaca does not pill or loose shape, making eac and every piece of Magenta 8’s an investment that will last for years. It is considered a specialist fibre and does not contain lanolin, making it perfect for sensitive skin.
The Magenta 8 collection includes handmade tailored coats, hooded capes, tuxedo jackets and cropped boleros exuding femininity, warmth, luxury and elegance.
“Moving into the new season I wanted to create a special piece that is wearable for women of all shapes and sizes with a feminine, chic edge. I think Magenta 8 has achieved this with our belted cape.
