BIG BAD WOLF AW19 - "LITTLE RED & THE WOLF" CAPE
“In the calm, deep waters of the mind, the wolf waits.”
Drawing on a disbelief of the state of the world, the current #metoo movement, power, predators & vulnerability – The BIG BAD WOLF Collection arose. A dark fantastical collection deep from the forest. Whirled in a myriad of fairytales, fear, myth & archetypes, the ravening wolf waits, extremely hungry and hunting for prey….
Deep in the forest, where the stories are held, where the darkness takes over the light, the “Little Red and the Wolf Cape” lives. The most innocent and sublime piece. Signature Gun Shy intricate patternmaking on a classic Little Red Cape silhouette. This piece is breathtaking in its beauty. Exquisite ivory fox is panelled with a deep maroon and black faux fur to create the most striking Wolf face on the front of the Cape. The piece is closed at the centre front with fur hook and eyes, has slits for the arms and a generous large medieval hood that looks beautiful up and down. The back of the Cape dips and has a subtle, yet elegant swing. Of course this piece has shoulder pads… try keep them away from a Gun Shy! In fact, this piece has x3 shoulder pads. The piece symbolises powerful innocence, a blending of the Wolf and Little Red. Here, the darkness and the light are joined together. Thus, mega shoulders is my way of symbolising that. Of course this piece has the Collection 80’s horror film printed lining on the inside in red & yellow. This is the pièce de résistance of the Collection. The “Little Red & The Wolf” Cape is surely to be a Gun Shy Collector’s item!
Details can be customised to suit. There are multiple faux fur options for this Collection which can be substituted in this piece depending on availability.
