The Cape

Since the early 90s I have dreamt of the perfect cape. A cape befitting a powerful and fashionable witch. I wanted to be wrapped in the lush folds of a warm and protective veil while collecting herbs and wild flowers deep in the woods behind my family home.  I wanted a cloaking shield that I could hide in while I was on one of my meditation retreats atop boulders in the hills below the high tension lines. I simply wanted a substantial cape that didn’t look like a cheap Halloween costume… Yet, every cape on the market at that time, (and sadly still to this day)  are made out of some thin inferior synthetic-velvet, (or worse, crush velvet material).

A knowledgeable witch I was. Able to manifest even my most seemingly unobtainable desires, but able to materialize the cape of my dreams I was not. I was not yet the amazingly talented and resourceful clothing designer that I am today… So, fast forward to the present; behold, “The Cape” made of fine Italian wool and expertise tailoring. The epaulet style toggle closure at the neck, oversize hood, and on-seam armholes make this a stylish and still functional cape befitting any urban, suburban, or rural setting.

Now, I walk the cold hard streets of an austere urban jungle cloaked in this magnificent shroud rather than the rolling hills and alluring woods of my childhood memories. I no longer have a private garden and I buy most of my herbs form “Enchantments” in the LES of Manhattan (but it’s cool). I live near a park (once sacred Native American ground) and I can meditate on my secluded rooftop. I am after all, the Warlock in The City aka “Warlock and The City.”
