CAPE CAPRI is a wonderful new Brisbane based label with the lovely Sarah at the helm. A lux for less range of capes and kimono's that ooze summer style. Think European glam, Greek Islands, sailing the French Riviera and Capri of course!
Made from gorgeous fabric that feels absolutely heavenly on and swishes so beautifully about, this label is one to watch.
Packing for your holiday escape means doing more with less. Versatile pieces that sashay from day to night, different ways to wear, that effortlessly transform the simple to something so much more.
Over swimwear as a very elegant cover up. Over T's and jeans and shorts! At night, layered over your classic black maxi or simple summer dress for maximum impact and to create a fresh new look. AND if that's not enough, these clever travel clothes become a fabulous scarf for in transit and beyond.
Sarah is meticulous and her attention to detail shines in through in this resortwear range. Beautiful fabric, classic colours, timeless prints, quality finish with a delicate hook and eye to subtly keep your Cape and Kimono's 'together' for a little more coverage.
So we asked her a few questions about her fabulous new label and what makes her tick, so you can decide if it's right for you.
Everyone loves a story. What’s yours Sarah? How did CAPE CAPRI come about?
"CAPE CAPRI came about from a love of travel and endless summers. I was looking for the ultimate summer travel accessory to throw on. Whether it was for walks along the beach, feeling confident poolside or even to dress up a summer night's outfit, I wanted to create a soft luxe fabric cape to ensure effortless summer style."
Why does CAPE CAPRI exist? Why is it here?
I want all of CAPE CAPRI customers to throw on a cape and feel confident and brave in the skin they are in. Every woman deserves to feel like a goddess no matter the age, size, colour or style - I am all for the Body Positive Movement! Our Capes and Kimonos with their cool, stylish and versatile properties allow our customers to transition from the pool to the bar with effortless elegance.
We all draw our inspiration from all sorts of places and people. Where do you draw yours from?
As a water baby I was inspired by the sand, the sea and all things in between. I wanted CAPE CAPRI to give the feeling you get from having the sand in your feet, the sound of the wind in the palms as you lay by the pool, or the sense of weightlessness you get diving into crystal clear water. On the other hand I am inspired by my tribe of beautiful, fearless women. I am always learning and listening to these special ladies. Their individuality recharges and inspires me. Without fail they have such a large impact on me and my life and I am so grateful for these relationships.
What do you hope for your label?
I want my label to be an inclusive label, one that does not discriminate. A label for all shapes, sizes, ages and colours. CAPE CAPRI is designed for ALL women in every stage of their lives. I hope CAPE CAPRI becomes a wardrobe staple and brand that customers love, trust and believe in.
