A wide range of women's capes and ponchos made in Europe
Pipolaki honours women, their elegance and femininity in the women's accessories she creates for each of her collections. She pays particular attention to offering a piece that is pleasant to wear, comfortable and unique in its style. The quality and durability of each of her pieces is an essential criterion. This is why all the women's capes and ponchos are made in Europe, more precisely in France and Italy in small workshops with authentic know-how. Choosing a cape made in France or a poncho made in Italy means choosing expertise and preserving local know-how while offering yourself a high quality piece. Through the range of women's capes and ponchos, you will discover pieces made with care and in which you will love to wrap yourself up in between seasons.
The women's cape, the poncho: an excellent alternative to the coat
Halfway between a jacket and a coat, the cape and poncho are accessories that stand out for their great versatility. Covering the shoulders, the chest and the hips, they diffuse a uniform warmth over the silhouette and become a real anti-cold accessory. As soon as the cold of winter sets in, they can be layered on top of a jacket or coat to keep you warm in style. The other great advantage of the cape and poncho is that they are suitable for all body types. Just choose the right length to create a feminine and structured look. For small sizes, we will tend to opt for a shorter cape like the Gabrielle cape to cover up. For taller women, the Isabelle cape or the Elini poncho with its high collar will be ideal for showing off your style and appearance without feeling cold.
Poncho and cape: what are the differences?
It's hard to tell the difference between a woman's cape and a poncho. Their difference comes from their closure. The women's cape is a piece of fabric that is placed delicately on the shoulders without a fastening system; it is covering, elegant and flattering to the figure. It is easy to put on and take off and can be worn both inside and outside over a jacket. Unlike a poncho, the cape is draughty. Ready to follow you in all your daily activities, it often plays the role of plaid in the evening, curled up on the sofa in cocooning mode. The women's poncho is defined by a single piece of fabric, square or rectangular in shape, and is slipped over the head. Its collar is short or wrap-around; its materials are soft and warm; its shape is wrap-around. In use, it can be less practical than a women's cape because it takes longer to put on over the head. It can also muss up or electrify the hair, depending on the material. Like the cape, the women's poncho creates an elegant and feminine silhouette with a touch of nonchalance.
Virgin wool, Merino, Alpaca...natural insulating and protective materials
The women's cape and poncho collection offers a wide choice of models made from natural materials such as wool, alpaca and cashmere. The selection of yarns and materials is essential to offer you a woman's cape or poncho that keeps its promise: to warm you up from mid-season to winter and to bring you comfort in use. The virgin wool, alpaca and merino that make up the Elini poncho and the Clementina cape come from the largest Italian spinning mills. Their thermoregulatory and breathable properties allow air to circulate while wicking away moisture and maintaining body heat; these natural fibres protect the body perfectly from the cold and allow you to enjoy the outdoors to the full.
The Made in France cape: the trendy winter accessory
Each season, the range of Made in France accessories expands and is completed to offer you high quality pieces woven in France, precisely in our partner workshops in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. Valuing local know-how by offering French made women's capes is a commitment of Pipolaki. Choosing to buy Made in France means contributing to the maintenance of French production, preserving local know-how and acquiring a high quality item. Among the women's capes, you have the choice between the Gabrielle cape and the Isabelle cape 100% made in France. The first is a classic-chic cape that suits all generations of women. Its style is simple and elegant. The second one has a slightly ethnic and trendy print. On a sober look, it twists an outfit and brings a bit of fantasy skilfully mastered.
A cape, poncho and hat: the anti-cold combination
As soon as the winter gets tougher, the women's cape and poncho can be complemented with a hat or headband. They quickly become inseparable. From head to hips, you will be perfectly insulated from the weather and the cold. For a stylish cape and bonnet set, we recommend a hat with a fur pompon or a hat without pompon. The lightness of the pompom at the top of the hat or the classic-chic cut of the hat without pompom will reinforce the sober and elegant style of the cape. On the other hand, for a poncho and beanie set, emphasising the soft, comfortable, cocooning side of the poncho with a beanie with or without a tassel is an excellent combination. The enveloping shape of the cap and the generosity of the pompom finish the ensemble with harmony.
