WINTER INTO SPRING 2020 - TRENDS
For Winter transition, Cosmo & Donato are giving the traditional poncho its comeuppance. Often overlooked, the word "poncho" may conjure notions of military surplus or Sonny & Cher. We explored what it would really look like to reinvent this overlooked staple. Admittedly, we took some creative liberties by updating the square with a head opening, adding a center front opening and hood for a fashion statement that doesn't sacrifice urban practicality.
Above, Jay wears "Winter Wise Man". This hooded poncho is trimmed in vegan leather fringe, and lined with a reflective-threaded striped stretch satin. The shell is a plush brocade chenille with jacquard embroidered roses, clear sequins, and sewn-down applique embellishments of gold beading and stones. Faux leather fringe border the hemlines and hood. The reverse side is a channel-stripe textured satin, with metallic silver threading.
True to form: you'll notice an even-handed dose of ornate opulence shared across Comso & Donato's caped-ponchos.
