"The Cape" @ Phoenix Art Museum Step aside, Superman. The cape's making a comeback faster than a speeding bullet. Don't fear, Phoenix fashionables; these coverups aren't the floor-sweeping, candy-red costumery the Man of Steel's made famous. Instead, the fall 2013 trend showcased in collections from Valentino and Mulberry focuses on luxe fabrics, sleek shapes, and cultivating a cosmopolitan, ladylike look.

With an eye toward the past and a grasp on today's fashion market, Phoenix Art Museum presents "The Cape" in its Ellman Fashion Design Gallery. There you'll find a range of inspiration for this season's wardrobe, from a silk satin fuchsia Mexican bullfighter's cape and a dainty floral Dutch piece to a thick, navy number by Lanvin with a high collar and matching fedora.

See the supberb collection at 1625 North Central Avenue, through Sunday, February 9, 2014. Admission to the museum is $15 for adults. Hours Wednesday, September 18, are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Visit www.phxart.org or call 602-257-1222. -- Becky Bartkowski
