By  | 

‘The Cape Reimagined’  an exhibition of Burberry’s limited edition made-to-order couture capes, is now on display at Burberry’s Beverly Hills flagship store until April 30, 2017.  If you’re in Los Angeles or visiting as a tourist, this is an exhibit worth seeing.  Burberry has been making exquisite capes for years, as far back as World War I by my recollection.
