A stole is typically narrower than a shawl, and of simpler construction than a cape; being a length of a quality material, wrapped and carried about the shoulders or arms. Lighter materials such as silk and chiffon are simply finished, that is, cut, hemmed and bound; heavier materials such as fur and brocade are often lined as well.
Apparel updates this traditional glamour
piece in two ways.
1. By introducing new and exciting fabrics that reflect the wearers taste and style and
2. By delivering a sleeker version of the garment into its men's line.
Successfully reintroducing a classic garment with contemporary appeal.
