Discover this versatile line of chic hooded rain capes offering year-round comfort and sophisticated style, rain or shine. Reversible, packable, rainproof, windproof and lightweight, RainCaper rain ponchos for women and men are wardrobe and travel essentials.

Perfect to wear to Kentucky Derby, Preakness & Belmont Stakes parties! Regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism, French artist Edgar Degas is identified with the subject of dance; his attachment to the ballet was matched only by his love for horses. The Longchamp racetrack drew fashionable spectators including Degas; his painting Racehorses at Longchamp depicts a scene of jockeys and their mounts milling beside the track at the end of a race. Make a fashion statement with a RainCaper from the Fine Art Collection and artfully express your equestrian style. A must have accessory for museum patrons and stylish women, the reversible rain poncho and travel cape is a wearable work of art. Sport the Racehorses at Longchamp print side out for a chic look; reverse to Black for a sophisticated neutral that goes anywhere. The reversible, fashionable hooded rain wrap offers elegant protection from rain and wind. The ultra-versatile RainCaper may be worn all year long. Rain or Shine! • Edgar Degas original oil painting Racehorses at Longchamp licensed by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. • Reverse color: Black. • Hidden double-sided magnets create "sleeves" - no more billowing in windy weather. • Reversible - 2 looks in 1; Degas Racehorses at Longchamp print reverses to Black – both sides are rainproof. • Hooded design of rain cape keeps you dry in wet weather. Rain rolls right off! • Folds up into matching 8" x 10" travel pouch with snap-on strap for your tote, car, briefcase or travel bag. • Generous hood protects from wind and rain yet is less bulky than a raincoat or jacket (which are often prohibited in museums and galleries). • One size fits most; two shell buttons for adjustable fit. • RainCaper provides complete rain coverage - all the way to the wrist! 23" shoulder to wrist. 30" neckline to back hem; 55" wide. • 100% polyester.
