Its tall collar, deceptively full silhouette, and lively color add a new note to this fall's splendor. Also ready to cut a swathe on the autumn scene ns another romantic style: the steamer cape. Pauline Trigcre brings this Ilrst cousin of the "duster" up-to-date with sophisticated styling, with highly -textured U'eed in shades of gray and black.. This designer's talented hand turns the old-time steamer cape into a smart ensemble by combining it with a skrit of solid gray tweed, a chic sweater fo black woolknlt.
