Hooded European Raincoat
We know Perrault’s story…
Little girl wanders through the forest in a red cape and big hood. She naively tells the wolf where she’s going, and upon arriving, can’t tell the difference between the wolf and her grandmother.
She gets eaten.
There was another girl who was smart enough not to walk in the forest alone. She didn’t tell strange monsters where she was going and even if she did, she wasn’t fooled by terrible disguises. She was Parisian and liked going out in the rain when everyone else stayed inside.
She wore black.
The wolves did not dare.
