Description

 Peisnoir-caPe.

The present invention relates to a bathrobe-cape of a new type usable in particular in hairdressing salons and intended to wrap as perfectly as possible the user's arms.

Protective sets of the robe-cape or gown type commonly used in hairdressing salons, cosmetology, or other generally consist of a single piece assembly whose geometric shape is such that it allows sufficient development to protect from relatively efficiently the user. The piece of fabric constituting the protective assembly fits the shoulders and closes at the neck so as to form an anterior pan and two posterior sections partially overlapping on the wearer's arms and on the posterior face to form a protective envelope. leaving the free movement of the arms and constituting the sleeve element. This type of bathrobe or blouse does not effectively protect the forearm of the wearer or the user in the case where the latter uses his arms in particular for reading or for any other activity. To overcome this problem, some bathrobes or gowns have slits made directly in the piece of fabric, said slits allowing the wrist to pass. In this embodiment, user protection remains incomplete. In addition, these bathrobes are impractical to put on, the user generally taking some time before locating the location of the slot. Obviously, there are also protective sets of the bathrobe or blouse type which are fitted with traditional sleeves and in this case allow perfect protection for the user. However, this type of bathrobe or blouse is particularly expensive.

The object of the present invention is therefore to propose a protective assembly of the robe-cape type which is easy to manufacture, having a reduced number of seams, inexpensive but nevertheless practical in terms of its installation on the user and effective at the level of protection.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a robe-cape whose shapes and color combinations can be extremely varied without requiring modification of existing production lines.

The present invention relates to this effect a robe-cape consisting of a piece of fabric which fits the shoulders and closes at the neck so as to form an anterior pan and two posterior panels partially overlapping on the arms of the wearer and on the rear face to form a protective envelope allowing the free movement of the arms and constituting the handle element, characterized in that it comprises at least one yoke disposed between the front panel and the rear panels of the piece of fabric to perfect the 'wrap, in particular between the elbow and the wrist, this yoke defining between the anterior and posterior sides a free passage for the wrist, said passage being located opposite the armpit in the vicinity of the end of the front -arms.

According to a preferred embodiment of the invention, the edges of the free passage delimited by the yoke and the front and rear panels of the piece of fabric are extended by an added sleeve extending the sleeve element of the cape.

Other characteristics and advantages of the invention will become apparent on reading the description which follows and the accompanying drawings, which description and drawings being given mainly by way of example. In these drawings
Figure 1 shows a front perspective view

classic; FIG. 5 represents a front view of a
embodiment of an attached sleeve conforming to
the invention; Figures 6 and 7 show a view
schematic of the flat face of the sleeve of FIG. 5
reported on a yoke; Figure 8 shows a
front view of an embodiment of the yoke
before fixing it on the robe-cape.

In accordance with FIG. 4, the robe-cape comprises a piece of fabric 1 of geometric shape suitable for at least partially protecting the user. This piece of fabric envelops the shoulders of the user and closes at the neck 2 while providing an opening allowing the passage of the head. This piece of fabric 1 known per se has, when it is worn, an anterior panel 3 and two posterior panels 4a and 4b which overlap the arms and the posterior face of the user so as to constitute a handle element 5 , while leaving free movement of the arms. However, as can be clearly seen in FIG. 4, the sides of the piece of fabric forming the sleeve do not allow the entire arm, and more particularly the forearm, to be covered. This is why, in accordance with FIGS. 1, , 3 and 4 (dotted representation) at least one panel 6 between the front panel 3 and the rear panel 4a, respectively 4b, of the piece of fabric 1. This panel 6, which can be of any shape, delimits between the panels anterior 3 and posterior 4a, respectively 4b, of the piece of fabric 1 a free passage 7 for the wrist. The yoke 6 fixed removably or not is arranged on the edges of the front panels 3 and rear 4a respectively 4b so that the free passage 7 thus formed is located opposite the armpit near the end of the forearm. Such an arrangement of the passage 7 left free for the insertion of the wrist is clearly different from the conventional robe-capes equipped with a slot which plays substantially the same function as the passage 7 but which is produced by means an opening in the front panel of the piece of fabric 1, the cape-robe being in this case made up of a whole in one piece. Thanks to the fact that the free passage 7 is provided by means of at least one insert 6, it is possible to obtain from a single piece of fabric 1 a large number of shapes and color combinations. Indeed, it suffices to modify the shape and / or the color of the yoke 6 to obtain a large number of models. A very low production cost is thus obtained despite a very wide range of products. In addition, as this yoke 6 fits perfectly on existing models as shown by the dotted representation of Figure 4, the existing production lines can remain unchanged. To further increase the number of possibilities offered, it is possible to mount the yoke 6 removably on the piece of fabric 1 using either snaps, or a "Velcro" strip (registered trademark), or buttons or any other appropriate means. Thus, successive uses of the same robe-cape are possible without customers being aware of it. In addition, this modularity allows for cleaner robe-capes. On the contrary, in the case of a definitive fixing of the yoke 6, the latter will preferably be sewn onto the piece of fabric 1.

To perfect the wrapping, it is possible to extend by means of an attached sleeve 9 the edges 8 of the free passage 7 delimited by the yoke 6 and the anterior 3 and posterior sides 4a, respectively 4b, of the piece of fabric 1 so as to increase the length of the handle element 5.

These sleeves 9, which can be of any shape, may for example have shapes similar to that shown in FIG. 5, namely a triangular shape when they are fixed to the piece of fabric 1. The sleeve 9 as shown in Figure 5 is fixed to the edges 8 of the free passage 7, either by means of a seam at the dotted line, or by removable fixing means identical or not to those mentioned above for fixing the yoke 6.

FIGS. 6 and 7 schematically represent the connections of the added sleeve 9 of FIG. 5 with an insert 6.

Thus, in accordance with Figures 6 and 7, the yoke 6 is fixed by seams 15 and 16 (or any other suitable means) on the piece of fabric 1. The seam 15 corresponds to the connection existing between the rear panel 4a or 4b of the piece of fabric 1 and the yoke 6, the seam 16 corresponds to the connection existing between the front panel 3 of the piece of fabric 1 and the yoke 6. The edges 17 of the yoke 6 can have any shape which will generally be similar to the general shape of the piece of fabric 1. Thus, as shown in FIG. 1, when the piece of fabric 1 is rounded at the bottom, the edge 17 is also rounded. The sleeve 9 is folded along the axis x, x shown in Figure 5 before being fixed on the yoke 6. Two of the edges of the sleeve 9 are provided with seams (19,20), the seam 19 allowing a connection between the edge 19 'of the sleeve 9 and the edge 8 of the free passage 7 formed by the yoke 6, the seam 20 allowing a connection between the edge 20' of the sleeve 9 and the edge 8 of the free passage 7 formed by the front panel 3 and the rear panel 4a, respectively 4b, of the piece of fabric 1. When the sleeve 9 is arranged in accordance with what has been specified above, it provides an opening. Indeed, the edge 22 of the sleeve 9 with or without a hem or bias remains free and allows the passage of the hand. FIGS. 6 and 7 demonstrate that by using the same mounting principle, different embodiments are obtained depending on the location of the sleeve 9 relative to the yoke 6.

It should be noted that the shape of sleeve 9 shown in Figure 5 is not limiting and any other embodiment may be suitable. Similarly, it will be noted that this sleeve 9 no longer has any interest when the yoke 6 has, for example, a shape similar to that shown in FIG. 8 where the dotted lines 15 and 16 respectively designate the seam lines or for fixing the yoke 6 to the edges of the front 3 and rear 4a, respectively 4b, of the piece of fabric 1, all the other edges of the yoke 6 being preferably bordered with a hem so as to ensure a good finish of the bathrobe. The edge 23 'provided with a seam 23 is folded so as to be placed on the line represented by a point-star alternation and is then fixed to the edge 8 of the free passage 7 formed by the front edge 3 and the rear edge 4a, 4b, respectively, of the piece of fabric 1. The edge 21 left free provides an opening allowing the wrist to pass through.

According to the embodiments, the added sleeve 9 is fixed over the entire periphery of the free passage 7 or, on the contrary, covers only part of the edges 8 of the free passage 7.

Obviously the sleeve 9 can be used to enhance the aesthetics of the product. This is why this added sleeve 9 may, for example, be of a different color, preferably contrasting, with respect to the other elements of the robe-cape, namely, the piece of fabric 1 and the yoke 6. Similarly, the insert sleeve 9 and / or yoke 6 may be biased in color, preferably contrasted with respect to the other elements of the robe-cape.

Obviously, all the embodiments mentioned above are only given by way of example and in no way constitute an exhaustive list of the possible embodiments.
