KING OF CAPE: He is the King of Cape among the couturiers, so no wonder French singer Matt Pokora tapped Stéphane Rolland to design the costumes for his musical “Robin des Bois” (or Robin Hood, in English) set to premier in September.

“The costumes have a touch of Assassin’s Creed,” said Pokora, referring to the video game set in the Middle Ages.

Seated front row at Rolland’s show on Tuesday, Pokora said: “Rehearsals start next week, so no vacation for me. But we are working with great people, including Michel Laprise, who directed the MDNA tour for Madonna. So it’s going to be a great show.”
