THE JOY OF DRESSING
With Sebastien Furer
THE SUNDAY CAFTAN
A universally flattering piece, the Sunday Caftan looks good on everyone, and we mean everyone. Welcome to the new frontier of genderless dressing - and what a joy it is.
Flattering across age, figure, and gender, this is a piece we reach for time and again when it comes to everyday dressing. The Sunday Caftan adds sleek stitching and a supersoft hand-feel to a classic silhouette that has passed the test of time.

SWISS-NATIVE, LOS ANGELES-BASED ARTIST AND CREATIVE CONSULTANT SEBASTIEN FURER SHARES WITH US A FEW OF HIS FAVORITE THINGS...
What are your favorite three cities and what do you like to do there?
1. London, walk through Hyde Park from Notting Hill and have tea at the Wolseley.
2. Paris, cross the Seine at night and grab a cocktail at the bar Hemingway.
3. New York, wander around the West Village, end up in Soho, and sit for a while with Walter de Maria’s Broken Kilometer.
Hotel Victoria, hidden in the mountain overlooking Lake Geneva. The hotel has been family owned and operated for four generations, not much has changed, original furniture and wall papers… feels like a living memory of the Old World.
Favorite smell(s) and why?
1.Star jasmine and lilac, smells like love.
2. Fresh cut grass, a sense that all is well in the world.
3. Palo santo - ancient and sacred.
4. Eau de Cologne Helmut Lang, wore it for over ten years until it was discontinued and recently found a re-issued limited edition.
Top 3 movies of all time ?
1. The American Friend by Wim Wenders with my favorite actor, Bruno Ganz, and Dennis Hopper. Best film about friendship.
2. Faces by John Cassavetes, the overwhelming ease with which life carries on at the end, after the deep, borderline drama the characters just went through.
3. Boy A by John Crowley, English TV film. Took me three days to recover. Brilliantly explores the possibility of what makes us human and the notion of forgiveness.
Top 3 albums of all time?
1. Pink Moon by Nick Drake, feels like home.
2. Bach’s Goldberg Variations by Glenn Gould - otherworldly.
3. Closing Time by Tom Waits, teenage memories.
Favorite 'go to' item of clothing in your closet ?
Currently, a vintage black 501 I cut off at ankle height.
