Resort Highlight: Caftans

1 18 2012

Marchesa Beaded Caftan, 212 872 2843

Caftan / kaf-tan/ n. (also kaftan)

Deliciously long & loose evening dress made unique by slit neckline, decorative embroidery and long, full, bell-shaped sleeves. Popularized by stylish women in the 1960s who wanted something a bit breezy to wear while breezing through cocktail events (they adopted the style from gents in countries of the Near East). Most appropriately worn during Resort Season, particularly on those drifting about the islands.  Designers well-versed in this boho-chic evening look include Naeem Khan, Marchesa (featured above), Badgley Mischka and Lorena Sarbu.  Best paired with sandals, clutch and a mysterious joie de vivre. Find the latest styles on our fourth floor or call 212 872 2863 for more details.
