Hedonism (the Good Kind).

You sought something unfussy and versatile.

Easy chic.

But now it's out of the box.

Soft, light cotton. But not fragile.

Something happens.

There are flashier dresses than this, but they won't feel as exhilarating.

Like a clap of raucous thunder, there's a jolt. Ideas abound. Hopelessly irresponsible travel. Sardinia, Rome, Pescara. Solving the New York Times crossword puzzle (Saturday, not Monday). All in a day. All in one dress.

This, of course, is not on the level of Lady Idina Sackville-type hedonism. If it were, you'd hang this near the door of your safari bungalow and spend the rest of the night welcoming guests from the green onyx tub. You'd be summoned to dinner around midnight, then show up at 2 a.m. wearing this with a scarf around your neck and tall leather boots. Further conquests and a murder plot would be discussed.

But it's not entirely like that.

Hedonistic Shirtdress. 7.6 oz cotton with some added stretch. Garment-dyed. 13 buttons down the front allow for varying degrees of innocence. self-fabric belt, chest pockets, buttoned cuffs, calf length. In Khaki, with band collar (No. 6485) and Indigo, with stand-up collar (No. 6484). Imported.
