Color: Blue Multi Stripe
Product Details

Civilized in Palm Springs.


At the Metropolitan Museum of Art, you can find a caftan from the 8th-century, which is a real testament to theenduring appeal and function of this iconic style.

Fast forward to 1934. The studios were serious about the "two hour rule" (no actor could be more than two hours away from L.A. during filming) so film stars established a sanctuary in Palm Springs. Out of the hungry public eye. An oasis in all ways.

The caftan made quite a stir there in the ‘70s, and now it’s happening again.

Makes perfect sense. The easy, loose fit. A stay-cool, look-cool staple for a new modern age.

Pair it with a linen trouser and you’re in the door at Le Vallauris for brunch.

Perfect for poolside in the afternoon.


You get the idea.
