Festivals are a great excuse to wear a kimono but without the thrill of playing dress-up during these strange times, we look to elevate our at-home look with something similar. A step up from a festival look, Pagoda makes caftans for the Tropical Hustler.
Inspired by life in Bali, Indonesia, Pagoda has a range of timeless, retro-modern leisure and travel attire designed for the villa, the bar, the boat and beyond — really just embodying a strong island vibe and aesthetic. This month, Pagoda revealed their Signature Collection via Instagram and we saw the brand evolve further with overnight and weekend bags made from high-quality leather and suede with gold plated logo and zippers, organic cotton shorts (that look smashing paired with a caftan) and the Original Sunday Jacket fashioned from a soft corduroy. The Pagoda Debut Signature Collection is all about new fabrics, new prints and 18 karat gold plated details.
There isn’t much more to be said about Pagoda as there certainly is an air of mystery about the brand, one that embodies exclusivity with handcrafted, bespoke and made-to-order pieces. Their website tells us their ethos is centred around living life on your own terms, creating and manifesting your own reality, and inspiring others to do the same... “a dangerous prospect to the powers that be”.
Though the creators are more looking to dress someone who espouses a luxury lifestyle look rather than headed to a festival, they are too DJs and that’s how we stumbled upon them as their caftans have made a name for themselves within the music scene.
Low key and organic, the brand's small but growing cult following follows them online and depends on word of mouth for recommendations, "hey where did you get that from?" . Take a look at a couple of snaps from their new collection above and reach out to them here for a private sale of limited edition styles.
