I came across Caftanii browsing Instagram (obviously) and it felt like I was inherently linked with the vibe of the brand. From its Tuscan hillside shots, eating fuzzy “pesca” by the water, to the blues of the Mediterranean it is everything my childhood (and adult life) is about.
Deep in the Tuscan hills two sisters create what they call “casual couture”. I was completely enamored by this description because it sums up the way I want to dress.
Here you’ll meet the twins behind the brand we are currently coveting.
TO: I am in love with your aesthetic and effortless style, what made you start Caftanii Firenze?
CF: We wanted to offer a charming and timeless way to wear an everyday, seasonless piece whose delicate lines make women feel the true meaning of beauty and elegance.
Our mother is our muse since day one. She has always worn white linen caftans in the summertime, and she has always taught us not to forget good manners and to pay attention to details and to be gentle. These were, and still are, the most important guidelines when we create our collections. Our mission is to communicate a sensual and casual femininity without any excess, just by being oneself.
TO: Your clothing is made to perfection, do you work with local artisans to achieve such beauty?
CF: Thank you so much Dana for appreciating and supporting Caftanii!Considering the weight our Italian artisan heritage carries worldwide, we take great pride in stating that every Caftanii piece is conceived and produced entirely within the Tuscan borders by the tailors surrounding the province of Florence. We strongly believe in Made in Italy, a true hallmark of uniqueness, integrity, reliability and utmost quality. This also applies to the choice of fabrics – 100% Italian – to which we pay particular attention.
TO: To me dressing in sets is the easiest way to look chic and effortless. Tell us more about your sets?
CF: Caftanii commits to reconnecting individuals with the value of tailored garments, with the history and the creative processes that generate its unique pieces.
We love sets for several reasons. Of course we started our project focusing our collections on caftans as “one piece dresses”, but we immediately felt the need to work with sets too. We believe it’s important to offer sets together with caftans not only to expand our collections but mostly because they make you feel chic and effortlessly elegant and they are the best option for so many occasion! We love the idea that wearing sets make you feel confident and accurate, charming and casual at the same time. So you will only have to choose your accessories and you’re ready to shine!
Our sets, and our creations in general, aim to defy banalization and being standardized by current fashion trends, challenging the weight of time. Maximum attention to details is dedicated to the production of every single piece, evoking hedonistic feelings and guaranteeing unconditional quality and durability, thus becoming a timeless treasure.
TD: Finally, tell us what your favorite piece is.
CF: Both Ginevra and I love the Vittoria Caftan. Then our favorites are:
