Joan Smalls NY Times Spring 2011 Issue


Model: Joan Smalls is featured in NY Times Spring 2011 issue in “Trend no 2 The Caftan” photographed by Sharif Hamza and styling by Ethel Park.
“A kaftan or caftan (from Persian خفتان) is a man’s cotton or silk cloak buttoned down the front, with full sleeves, reaching to the ankles and worn with a sash.
The kaftans worn by the Ottoman sultans constitute one of the most splendid collections of Topkapı Palace in Istanbul. Some of them were so precious that they were given as rewards to important dignitaries and victorious generals during elaborate religious festivals”wiki
