My Favorite Things

Whether she’s styling artist Alex Katz, designing the grand Michelin-starred Al Coro restaurant, or curating exhibitions for Roman and Williams’ Guild Gallery, Akari Endo-Gaut’s singular sensibility can be seen far and wide. Born and raised in Japan, the creative director began her career in Paris at Self Service magazine before moving to New York, where she now splits her time between Soho and East Hampton with her husband, photographer Adrian Gaut, and their eight-year-old son. Below, Endo-Gaut shares her exquisite essentials


From $84.00

Cairo Towels

“I am very picky about home linens. After having tried many other towels, I can say these are the best. I love the curved edge and very absorbent but great quality cotton.”



Silk Pocket Square

“I’ve been wearing Charvet’s men’s scarves for 20 years, from casual to formal scenes. I have many sizes in many colors. They also protect my sensitive skin.”

Ippodo Tea



“I absolutely can’t live without Hojicha, which I drink hot and cold. It’s roasted green tea, which contains much less caffeine than steamed green tea. Ippodo’s teas are all so carefully made. I love their stores in Japan too.”

Axel Einar Hjorth


1930s “Lovö” Chair by Nordiska Kompaniet

“I love beautifully designed furniture. I have two Charlotte Perriand for Les Arcs benches, and Axel Einar Hjorth chairs, another chef d’oeuvre of the 20th century. They are beautifully executed wood designs of Art Deco and Modernism.”



Retinol 0.5

“My skin care is shockingly simple and cheap. A few years ago, I was introduced to this retinol cream. Now, I mix it with a Dr. Hauschka moisturizer. I love the texture of my skin the next morning—it’s so smooth and plumped.”



Sleeveless Bodysuit

“This bodysuit is one of my closet classics. I’ve dreamt of owning an Azzedine design since childhood—he knew women best of any designer in the world. As a stylist, I loved going to his Paris atelier and chatting with the couturiers and people around him.”



Giza 45 Percale Sheets

“I’ve tried many sheets and these are the best sheets in the world. They’re soft but crunchy, like pressed shirts from the dry cleaner.”



Arius Digital Piano

“I learned to play the piano when I was little but hated taking lessons. During Covid, I went back to it and became addicted. Now, I love playing for hours and hours at night while listening to Ryuichi Sakamoto and Bach on headphones.”


From $70.00

Blue Danube China Dinnerware

“My mother has always collected porcelain. Upon my marriage, she offered us this set as a family tradition. She had them as decoration, but I love using them in real life to feel elevated, though I do get nervous seeing my husband drinking coffee out of it every morning! ”



Men’s Silver Bracelet

“This chunky silver men’s bracelet is another classic that I wear everyday. I always love men’s wardrobes, so it’s my perfect companion.”



Trunk Suitcase

“My Rimowa luggage is like my second husband. They have traveled with me all over the world and I love them dearly. They’ve changed my life.”



Panthère de Cartier Gold Watch

“My husband’s gift to me that I wear all the time. I love the design so much. I’ve never worn round face watches; it’s been always square. I love the masculine elements of it as well as the truly sexy chain design and name, Panthère.”
