My Favorite Things

Born in Maputo, Mozambique, Cassi Namoda lived in Indonesia, Kenya, Haiti, Benin, and Uganda—all before completing high school. Now, based between Manhattan and the Berkshires, the young artist, who’s worked for the fashion designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh and collaborated with the likes of J. Crew and Catbird, has become known for ensembles that are nearly as alluring as her fantastical paintings. Here, she highlights her favorite international finds, from French oil paints to Austrian bath salts

1991 Grand Vintage Single Malt Scotch Whiskey
