This past spring Dunn (above), who continues to work as a fashion consultant, decided to lend his eclectic eye to his charming new interior design boutique Overbey & Dunn on Christopher Street. The store acts as a revolving vignette of meticulously curated furniture and home accessories, centered around a chosen motif, with all items for sale before the shop is changed up every eight weeks or so. Its newest theme is “Gentleman/Boudoir” by Russell Piccione.
Here, Dunn professes his love of caftans, horseback-riding and his eight year-old goddaughter’s inimitable style.
Define your style in three words: Immediate, refined bohemian, sentimental.
Daily uniform: Slim pants with a t-shirt or button down. From DIY tie-dye shirts (I tie dye vintage or used pieces and have stacks of white clothes waiting to be done) with Simon Spurr trousers to a linen madras button down with Gucci patterned pants.

Greatest hits: My Lanvin caftan...well all of my caftans. YSL tuxedo shoes with large grosgrain bows.
Preferred footwear: Gucci, Birkenstock and Pierre Hardy.
Finishing touches: Santa Maria Novella Patchouli and my vintage Greek gold pinky rings.
Nighttime look: I never know until I get into my closet.

Best recent discovery: Artist Zak Prekop.
Style pet peeve: Not being comfortable with your choices.
Style icons: Jerry Garcia (for his purple crochet poncho he wears in Gimme Shelter), my eight year-old goddaughter Ladybird, she's a mini bohemian princess and completely uninhibited in her style choices.
Last purchase: A large antique painting of an urn with flowers.
Lusting after: Time to ride my horses, I have four Icelandic ponies on my farm in Pennsylvania and dressage horses kept at my trainer’s barn.

Favorite haunts: Hotel Ritz Paris, Bar Mathis in Paris and my house in Pennsylvania.
Next vacation: A friend’s wedding in Lake Como.
What he’ll pack: Doyle and Mueser cranberry linen suit, crocodile and linen monk strap shoes, good music and my appetite.
