Steven Tai says he’s already feeling like an old man, though he’s only 31. Contemplating his preference for Netflix over nightclubs, he referenced “Freaky Friday” — the 1976 Jodie Foster version — to hint at an old soul trapped inside a young person’s body.

His girls sat embroidering, wearing clothes that called on octogenarian wardrobe staples. A pale blue cashmere cardigan, edged in lilac and finished with big pearl buttons, came with a full skirt in navy with a micro-floral jacquard.
One clever garment was the two-tone cream-and-taupe silk blouse designed to look like a pair of enthusiastically hoisted granny underwear when tucked into a nice pair of navy bloomers. It looked much better (and sexier) than it sounds.
