When I lost my eye in a car accident, the first place I went—because I had no place to go except the hotel room I was living in then—was to Palm Springs, to Frank. You can have a tendency, at a time like that, for self-pity: ‘Oh, what am I going to do?’ He cut it off by making me laugh. The jokes started when I was in the hospital and they continue today: An eye chart with an inscription: “To Smokey. Practice. Practice.” (He calls me Smokey because I smoke so much.) A gift: half a pair of binoculars, with the other half sawed off for Jilly Rizzo, whose bad eye is on the opposite side. The card: “You guys should get together.” The only thing Sinatra ever said of a serious nature was, “Don’t worry about nothing”—and that’s the umbrella.

SWINTON: This is a one-off piece by my friend Setsuo Aarb, a Japanese-Dutch designer based in Eindhoven. It is a semi-translucent tube sheath with an unconstructed neck hole. Setsuo wanted it to suggest a daikon radish without appropriating the literal form of a daikon radish. It’s quite comfortable—for a man too. You could wear one, Bill.
