January looms and you’re trying very hard to wear proper clothes again, but really there couldn’t be a better time to invest in some lovely pyjamas.
Isabelle’s post on finding inspiration in classic movies like It Happened One Night, left me thinking just how fantastic Mr Gable looked in his pyjamas. Meanwhile The Sartorialist posted recently on how he’d decided to take sartorialism into the bedroom by investing in some stylish PJs.
If you need more convincing, nightwear as daywear will be a feature of S/S 09, (at least as interpreted by Dolce & Gabbana) and we’ll be all vertical stripes and drawstring pants by then so why not get some practice in? No doubt anti-fashion writer Alexis Petridis (The Guardian magazine) will be deriding the PJ trend soon but don’t let the sight of him in nightwear put you off.
Brands? Derek Rose (from Selfridges and online) is the prince of PJs or try M&S .. your mother would be so proud.
