With a month long holiday in India coming up, I knew I had to get some stand-out holiday wear. I thought about the different eras of recreational wear and began racking the (fashion) history books for inspiration- jumpsuits, capri pants, high-waisted slacks, kaftans, tunics, dungarees…the list goes on. But then, as with all moments of fashion genius, America’s Next Top Model came on the telly and I was reminded of the genius that is Jeremy Scott.
Last week we featured Jeremy Scott’s tyre-print pyjama style trousers which is a great way to get into the loungewear trend.
Pyjama style pants were a big trend on the menswear catwalks and are set to break onto the high street next summer.
Considering Victor Glemaud’s first collection was only Spring/Summer 2007, he’s garnered a remarkable amount of attention in a very short time. It’s no coincidence that he was a publicist before he moved into the fashion world, although he also worked as a design advisor for Paco Rabanne for a year before opening his own line in July 2006.
If Brandish were a political party our key campaigning issues would be madras shirts, short shorts and sleepwear. Consider this post a campaign for sleepwear. If long johns are a step too far for you to wear outside the house, then you might want to start on something simple. Like this *****L Bathrobe (€120).
You know when you’ve become so accustomed to something that things that should look odd don’t anymore? That’s how I’m starting to feel with the pyjamas look. Wearing your pyjamas outside of the house should make you look like an extra from One flew over the Cuckoo’s nest – instead I’m thinking that it’s quite a wearable look. As long as you don’t stray too far from your house.
