Manufactum: old school shopping

By Colin Chapman on January 12th, 2009

In these times of global megabrands and identikit shopping experiences, it’s refreshing to discover a site like Manufactum. Featuring a quirky mix of unique, traditionally-made items from gloves and wallets to toiletries and household items, it’s a site that’s easy to get lost in. A bit like wandering around an undiscovered department store from another era, Manufactum specialises in original, often hand-made products which make perfect gifts. A few favourites from the huge range available: braided leather belts, classic striped matelot tops, silk stripe pyjamas and this gorgeously-packaged Klar’s curd soap. A rare pleasure.

Christmas is over: buy yourself some pyjamas

By Colin Chapman on December 29th, 2008

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.

WISHLIST: Paul Smith Pyjamas

By Will Reid on March 27th, 2008

“Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” If good old Coco Chanel was right (which really isn’t a question) then there is really no reason to feel as guilty as I do about desiring these pricey PJs from Paul Smith. Prepare yourself now for some major alliteration.
