Pyjama Party: How to Slumber in Style

10 Jan 2019 | Updated on: 27 Sep 2022 |By Mhairi Mann

As louche loungewear continues to transcend the catwalk to bedrooms and dinner parties alike, we round-up the finest silk pyjama sets and cotton separates for devil-may-care decadence, day or night

If ever there was a month made for elasticated waists, loose silhouettes and reclusive nights in, it’s January. Make like a Hollywood siren and slip into a pair of sartorially on-point, tailored pyjamas that can also be dressed up for dinner – just the thing for those days when you literally want to roll out of bed.

Silk sets by luxe pyjama pioneers Olivia Von Halle and Asceno London make for a laidback and subtly sexy evening look, whether insouciantly pairing a PJ shirt with denim – three buttons undone – or daring a head-to-toe coordinating set, worn with a barely-there heel. Nui Ami’s languid pyjamas were made for sophisticated slouching, while Anine Bing has just opened her first standalone UK boutique on Grosvenor Street in Mayfair, stocking her bestselling silk camisole tops, imbued with a rock ‘n’ roll edge.

Co-founded by Molly Goddard, Desmond and Dempsey’s super-soft pure cotton shirts and slip tops double up as chic beach cover-ups, adorned with prowling tigers, wafting palms and exuberant blooms, while Sleeper sets are decadently trimmed with marabou feathers.
