Gilda and Pearl – silk pyjamas for vintage vixens!
“Movie star, oh movie star!” If I could get away with wearing silk pyjamas worthy of my 1930s and 40s film heroines (think Veronica Lake, Joan Crawford or Rita Hayworth) as daywear, I certainly would have no reservations in doing just that! After all, Coco Chanel herself was a huge fan of such attire and was often seen wearing her PJs outside her boudoir. And then of course there’s silk. Can you think of another fabric that feels more luxurious caressing your skin than silk? Perhaps for many, the combination of silk and pyjamas may seem a luxury but for me, they’re simply a necessity. As the right outfit, says the left half of my brain to its counterpart on the other side; “silk pyjamas clearly help my creative juices to flow!” And… As I spend a lot of time writing, researching and editing, most of it being done from the comfort of my antique French bed, this demands nothing less than unequivocal fully-featured… Cinemascope glamour!!! Deep breathe. Focus.
