Fashion's done its thing in London and moved onto Milan, leaving
us with dreams of spring looks to come. But wearing all that
fashionable gear can be exhausting and often when you get home you
want to change into something comfy. But the problem with comfy is
it's rarely chic.
This was the problem encountered by Paris-based Raphaella
Riboud, who whilst working for Dior, Vogue and Tatler spent her
days in heels and full-on elegant dresses. But found that when she
got home the comfy options were either bad pastel-coloured or in
grotty fabrics better suited to the gym.
So Raphaella made herself some pyjamas. Tailored, chic, made in
France with heavy silks from Italy. They were a success. Raphaella
added to the line with prints and shorts and negligees. Boutique
Colette wanted them.
And the great thing is, not only do they fit the
post-work-relaxing bill, but they're amazing for travelling as they
don't crease. Wear them on holiday to ward against moquitoes or
with heels to go out. Just don't think of them as pyjamas, but a
smart silk pants-suit.
