For Restless Sleepers is always a sensual and magical affair, being a testament to Francesca Ruffini’s trailblazing creativity and showing she can repeatedly reimagine the humble pyjama into a thing of opulence, luxury and grace! For this season, she travelled to Vietnam, Japan, Hong Kong, India and Shanghai and we saw these influences clearly and viscerally, with colourful prints of Imperial Indian peacocks, Rajasthani monkeys, Japanese cherry trees and forests in Vietnam with luscious foliage. . Silk organza robes with twill silk pyjama suits and an ankle grazing jacket were just a few of the oriental inspired imperial elegance that we were treated to for this season. I myself am such a fan of nightwear as daywear, as not only is it super comfortable but there is certainly no chance of anyone turning up in the same outfit. It is just so elegant without even having to try!
