TREND: SILK AND SLUMBER
Sleepwalking - the comfiest trend of this year so far and a trend I personally have slowly (but surely) fallen in love with. The perfect combination of sensual silk, complete comfort and an effortless twist on relaxed tailoring. But although pyjama shirts and silk slip dresses have become our new wardrobe favourites only recently, Dolce and Gabbana were parading the catwalk in their PJ's at their Spring/Summer 2009 shows. With influential models such as Chanel Iman and a young Karlie Kloss showcasing a collection so beautiful and captivating - what has taken us all seven years to follow suit?
My completely honest answer would have to be fear. Fear that walking down the high street even in the most high-end perfectly crafted pyjama shirt would still have people wondering how you could have possibly forgotten to get dressed that morning? People aren't as afraid to express themselves as they were seven years ago. Everyone wears whatever they want regardless of what others think. We have learnt to embrace our own style and respect each other's personal style too. We are continually empowering one another as the fashion industry evolves with us and I love that. Just make sure to leave your slippers at home!
