This week we bring you an update on what is happening in the trendy pyjama fashion world. The growing love affair with PJs has turned into a major success story for many designers. The new lifestyle trend they say, is for us to come home from work, kick off the heels, slip out of the suit and office clothes and change into pyjamas or alternatively, your favourite onesie. InStyle website reported that trendy pyjama fashion has hit the catwalk and that it is now acceptable to be seen wearing pyjamas in the street. Of course our climate may be a bit chilly for cotton sleepwear and as they say, “The trickiest thing about pyjamas in the day is the cover-up which, if you live in England, can’t be ignored. They’re best wore alone but if you need a coat, opt for a dressing gown style” Maybe our Wizard Gown.
And for the ultimate in trendy pyjama fashion who would have thought that onesies would be on the cutting edge of popular culture. Yet we read dancers and roller skaters in sheer onesies will form part of a three-month art installation in London exploring sexual identity. Visitors to the Barbican can expect to experience two naked performers standing still, rolling on the floor laughing, or slowly making their way to a chaise longue. At all times a rollerskater in a onesie will glide around the space, that also includes corridors, scaffolding and surreal artworks. The installation is free to attend and is on now until the beginning of 2016.
And finally we enjoyed this article which appeared on Yahoo news and had a friendly poke at some fashion mistakes which appeared on the ASOS website. ASOS, as you probably know, has been the darling of UK internet fashion sales for the past few years. The name comes from As Seen On Screen and was originally going to bring you women’s fashions that you might have seen in the latest films but it has since diversified into a general clothing marketplace. In their financial year to end August 2015 they reported revenues of over £1.1 bn and nearly 10 million active customers. But they don’t always get it right it seems.
