For some time we have noted the growing popularity of pyjamas and this week it seems people from all walks of life love pyjamas. Our image shows glamour model Gabi Grecko preparing for a photo shoot with a pyjama party theme. Shy Gabi recently posted images across social media with her new bisexual girlfriend, Angélique ‘Frenchy’ Morgan. The transatlantic couple are enjoying time together in Malibu where British Celebrity Big Brother star Frenchy lives. Gabi will soon return to her hometown of New York to prepare for the release of her debut adult film.
And you may have caught this interview on Today with Rumer Willis. The oldest daughter of Bruce of course, and Demi Moore, she has had a busy year starring on stage New York in the musical Chicago and appearing on Dancing with the Stars, the US version of Strictly Come Dancing. “I love pyjamas and have about 20 animal onesies” she said. That’s our kind of customer. And we can exclusively announce that Rumer will be co-starring with her Dad in a new film “Don’t Die Hard just Wear Pyjamas”.
You may have noticed that the US Primaries are in full swing and Ted Cruz has wheeled out his favourite pyjama joke. “Superman wears Chuck Norris pyjamas, and Chuck Norris wears Scott Walker pyjamas,” said Cruz. For our younger readers, Chuck Norris is a martial arts legend, 6 times world Karate champion, and action hero on the big screen. He even appeared in Expendables 2 and due to his hard man image is often used in jokes such as ‘Chuck Norris was once bitten by a cobra. After five days of agonizing pain, the cobra finally died.’
And we enjoyed this article from the Evening Standard where they chart the rise of our relationship with pyjamas in time for Selfridges launching the Body Studio – a huge retail space dedicated to those who like to buy designer lingerie here, swimwear, fitness apparel and Pyjamas. The Body Studio’s buying manager explained “between 2008 and 2015 we have seen nightwear as a category grow by 900 per cent, taking the business from £200,000 to £2 million.”
We know who else loves pyjamas. The Rolling Stones opened their huge Exhibitionism retrospective at London’s Saatchi Gallery – but it’s the designer ‘bargains’ in their gift shop that’s got social media talking. The Rolling Stones merchandise includes a pair of silk pyjamas costing over £250 – rock and roll. But if you love pyjamas don’t be tempted to takes someone elses. Fox News reported the case of a thief who picked up a package delivered to a porch in Michigan. He was found using the power of social media but the fate of the pyjamas is unclear.
