I’m a big pyjama person. I love them so much that it’s not uncommon for me to come home after work, shower and change straight into my pyjamas. The same goes for my girls. They’ll often come home from school and get into their pjs to mark the time to relax, unwind and spent some down time as a family. With my penchant for all things sleepwear, I was so thrilled to be approached to design my own collection!
Earlier in the year, I hosted a Mother’s Day lunch for Wanderluxe Sleepwear and immediately fell in love with the brand. There was a great connection and I felt an affinity to everything the brand is, particularly their design aesthetic, attention to detail and focus on fine tailoring. The pyjamas themselves are unbelievably comfortable with a focus on using beautiful, soft fabrics to create pieces that you’ll want to lounge in all day. I was honoured to be asked to collaborate with Wanderluxe as it’s such a dream to be able to curate and design a collection that focuses on one of my most frequently used staples—pyjamas!
The broader theme of my collection is a “A Sunday Well Spent” and I wanted the collection to be the kind of sleepwear that you want to spend a lazy, leisurely morning in. Every single piece in the collection is a reflection of my own style, including my appreciation of good tailoring, and in particular my love of colour. My inspiration for the colour palette used in the collection is based on an Australian summer, from the purple of jacaranda trees, the neverending crisp blue sky, and the pink and red tones of summer florals, plus there’s a horseshoe or two in a nod to my horse racing background. It really is me in sleepwear form!
I know everyone has their own individual preferences when it comes to pjs so there’s a variety of different silhouettes in this collection. From a night shirt, to a boxer set to a camisole slip dress, there’s a style to suit every kind of preference. I wanted to bring a resort-style luxuriousness to each piece in this collection and I hope that you’ll find something you’ll want to wear to bed, to relax and beyond.
