Beautiful sleepwear is our passion and we are continuously sourcing inspiration from the past, present and future. Movies, have always been a big influence in fashion design and we have picked some of our favourite screen bedroom looks, worn by cinema's most iconic women.
Sexy, sweet, femme fatale, masculine: what links them is the portrayal of a woman in her most private space, her bedroom and in her most intimate of clothing, her sleepwear.
