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. 

 

  • Left: Marilyn Monroe in Some Like It Hot (1959) in all her glorious techni-colour.
  • Middle: Catherine Deneuve in Repulsion (1965) wearing a spotted tulle baby doll; a classic boudoir look from the 1960’s.
  • Right: Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface (1983) the epitome of cool in a slinky camisole.

 

  • Left: Sophia Loren in Marriage Italian Style (1964) an iconic barely-there creation worn with such aplomb by the glorious Sophia.
  • Middle: Zhnag Ziyi in Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) captures the beauty and sensuality of printed silk Japanese robes.
  • Right: Marlene Dietrich in Shanghai Express (1932) black silk, black lace and black feathers - worn by the goddess that is Marlene Dietrich.

 

  • Left: Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) another timeless choice from Miss Golightly: a man’s classic shirt.
  • Middle: Rita Hayworth in Gilda (1946) is the ultimate femme fatale in a nude soufflé negligee.
  • Right: Elizabeth Taylor in a fitted cream silk and lace slip in Butterfield 8 (1960) a role in which she won her first Academy Award.

 

  • Left: Margot Robbie in The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) fighting Leonardo DiCaprio armed in La Perla.
  • Middle: Audrey Tatou in Coco before Chanel (2009) a fashion visionary in a crisp, off-white pair of men’s style pyjamas, piped in blue. A look that remains a favourite sleepwear choice for many women.
