Pyjamas by Lisa & Co, €59.95

Pyjamas, along with crossbody bags, leggings and trainers, have been the absolute breakout stars in retail over the last 18 months. In our recalibrated lives, we drilled down to the things that really worked for us, and the lifestyle fashion sector responded.

There has been a steady stream of new pyjamas products coming through from Irish brands, including Lisa McGowan’s Lisa & Co pyjamas, which come in two lovely prints in an easycare satin finish.

Meanwhile, the KDK brand has added to its popular range of PJs on its lifestyle site. KDK excels at developing house prints, often based on photographs taken by Keira Kennedy, one of the two sisters behind the brand, that are then given the artistic treatment at her studio in Dublin. KDK is introducing new styles made with EcoVero viscose in floral-inspired prints called Motion Blur and Midnight Garden.

Meanwhile, Cliona O’Brien of Moon+Mellow has just launched her new Nomad collection of organic cotton voile pieces, which are now available for pre-order.

Her pyjamas (€190) are very popular, and the big news here is that Cliona has introduced a new robe in the Tribal Flower print in pink.

It’s priced at €235, and if you fancy pampering yourself, there’s a luxury quilted robe, which she calls the ‘Housecoat’. The hero piece of the new winter collection costs €398 and features puff lantern sleeves and deep pockets. The cotton voile has been quilted with padding in a linear design for extra comfort and warmth.

The idea is to wear it lounging around the house or styled with jeans by day. “Think chic duvet day on the move,” says Cliona

Her timing could not be more perfect because the clocks go back an hour tonight. That may mean an extra hour in bed tomorrow, but the change can cause some people issues with staying asleep for their full eight hours, so all the more reason to step away from your work uniform and invest in some sleepwearmoonandmellow.com

Video of the Day

Jacinta Caraher of Purple Peach is a bride’s dream, especially if you want to do something very different for your big day.

During lockdown, brides were requesting trouser-based outfits, so she designed the ‘Jennifer’ tailored jumpsuit and cropped cape (inset). The jumpsuit has a cutaway halter bodice with embroidered lace, and it’s a great example of how the Co Monaghan-based designer showcases her love of mixing and layering fabrics over each other.

Winner of several design awards, Jacinta has created hundreds of couture designs for brides over the years.

After a 10-year break while raising four children, I am happy to report that Jacinta has relaunched Purple Peach, and she is approaching bridal with a renewed vision which, she says, is heavily focused on sustainability and her boundless, contemporary bride.

Her ideas for bespoke bridal are fresh and exciting. Prices start from €2,000 and run to about €6,000. Midway on that price scale, you will find her showstopping ‘Heather’ gown made in a gleaming oyster pearl double-sided satin with a flattering V-neck.

Jacinta is all about maintaining the calm with the creative during the design process, and has lots of ideas for two-bride weddings. purplepeach.ie

Tommy Hilfiger and Timberland, two fashion titans who shaped the style and zeitgeist of the 1990s, have joined forces for a collab called TommyXTimberland.

The first drop of Sampling Our Past landed this week, and the 16-piece hybrid capsule includes hero pieces like the zip-off carpenter pants, recycled parka, and a version of the iconic yellow suede boot (€250) with a remix of the classic Tommy Hilfiger flag and added zip detailing. tommy.com

 

And speaking of sleep...

I bumped into Anne Marie Boyhan who started the award-winning whatshewears.ie in 2009, covering runway trends, celebrity style and shopping secrets.

Her career trajectory changed in recent years, and it turns out she was a sleep-deprived mum and marketeer too, who, after exhaustive research, set up The Sleep Care Company, that offers sleep solutions including satin PJs, silk masks and pillowcases, and cashmere bed socks.

Her Sleep Journal (€30) has affirmations, a sleep tracker and sleep techniques based on academic research by some of the world’s top sleep experts. Next weekend, she is running a sleep retreat in Co Wicklow, and there’s one in early January too. thesleepcarecompany.com
