There is something wonderfully, luxuriously decadent about

wearing pyjama/lounge pieces as day, outdoor attire.

It seems excitingly reminiscent of

old Hollywood – before talkies;  and the

glamourous starlets – such as silent film beauty Louise Brooks

who during the roaring ’20s,

was an loungewear wardrobed

on-screen enchantress .

The affect of  ’20s style pyjama-dress –

 carefree,  charismatic-charged,  indulgent  comfort…

 was an inspiration for the

seductive a/w collection presented by

Marc Jacobs

The designer who in the ’90s

transported grunge wear

from the streets to the runway;

now provocatively, yet elegantly

takes pyjama-wear from in-doors

to the wide- open.

He too sports jim jam attire,

wearing the above striped shirt/trouser set

to the launch party for the

bottle wrappings he designed for Diet Coke.
