Pyjamas cut to perfection Born out of the founders own search for desirable pyjamas, the Raphalla Riboud collection of luxury pyjamas combines the ease of American sportswear with Parisian effortless polish. The best of both worlds, she says. An art de vivre Raphalla, whose passions include all things related to interior decoration, art and food, craved simple-yet-desirable pieces to slip into at home that would reflect her relaxed, artsy lifestyle. Taking the androgynous classic mens pyjama as the collections starting point, with proportions tailored to flatter the female form, a symphony of influences perfume the line, from summers spent holidaying with family in Nantucket on Americas preppy East Coast, to Raphalla's Parisian leftbank upbringing. The collection offers pyjamas to suit every occasion and mood, from a fresh Liberty-print cotton style to a slinky black-tie pyjama set. They are simple clothes made luxuriously. What I love about American sportswear is that there is a function to the clothes, and so theyre clever. And the simplicity of the pyjama is clever, theres no fuss, she says.

About Raphalla Riboud Born on Paris left bank, Raphalla comes from a creative and cosmopolitan background. She went on to carve out a career in fashion, moving to London in 2002 where she worked on the editorial teams of Tatler and British Vogue. Returning to Paris a few years later, she joined the PR team of the Christian Dior fashion house. But Raphalla had always held ambitions to start her own lifestyle line.

The Launch of the Raphalla Riboud Pyjama Collection Designer Raphalla Riboud launched her signature pyjama line in cult Paris multi-brand store Colette for the fall-winter 2012 season. The capsule collection housed one print, one solid and one jersey style. Into its fourth season, the springsummer 14 collection has e x p a n d e d i n t o d a y w e a r, eveningwear and nightwear options, going from striking mixand-match silk PJs in different prints to an ultra chic evening pyjama declined in heavy Moroccan crepe or sexy sheer black silk georgette, much like the Pyjamas du Soir the designers mother would wear when she was a child. Diverse in mood, ranging from print to a classic solid, any of the styles can be worn to sleep in, with among the more traditional options a mercerized cottonjersey style with a structured satiny hand. The core Raphalla Riboud pyjama silhouette pairs a slightly tapered ankle-length bottom with a PJ top adjusted at the shoulder and wrists for a snug fit like a boy's b l a z e r. D e t a i l s i n c l u d e Japanese silk piping and mother-of-pearl buttons.
