Luxury Nightwear Trends
In the past couple of years, the line between daywear and nightwear has becoming increasingly blurred, with luxe silk pyjamas flooding the catwalk at London Fashion Week and everyone from Emma Watson and Kate Hudson to Gigi Hadid rocking the sleepwear-as-daywear trend on the street.
Having a spaghetti-strapped cotton-and-lace nightgown, a super-soft cashmere robe or a pair of liquid-like silk pyjamas in your wardrobe is a must, as they can be as essential a part of your eveningwear edit as the little black dress.
But how can you pull off this ultra chic look without looking as if you’ve just got out of bed? It’s relatively easy – you just need to make sure you’re wearing the right shapes and fabrics. A pair of heels is also essential. Strappy heels add balance to a pair of draping silk trousers, just as they do with wide-leg trousers. Teaming a tailored pyjama top with jeans and a blazer and a statement necklace fulfils the smart-casual aesthetic, while an elegant robe creates the perfect evening look when paired with a favourite dress.
Classic colours and bold prints will help to define your look and give an air of sophistication, while subtle detailing, such as contrasting piped hems, lace trims and pockets, give a nod to sleepwear while bringing an extra touch of refined elegance, and resulting in a perfectly polished look for any situation.
As lifestyles have changed and society has adopted a more relaxed attitude to flexible working hours, many professional women are choosing to work from home. While a blouse and pencil skirt can feel too formal or restrictive to wear at home, looking and feeling good are still important, and, while comfort is crucial, sitting at a desk in sweatpants will feel unnatural to many. This is where chic luxury loungewear comes into its own.
Up until the 1920s, pyjamas were predominantly worn by men, and it had been deemed socially unacceptable for women to wear trousers, especially in public. Coco Chanel revolutionised the way women dress by introducing beautiful and distinctive luxury loungewear pieces, and allowing women to be free to express their individual style through a new, more masculine way of dressing. Chanel successfully combined chic elegance with practicality, just as Morpho + Luna does today.
Since launching in 2014, Morpho + Luna has been a driving force in the growth of the luxury loungewear market. With garments that are chic yet versatile and created with superior craftsmanship and with the finest attention to detail, they are designed to suit a number of occasions, functioning as sleepwear, loungewear, daywear and evening wear for the adventurous, independent woman.
Morpho + Luna’s Inés pyjama set is the perfect example of how this revolution has influenced design; boasting a masculine shape, it’s woven from the finest Italian silk and is finished with the kind of professional detailing you might find in your favourite blouse. Offering both practicality and a luxurious feel, it can be worn by day and by night, so that transitioning from office mode to relaxation mode can be as simple as walking from one room to another.
This transition from one state to another – from day to night, from dreams to reality – is a concept that runs throughout our collections, reflecting our inspirations in the natural world (the Morpho butterfly) and in mythology (Morpheus, the Greek god of dreams).
When it comes to bedtime, our beautifully soft, sensual pieces are far removed from the scratchy, uncomfortable ‘sexy’ nightwear of the past. Looking great doesn’t mean compromising on comfort, and our designs will make you feel beautiful as well as relaxed.
They are also designed to complement your individual tastes, in terms of both personal style and home décor. Whether your look is modern or traditional, avant-garde or minimalist, monochrome or rich in colour, our elegant designs will work in perfect harmony with their surroundings. Our signature pieces are available in a number of different fabrics and colours, and also in a number of limited-edition prints, so you can always find something to suit your taste.
Our versatile garments are designed to be dressed up or down, and can be mixed with staple pieces in your wardrobe. For example, why not pair your Coco camisole with your favourite jeans, or team your Chloe nightdress with an oversized jacket and biker boots?
Whether you want to relax at home or make a style statement, you’ll find something that will work for you in Morpho + Luna’s sophisticated and versatile collection. Allowing you to make the transition from one to the other with ease, our timeless pieces are sure to become an essential part of your wardrobe.
