Hands up if the last time you wore something that wasn’t either elasticated or made from a soft, stretchy fabric was back in March? We hear ya. It’s a widespread wardrobe shift that’s not gone unnoticed by brands, with many pivoting to loungewear in a bid to feed our shopping cravings with something that’s actually relevant to what we’re doing right now. Read: not a lot.
Now Rixo, the London-based label known for its punchy prints and beautiful silk dresses have launched one of the chicest loungewear collections we’ve seen all lockdown. With a focus on pyjamas that definitely aren’t just for sleeping in, you’ll also find robes, nightdresses, separates and eye masks to make staying in a lot more stylish.
Rixo founders Orla McCloskey and Henrietta Rix began designing the drop during the first lockdown, and it’s landed just in time for round two. This being Rixo, a brand loved by celebs including Holly Willoughby, Millie Mackintosh and Sandra Bullock, this loungewear is boujee-er than your average, made from luxurious cotton-silk mixes and elevated with details like embroidered collars and, of course, Rixo’s signature prints. While it’s definitely at the investment end of the spectrum – prices start at £55 for an eye mask, going up to £195 for a PJ set – seeing as we might be staying home for the forseeable, it’s the perfect treat to make up for all those plans you’ve missed out on this year. Plus, the pieces aren’t just for indoors. The scalloped-collar Flora nightshirt doubles up as the perfect Zoom-call top, while the PJ tops could definitely be half-tucked into jeans and the 90s style slip nightshirts would look great layered over a white tee. Style, comfort and considerable cost-per-wear – add to basket (or your Christmas list) while you still can, it’s selling fast.
