Although I consider myself pretty expert in most areas of clothing, I have to admit that pyjamas aren’t something I know much about. (I wriggle too much to wear them in bed.) However, lil’sis, who is often rather unwell because of the evil MS, is what I would call a world expert in pyjamas. She has shelves of them because she sleeps in them, lounges in them and, I’m pretty sure, goes to the shops in them if she thinks she can get away with it. After all, when you generally feel as though you’ve been hit by a truck, you want to be wearing the most comfortable clothing you possess.
When you are a world expert on pyjamas you know what’s important in a set: they need to be extremely well-made – after all they’re going to get a lot of wear, resilient & fade proof – they’re gonna get washed a lot and last, but not least, they’ve got to look very, very good if they are going to be your everyday wear.
Which is where LA’s Bedhead pyjamas come in. They kindly sent me a pair just before Christmas, which I, erm, re-gifted to lil’sis. Two months later she has reported back that they are by far the best quality pyjamas in her possession, certainly the prettiest, are made from a particularly silky & smooth 250 thread count sateen cotton that hasn’t faded & irons like a dream, (but isn’t necessary so to do), and that she fully expects them to last forever. Which seems like a pretty good recommendation to me.
This is her pair:
The entry level classic Kaleidoscope pyjama $138
But there are also double brushed flannel PJs, stretch PJs, shortie PJs, mens’ PJs, nightshirts & a whole range of luxuriously beautiful Liberty of London Tana Lawn PJs. (One of which is top left.)
Bedhead designer Renee Claire designs all her pyjamas in-house, having grown her company independently. Manufacturing locally in LA, she’s created over 70 jobs & counting, and produces over 50,000 pairs of pjs a year. There’s a Bedhead store in West Hollywood, and they are sold in over 1,500 boutiques worldwide plus department stores including Neiman Marcus. She has also picked out three pairs of pretty pyjamas of which 20% of the purchase price will be donated to the Esperanza Community Housing Corporation in California. Impressive. I like this woman.*
When I first spoke to Bedhead they offered me a discount for LLG readers, but I wanted to see if I really could recommend them before I went ahead & passed it on. Because lil’sis thinks these pyjamas are the cat’s mieow, and I believe her to be a world expert in pyjamas, I have agreed to offer my wonderful readers a not insubstantial 15% off any regular priced PJ. Just enter the discount code LIBERTY at checkout.
Sweet dreams my darlings.
*I also reeeeely like her publicist because she owns two adora-dachshunds, Tucker (l) & Cooper (r), & we all know how this blog feels about dachshunds.
