In the hills of Los Angeles, two designers inhabit a modern bohemia.

In today’s busy world, we only have a few daily pleasures left and one of them is relaxing at home after work or on weekends in a pair of PJs. Take it from us—updating your old college t-shirt and fleece pants for loungewear pieces in silk will make you feel like you’re hanging out at a spa.

And since PJs became trendy a couple of years ago, designers have revamped the classic pajama set, largely keeping the oversize silhouette of the pants and shirt and updating the fabric and prints. Cotton was replaced by delicate silk in bold, hand printed patterns and now we have a pair of PJs that can be worn outside the bedroom as well.

Robes––let’s face it, a not very exciting item of clothing––also underwent a high-end makeover. The result? Out with the traditional all-around-the-house flannel robe and in with the silk kimono or hand-embroidered caftan––items that even make cameos in resort collections every season.
