During the long days and nights of self isolation, some of you maybe finding yourself working from home, where you have/want to keep up one’s dapper persona. Others of you maybe be finding you have more time on your hands and have no desire to sink into a continuous state of slabbing out while watching continuous episodes of Friends. Nonetheless all of us share that one often finds solace in the immersive worlds of fiction and film.
As the year advances, the evening light starts to return, but temperatures remain cool. Perfect pyjama weather, one might say. As we emerge into Spring, Turnbull’s design team drew from this time, and upon inspiration found in the playful cinematic style of Wes Anderson, to bring a pop of colour to your night time wardrobe.
The resultant collection is a bold, playful and colourful mish mash of traditional patterns in Italian woven cotton. Kelly green gingham and yellow tattersall feature amongst bold pinks and blues. Each piece featuring a piping that off- sets the colours as a contrasting detail. Inspired by the characters and creativity of Wes Anderson’s films, and from the colourful requests of Turnbull’s customers from over the years, this capsule is owed to them.
The collection introduces six new pyjamas, all in bold, playful patterns and colours. Realised in a more contemporary fit and styling compared to Turnbull’s traditionally loose-fitting PJs, this new style introduces a revere collar, pocket details and a waistband with subtle stretch, making them exceedingly comfortable, and stylish. The pyjamas are accompanied by two colourful gowns and a small selection of boxer shorts, all of which are made in England.
Turnbull and Asser have made pyjamas, nightshirts, gowns and boxers for decades – crafted by the same skilled hands that produce their renowned shirts in our factory in Gloucester. With that level of care and attention going in to each piece, Turnbull’s nightwear continues to earn a loyal customer. All of the colourful cottons have been added to their Made to Measure and Bespoke books, so if you prefer to realise these cloths as shirts rather than nightwear, the option is there.
