Chalmers Pyjamas is here to help you feel good about spending the day in your PJs. Created by Burleigh Heads-based artist Nick Chalmers, the label is all about embracing an indoor lifestyle as much as the outdoors, treasuring the home as your sanctuary. Available at David Jones, The Iconic and other select retailers, the collection of printed pyjamas merges fun and comfort, with styles blurring the line between sleepwear and daywear. It’s all carefully constructed for relaxation and switching off from our plugged-in lives. Time to embrace the great indoors.
The Jersey Company
The hunt for comfortable, good-looking bedding can be a long one. For Eve Quigley, the process took over a decade before she finally took matters into her own hands. In 2015, The Jersey Company launched with T-Sheets, a line of bedding made from 100 per cent cotton jersey. The natural fabric lets skin breathe and moves with your body as you sleep, perfect for sensitive skin. Jump online to select from a series of neutral tones or choose from existing ‘Shop the Look’ bundles. Shipping is free on orders over $100, and the team will also help with style advice.
We’ve already introduced you to Kesem Boy, so it’s time we got down to the nitty gritty. The linen label sources the highest quality European fabrics, dressing all cosy areas of your home with vibrant bedding, towels, throws and cushions. The aim is to make your living space both creative and inviting. All Kesem Boy bedding is made from 100 per cent cotton and is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certifed, meaning no nasty chemicals or dyes are used. Plus, it’s all machine washable, so you can expect a very good night’s sleep.
The Deiji Studios philosophy is simple: create pieces which fuse comfort and quality for your best sleep yet. Launched last year, the Byron Bay based label offers a selection of bedding and loungewear created from French linen. The fabric is made from the natural fibres of the flax plant and is stone washed for a soft feel. Flax linen is 30 per cent stronger than cotton, hypoallergenic, highly breathable and environmentally friendly, as it uses less water and chemicals to cultivate. Plus it looks beautiful in the bedroom.
pjMe knows how to break the rules when it comes to sleepwear. Melbourne sisters Veena and Mithra launched the label earlier this year, wanting to create pyjamas that don’t need covering up. With almost every item doubling as daywear, the range is especially handy for travel. Using 100 per cent natural fabrics like lightweight cotton and charmeuse silk, every garment allows freedom of movement while you sleep and great ventilation. Modern silhouettes and bold prints are simply the cherries on top. pjMe’s debut collection is available to explore online now.
When an artist starts a lifestyle brand to deliver creative, considered PJs, you know it’s going to be good. Quiet is all about getting away from busy lifestyles and living slow, conscious and creative lives. The loungewear is designed by Sydney artist Kareena Zerefos and acts as a counterpoint to the culture of fast, disposable fashion. It’s all made locally in Sydney, using natural and sustainable materials. The pieces are cosy enough to sleep in, yet nice enough to wear out of the house, too. It even has a dedicated vegan range, so you can sleep well and help the planet.
