Eyes Wide Shut - Little Extravagance for Daily Dreams

Pajama party

Lacy nightgowns, robes and garçon designs that leap from the bedroom to the street...

I recall with nostalgia a little bit of how the holidays were when I was a child. Today I like to think of those summer nights where I met with my friends to enjoy a lively evening gatherings. Hit the streets with boys clothes informal pajama pants alternated with shirts, the girls wore dresses and tops nightgown loose-protected by the dark, while the heat led to us unaware of the affairs of the dress.

This season, it seems as if the designers had recovered gateway that spirit of "the party's pajamas" to commit to propose lacy nightgowns, robes and bed hopping with one aim: to move the sensuality of fashion bedroom to put it into asphalt. For example, Ann Demeulemeester proposes a wide striped suit jacket that takes the slack and fall of a pair of pajamas. The look of the designer intended to replace the traditional blazer batín garçon a broader pattern and steam. Prada also opts for the design pajamas, but its version includes prints based on the art-nouveau nymphs. Stella McCartney opts for a short nightgown dress with ruffles on the straps neckline, while Derek Lam takes the forms of the gown designed for her wrap dress.

Another way to interpret the same trend is to use the lace, crochet, tiptoe and drafts. Roberto Cavalli, for example, poses a long gown nightgown with crochet details. On the other hand, Christian Dior chooses a short dressing gown, lace and transparencies, and a red gown.
Enjoy a tendency to get women and provocative sensuality make its contribution to the endless summer nights.
