Remember when we were all wearing our pyjamas as evening wear last year? Well this winter, our PJs are heading back to bed. Online retailer Avenue 32 has joined forces with Poplin to create a pair of pyjamas inspired by Tchaikovsky’s the Nutcracker. Poplin was launched by journalist Lucy Archibald in 2010 when, working from her home in India, she couldn’t find any suitable loungewear. So she created handprinted, charismatically old-fashioned collections that are reminiscent of the kind of pyjamas gentlemen would have traded their nightshirt for. For Poplin’s Christmas pair, we are taken to the ballet with the Nutcracker print across a button-down set that would make J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan characters proud. These are the only things we want to be slinking around in on Christmas morning.
