We’ve been ignoring this day for weeks but at the moment there’s no more escaping… Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching. Hearts everywhere, sweet love in the shape of chocolates and cookies, huge bouquets of flowers in red, a new Fifty Shades movie. It isn’t exactly the most creative day of the year. Thanks Goddess Venus that there’s one label saving us from all this bitter sweet commercial actions: & Other Stories. They just launched a capsule collection called “Rêve Éveillé”, French for daydream, which basically is an ode to friendship. So single ladies, no worries, there are options! (Or husbands / boyfriends / girlfriends, if you do want to want to buy a decent gift… this is your chance.)
Patricia Manfield & Renata Di Pace
Presenting to you this cosy sleep – and daywear collection are musician Patricia Manfield and her manager / best friend Renata Di Pace. Since they’re both traveling all the time, these multifunctional pieces come in handy. On a 12 hour flight you don’t want to wear a skinny jeans but a silk pair of loose trousers instead. Their essential tip on turning sleepwear into daywear? Wear it with a pair of sneakers, a fancy coat, hat and loads of jewelry.
No more embarrassing encounters with the mail(wo)man
We’ve all been there, a ringing doorbell and not being decent enough to go downstairs. Or deciding that it was a good idea to head to the bakery in old PJ’s on a busy Sunday… (ok, that might have just been us). These embarrassing moments will all belong to the past with these easy-to-wear ensembles in silk and tencel. Our personal favorites? The yellow trousers with matching shirt, the burgundy turban and black slippers with pom poms.
The collection is available in all & Other Stories shops and online.
