Openwork cotton lace accents the robes and sleepshirts in the spring collection of Periphery Loungewear Inc., New York. The company works in cotton, blended and acrylic knits as well as woven cotton and cotton and Lycra spandex fabrics to produce leisure and lounging apparel that wholesales for $30 to $72. "We will be emphasizing relaxed silhouettes in fabrics with texture interest," notes Judy Lewis, merchandise director. "Tops will be shorter, with side slits, and pants will be mid-full--not narrow but not palazzo, either." The firm expects to chalk up $10 million in sales this year, an 18 percent gain over 1993. Nominated for a Dallas Fashion Award once before in 1987, this is Periphery's first DFA trophy.
