Raphaëlla Riboud’s pajamas, robes, nightshirts and dresses make one yearn to stay in. Presented at her stunning apartment overlooking the Palais-Royal, the sensual yet nonchalant collection did not feel out of context with couture week.
Instead of loungewear, Riboud prefers to call it private wear, connoting the personal indulgence of luxurious fabrics on the skin, including Moroccan silk crepe and silk velvet.
Striking prints included hand-drawn stripes inspired by antique ceramics, while a detailed floral motif on an inky backdrop made for dramatic pajamas and a short kimono.
A sumptuous silk felt jacket in a Prince of Wales check and silk pajama pants and jackets with peekaboo panels of Calais lace were chic enough to take to the streets.
