Archive by The Sleep Shirt is a limited edition collection created to commemorate the 10th anniversary of The Sleep Shirt. Founded by Central Saint Martins alumni Alexandra Suhner Isenberg in 2012, the brand launched with a single nightshirt whose design was based on a classic 19th century men’s chemise – the most comfortable and stylish thing she had ever slept in. Classic, timeless and beautiful, the Archive Collection reflects what The Sleep Shirt represents: well-made garments that stand the test of time. Read more about the collection.
The floor-length linen Delphine Dress is our most ambitious piece in our Archive Collection. Inspired by French priests' dresses (Aube de prêtre), this beautiful piece features a mid-weight European linen and 100% GOTS certified organic cotton lace trims. It's the perfect vacation caftan, elegant sleepwear piece or even a special occasion dress, the materials, quality and cut are sure to impress. We sourced a soft, textured linen from Portugal that feels heavy and rich, and matched a soft, white organic cotton lace from a small family-run lace maker in Germany with stunning results.
