Heading Outside for Summer
Nightshirts, pyjama sets, dresses and more contemporary sleepwear for the summer months
Welcome to Pre Fall 2021, a season of loungewear inspired by garden parties, alfresco picnics and everything else we love about a summer spent outdoors.
A cheerful collection designed to be worn inside and out, Pre Fall 2021 is all about nightshirts, pyjama sets, house dresses and kaftans in breezy, breathable fabrics perfect for the balmy summer months. We’ve introduced fun new shapes such as a summery dress with a gathered sleeve and neckline and a new camisole and shorts set, as well as relaunched some of our founder’s favourites from the archives.
GOOD SLEEPER STYLE: GATHERED NECK DETAILS
The Gathered Neck Dress is a new house dress or nightie from The Sleep Shirt. This simple, cotton, A-line nightgown falls just below the knee, with full length sleeves and a tie up keyhole neckline. The gathered pleating around the neckline adds a feminine flare and gives the nightie its name. Available in our selection of lightweight linens and cottons, this dress is ideal for warmer weather over a swimsuit or as dressed up for a garden party.
And because we love the gathered neckline detail so much, we’ve also created a Gathered Neck Top, with a hem that falls just above the hip. It pairs beautifully at home with our best selling lounge pant or new classic short, but looks just as stylish out and about with jeans or a skirt.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: THE BEST COTTON NIGHTIES
After receiving overwhelmingly popular feedback from customers (and long waiting lists), we decided to include three re-issued shapes in our Pre Fall 2021 collection. These were highly popular the first time round, and include the Oversized Kaftan, Flared Sleep Shirt and Cuffed Sleeve Shirt.
True to its name, the Oversized Kaftan is a roomy piece that works equally well as a loungewear piece as it does over a bathing suit. The Flared Sleep Shirt is a comfortable flared shirt dress with a high low hem, side pockets and a three-quarter length sleeve; it’s a flattering piece that can easily be worn as a dress or to bed. The Cuffed Sleep Shirt is a button down top with cuffed short sleeves and a stand-up collar and is equal parts pyjama top and WFH shirt.
This season, we’ve also redesigned our classic camisole and shorts set to offer something more streamlined and modern. The Classic Camisole has a racerback cut, with spaghetti straps and a slight V-shaped neckline. It pairs with the Classic Short, a pair of short sleep shorts with a drawing front waist and elastic back.
FLORALS AND NICE PJS FOR PRE-FALL…
This season’s fashion pattern is the 100% cotton Summer Floral Print, one of our first multicoloured florals and a print that’s reminiscent of vintage teacups, with its red, pink, blue and yellow tones. The collection also includes two additional bolds pattern: Summer Plaid, which is a whimsical, 100% cotton picnic-inspired plaid in shades of blue, pink and white, and the Giant Blue Stripe, a 55% linen 45% cotton blend that features a thick nautical blue stripe on a white base.
LOVE LOUNGEWEAR, LOVE LINEN
Finally, the Pre Fall collection includes three new 100% linens: Sand Linen, Raspberry Pink Linen, and the Pale Blue Linen Stripe, which has a woven vertical blue and white stripe. Seersuckers also continue to be a customer favourite, so this season, we’ve launched Ombre Seersucker, a medium weight, crisp 100% cotton featuring skinny stripes in a gradient of blues on a white base.
As with every collection, our best selling shapes and these new designs are available in a variety of fabrics, including the classics – Blue Oxford Stripe, Pink Oxford Stripe, White Linen and Black Linen – as well as the returning favourites: Washed White Poplin, Silver Blue Double Gauze and Milano Featherweight Blend. Enjoy.
