Pajamas Invade Daytime
Casual Fridays might be doomed to be a long and lazy weekend. You can thank Julian Schnabel, as he’s ushered in pajamas as the new sleeper fashion wear. Dudes are wearing Hef silks in public! This week, designers Phillip Lim, Michael Bastian, and Tim Hamilton will unveil pajama-inspired clothes meant to be worn in broad daylight. (Last year, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Giorgio Armani dipped into the same genre.) Tyler Thoreson of Men’s Style says, “If you really wanted to deconstruct it, you could say buried in there is some kind of commentary on our overworked, sleep-starved culture.” But even then, he says he can’t envision overworked, sleep-starved professionals wearing pajamas out in public.
