Ebb & Flow: Tea and Toast

By Jo Phillips


There is nothing like waking up with breakfast in bed, the warmth of tea, the fresh bed linen and the comfort of pyjamas. On the catwalks we have regularly seen the two genders being blurred with androgynous models and mannish silhouettes like the big coat or the tuxedo jacket; however there is one men’s garment that never goes out of trend, whether you are the most dedicated tomboy or the girliest of girls, we have all worn a men’s pyjamas set in cotton, silk, stripped or simply “borrowed” from our partner. Cent selects below our favourite choices of the most staple androgynous garment in the history of fashion.


This autumn, TOAST celebrate their 15th anniversary with a retrospective collection: a handful of very limited edition pieces, inspired by the TOAST archives or freshly conceived, using either Indian artisanal or British fabrics and manufacture. We couldn’t help but fall in love with the pair of pyjamas in super-light Dacca muslin with muga silk trim, simply perfect for the winter nights ahead.



2.Agent Provocateur

None other than Agent Provocateur could turn the traditional silk men’s pyjamas into the most luxurious women’s nightwear. With a nod to twenties fashion, the AP initials embroidered on the belt and available in black or pink silk, the androgynous becomes entirely feminine and sultry.



Japanese brand Muji is ideal for everyday practical design. This 100% cotton double gauze pyjamas are perfect for a lazy Sunday morning, while the polka dot pattern gives a cute and girly twist to the set.
