Poplin combines natural fibres of silk and cotton with stylish options ranging from minimalist tones to classic stripes. You’re just as likely to find leopard trim as you are to find crisp white matching sets, and all of these pieces combine to create a line that is as luxurious as it is wearable.
Navy Silk Audrey Pyjamas
Designer Lucy Archibald signature look seems to be an offering of matching pyjama sets in white with varying trims and cuts. The Teal Trim Gatsby Pyjamas combine the best of indoor comfort with outdoor style with a wide pant pant leg, wide lapels and drawstring waist. The Navy Trim Bardot Pyjamas follow suit, only this time offering a cropped pant leg for the warmer spring air. The richest sensation of all, however, comes from the Leopard Silk Marilyn Pyjamas, with fabric in jet black and trim in animal print.
And for women who prefer not to wear bottoms, Archibald smartly includes single pieces in her collection, like the Teal Trim Gatsby Nightshirt, that are easy to slip on and a breeze to wear. You can preview the rest here: Nightwear at Avenue32.
The design principles for the line are inspired by Archibald’s vast experience in fashion, travel and the romantic crossroads where to two meet. With an education from Oxford already under her stylish belt, she later received a scholarship to study fashion at the Courtauld Institute. There, as she delved into the history of dress, she found herself inspired to translate some of the most lasting principles of style into a modern collection of her own.

Poplin undoubtedly also benefits from Archibald’s continuing engagement in the style world as it does from her previous experience.

As she forges ahead in the fashion world, her daring lifestyle and love of sophisticated style are sure to change women’s fashion while giving us a view of Archibald’s budding talent in the process.
