The pajama pants are here to stay. Passing seasons and printed fabric pants continue to triumph on the runways and in stores. A convenient concept, original, that for this autumn-winter 2012/2013 choose two versions, the exotic, with eastern influences, and English, with those pants gentlement stamped version. Which version do you prefer?
A British Sir pajamas
As if it were an English gentleman about to have tea at home, printed pants become male, combined with jackets, dressing gowns, oxford pants, coats and masculine cut. Of course Paul Smith gives us the English version and more sober, while Emilio Pucci brings something more cheerful, colorful, and luxurious with blue as a favorite color.
I loved the full version of Paul & Joe pajamas, jacket and trousers to pull over on a beautiful velvet jacket. I also love the version of those pants satin pajamas, deliciously sumptuous.
The American firm J. Crew loves patterned pants, and their versions are lively, but sober enough to be lucid in an office.
More examples will find them on the runways of Suno, Etro and Jonathan Saunders, and lowcost version at Zara or Massimo Dutti.
Japan and China, its exotic and floral prints, its rich palette of colors, are a strong trend this fall, but there will be stronger in 2013. They provide us with garments like the kimono, ideal to wear at home and gown or a night out.
These striking prints of Suno, contrasted with discordant patterns on top, are not to be worn by anyone. A version of pajamas so striking that you can stay home and be walking down the street, leaving it with her mouth open to all staff.
Not far behind the wild prints and mixtures Kenzo, anything but discreet.
Dries van Noten is one of those who loves everything oriental patterned pajamas and show us.
