Designer: Praline Le Moult
Inspiration: The adventurous life of her great-grandfather Eugène Le Moult, a French naturalist and entomologist who specialized in butterflies, inspired Central Saint Martins graduate Praline Le Moult to launch her namesake collection of nightwear. Manufactured in the Jaipur region of India, the brand’s pajama sets and dressing gowns, available for men, women and children, are all crafted from cotton and printed by hand.
Key Styles: Since Eugène Le Moult was a star among Boy Scouts in the Fifties and Sixties, the designer decorated some of the pieces in her summer collection, such as playful pajamas, with sweet, multicolor patches celebrating Scouting’s youth associations. Roomy dressing gowns and pajama sets were also embellished with chic stripes in a color palette of gray, sky blue and red, all mixed with white.
