Cats Pajama Pajamas

Leandra Medine | February 3, 2012

Following a brief but important look at the sort of mind boggling success stories of the U.S market, you can file Forever Lazy under weird voids we didn’t know existed–here’s an obligatory note about taking the innerwear as outerwear trend far away from your neighborhood tailgate and giving it a real try. Yes, it’s been done, several times, but what’s once more in the grand scheme of socially acceptable comfort?  Now, while the title at hand may read anti-climactic–there are no actual pajamas printed with cats wearing pajamas, there are stripes and polka dots.

And…that’s the cats pajamas! Behold, silk blue and white stripes, black and gold polka dots. These are special pants. I found them at a vintage shop in Venice Beach last month. They’re Christian Dior a la 1970 and embody the perfect length of high waist, leg slit, palazzo, and sheerness. I guess that’s the thing about vintage: in a world where ultimately nothing is new, taking a trend to its source will likely always render satisfying.

I call this one: happy as a clam. Do also note the two tone metallic flamingo loafers on foot. No detail went spared in an effort to role play. And with all the research manifesting about the side effects of spending too much time seated–here’s a photo to encapsulate what mankind may look like should we find ourselves in a world where standing desks become the norm:

Equipment blouse, vintage Christian Dior pants, Del Toro x Man Repeller loafers, DANNIJO necklace. 

Sleeping, not just for bedtime. Sleepwear, not just for sleep. See: The Row, Karen Walker, Thakoon, Proenza Schouler, Stubbs & Woottons’s entire business plan. It’s an organic chain reaction.
