Jenni Kayne does pajamas season after season. Based on the abundance of matching silk sets we saw during Resort, it looks as though the rest of fashion has caught up with her comfy aesthetic. "Pajama dressing always had a place in my collections," she said. "For pre-fall, I dressed it up with schoolboy accents and luxe fur pieces." For day, there were relaxed tartan suiting separates that would mix nicely with one of her cozy knits in a vintage quilting pattern. After-hours, Kayne's no-frills customer can dress up the look by keeping the pullover on and adding a trumpet-flare maxi skirt cut from cerulean-colored silk. To top it all off: a classic DB trench—in British khaki or crisp denim—with an optional extra lining and fox fur collar, plus the designer's ever-present and ever-chic d'Orsay flats, which she updated this time around in embossed croc leather. Kayne's proven formula for insouciant elegance continues to work well.
