Derek Rose: Luxury Sleepwear Gifts Worth Getting Out Of Bed For
Port highlights the premium Derek Rose loungewear and pyjama gifts at the top of the wish list for Christmas 2019.
The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful - or, failing the absence of an open hearth, the warmth and comfort of our bed will have to do. Surely, there are few things as enticing on a cold winter’s morning than our sleeping quarters, as we lie cocooned in our duvets contemplating the myriad ways to avoid having to press our feet onto a cold, hard floor. There is something joyful about the process of bedtime in winter, with bedding down being our preferred method to enjoy this segment of the year. So much so that we’re secretly delighted the moment our WhatsApp notifications flash with a cancellation, and we can take joy in getting ready for bed once again.
But the art of bed time is not solely to sleep - it is to find pleasure in the prelude that leads us to our slumber and, on a rare day-off or weekend, the savoured moments that linger after too. To do this, there needs to be an element of decadence and luxury - and you’re not going to find that in a pair of old sweats, are you?
Instead, you’ll need to seek out elegant loungewear. At its best, good loungewear takes the form of a pair of pyjamas and a dressing gown, finished with slippers that are the footwear equivalent of walking on air. It should all feel as comfortable as joggers, but as elegant as a good suit or a fine silk blouse. In our opinion, there’s only one place to find this winning combination for both men and women, and that is Derek Rose.

Derek Rose is a natural choice for a flattering, contemporary-cut pyjama set in flannel, silk satin or rich cotton, that’s infinitely more luxurious than traditional boxy fit styles. Whether in a simple colour-rich design or emblazoned with print, these styles are sharp enough that you could wear a shirt during the day, if the mood - or an unexpected guest at the door - should take you.
For those who favour a little less through the night, a sensual chemise or airy nightshirt should appeal. For men, perhaps a t-shirt and lounge trouser - just pair with a handmade silk or cotton nightgown for a decadent morning-after routine. All finished with a handmade sheepskin slipper, of course. This is sleepwear so good that you may find yourself getting up a little earlier just to enjoy a leisurely breakfast and a few extra moments to, well, lounge around.
But luxury loungewear is a pleasure designed to be shared around, particularly at this time of year. Whether it’s a cashmere sweater, sleep accessories or a bespoke monogrammed pyjama set, Derek Rose make an ideal gifting destination when buying for partners, parents and friends.
Below, the Port team highlight the Derek Rose loungewear, pyjamas and sleep accoutrement at the top of their gift lists this festive season.
