Night and day
You launched the brand Margherita on Yoox.com in March 2015. When did you decide to team up on this latest collaboration? — This new project – a very special one – emerged quite naturally. Yoox and I have enjoyed a close collaboration for years. Hence the launch of my collection Margherita Kids exclusively on their website. This collection of pyjamas is called “Mummy and Me”. What was the idea behind it? — I drew my inspiration from mixed models that can be worn in any season, even during the day, and not only at bedtime. I chose natural fabrics: cottons, jerseys, suitable for children’s sensitive skin, and soft enough to feel as if they are wrapped up in a cocoon. Is it really a range that can be worn round the clock? — I’ve always imagined being with my children round the clock, from the time they wake up to the time they go to bed, and I liked the idea of designing pyjamas for mothers identical to those worn by their children. The cotton jersey pyjamas are ideal for wearing on a longdistance flight or after the end-of-the-year gastronomic marathon… The cotton gauze tunic, another of my favourite designs, can be worn over a swimsuit for a stylish day at the beach. For dressier occasions, I adore wearing the pair of cotton pyjamas, with chunky earrings and bejewelled sandals.
