Luxurious Lingerie from Australia's Victoria & James Sleepwear
Australian designer Victoria Dwyer has launched a new line of luxurious sleepwear under a new label called Victoria & James Sleepwear.
"With Victoria & James Sleepwear I wanted to create a range that was elegant, comfortable and sensual," says Dwyer. "Sheer, delicate natural fibers were important in creating sleepwear that you would want to wear every night and not just on special occasions."
Dwyer was inspired to launch the range after a recent world tour when even in Europe she found it impossible to find luxury sleepwear. Victoria & James Sleepwear features a range of night dresses, robes and pajama suits that are "the ultimate in bedtime pleasure" according to the company. "I'm the sort of person who if I can't find something I make it myself," says Dwyer. "I enjoy design and creating beautiful things."
Designs are sensual rather than overtly sexy, with fabrics being exquisitely soft and delicate. The line includes beautiful sheer cotton voiles and hand-printed silks edged with delicate French Solstiss lace in a palette of white and gentle pastels. The cut of each garment is flattering to every type of figure and the finish, with perfect French seams, hand-applied lace and ribbon, and even Swarovski crystal buttons, bearing all the hallmarks of a true luxury brand.
"For me, and for so many women who appreciate beautiful things, the essence of a luxury item is in the finishing touches," says Dwyer. "That's why I have chosen to trim these beautiful fabrics in special Guipure laces which I sourced from France and Switzerland. Even the color-fast ribbons have been carefully selected from the best European houses and threaded by hand."
Victoria & James Sleepwear is only creating a limited number of each item, says Dwyer, "making them very special and quite individual."

The exquisite collection of nightgowns, pajamas and robes range in price from AUD $380 ($350 USD) to $780 AUD ($718 USD).
