''Though Olivia von Halle is best known for her luxurious loungewear – notably slinky silk sets that seem to have snuck in from a more glamorous era than the one we’re living in – von Halle, both the brand and the woman, are all about the party. It’s fitting, then, that the idea to launch a label specialising in fine nightwear was first floated at an afterparty in the designer's Shanghai apartment. Fast forward 10 years and though she still likes to close a night with guests back at her townhouse – decked out in signature OvH pyjamas, with a G&T in hand, generally embodying the spirit of a Fitzgerald character – Olivia von Halle is stepping out of the boudoir.
Olivia von Halle’s Silk Road-produced collections now include a smattering of evening wear options – the starting point? Silk slip dresses originally designed for bed, of course. So, with nightwear this good, what gets Olivia von Halle out of bed? With party season in full swing, we thought it high time we found out.''
