Fall For Restless Sleepers

For Restless Sleepers F'17 Prima Darling

Way back in February, Francesca Ruffini presented her fifth For Restless Sleepers collection. Now that the summer is winding down I thought this is the perfect time to take another look at the fall presentation. For fall Ruffini continues to explore glamour and comfort within the theme of ultra elegant loungewear. This time around, siting inspiration from Russian literature, Ruffini included Italian silk velvet, adding another layer of luxury to the existing silk prints.

The Lake Como region, where Ruffini lives and works, is world famous for silk fabrics and high quality printing. Ruffini takes full advantage of this, working closely with the regions fabric mills. Her richly hued prints and luxurious fabrics are of the highest quality. The clothes themselves harken back to a more genteel time while offering a thoroughly new way to dress, up or down, casual yet refined classics that will live way beyond the current trend for pajama dressing.

Though the prices for fall are on the high side, the quality and versatility of each piece make it a sound investment. For Restless Sleepers is the kind of collection I would like to buy one or two pieces from each season. I’ve learned to keep my eye out on line for FRS pieces marked down. The styles are classic enough and always covetable, so not to worry that it will be obsolete in a season or two. I use Lyst as a resource to find deals for particular brands. The extensive site provides all the retail outlets on line for a brand or designer, complete with prices and links to purchase. You can even sign up for sales alerts. I also recommend the For Restless Sleepers web site to see the full breadth and aesthetic of the collection.

    The colours and prints are beautiful, as is the dog.
    I wonder if the fabrics and garments are made in Italy? There’s no information about this on the website.

    • Hi Jan,

      The fabrics are all from the beautiful Lake Como region of Italy. I think the clothes are made in Italy as well but I’ll have to double check and get back to you. Jolain

        Thanks Jolain.

    • Hi Jan,

      As Italy has the very civilized custom of closing for the month of August, I just received a response from FRS. They do produce all the fabrics and make all the garments in Italy particularly the Lake Como region which is well known for high quality.

    Beautiful pieces that, as you state, will not be obsolete in a year. My kind of investment items. Thank you for the reference to Lyst. I will use this going forward.

    • Hi Susan,

      Lyst is a great resource, I found a pair of FRS pajama pants, that I love, through Lyst at 40% off!
