WinterSilks has been importing the finest silk fabrics and shaping them into luxurious undergarments, sleepwear, loungewear and sweaters since 1981. Perusing their fabulous Fall 2008 collection, two sumptuous pieces jump off the page. A beautiful silk cotton interlock pajama set in pretty Cameo Pink and a Natural coloured short sleeved gown embellished in Tonal Embroidery.
A delicate ensemble, the pink pajama set is very stylish and elegant while appearing super comfy. Machine washable, made of seventy-five percent silk and twenty-five percent cotton, the sleeveless top is adorned with a lovely lace medallion on the front and an intricate array of lace detailing extending from the shoulders down the back of the top. Both front and back are sexy v-necklines. Plain elastic waistband pants are finished off with a small side slit at the bottom of each pant leg complemented by a frilly hem giving the pants are very feminine appearance.
Although, the above knee length sleep gown is very basic, the triangle shape and straight line embroidery along the hem makes this casual dress quite pretty. The structured, round, braided neckline adds to the femininity of the piece. Made from one hundred percent pure spunsilk, this sweet dress is warm, absorbent and pliable, all excellent fabric qualities for sleeping garments.
In addition to the silk cotton and spunsilk jersey, WinterSilks designs their fashionable garments from silk charmeuse, silk modal, and silk filament. Their silk modal camisoles are very soft and lightweight and are perfect for layering in cooler weather, ideal for work out sessions, and are luxurious enough to wear with a dressy outfit.
The company’s Snowflake Guide is a useful resource when purchasing items from WinterSilks as it categorizes the warmth of the fabrics and garments into Warm, Warmer and Warmest. One last unique characteristic of the brand’s silk garments is that many are machine washable.
