silk, l cm × w cm More details

In the 1920s fashionable young women wore pyjamas as loungewear. Around 1930 they also began to wear them when they went out to dine with friends. These pyjamas may have been the creation of the famous French fashion designer Gabriëlle Chanel. A label is sewn into the left trouser leg on which is written: ‘Pyjama Abdulah, Chanel.’
