This weekend we escaped to Cornwall for a weekend in a cottage, thoughtfully leant as a wedding present. Log fires, Jilly Cooper, a brisk walk along the cliffs followed by the perfect cream tea, rain and then rainbows, delicious seafood for supper at Rick Stein and curling up in my POPLIN PJs....

We have just shot, with Agnes Lloyd Platt, our new collection of amazing POPLIN silk and chambray PJs at the incredible Houghton Hall in Norfolk. I had to keep pinching myself while we were shooting there- it is so beautiful and otherworldly. Here's a sneak peek of what's to follow...

Pillow Talk: Nura Khan

Nura wears POPLIN Indochine Silk PJs 

Not only is stylist Nura Khan incredibly chic, she's also hilarious with the most infectious laugh around. Inbetween lounging in Italian palazzos (above) we caught up for a little pillow talk... 

POPLIN designs are inspired by the style of iconic women, often from the '50s an '60s like Bardot and Ingrid Bergman, as well as contemporary icons like Iris Apfel. If you could dip into anyone's wardrobe, past or present, whose would you choose? 
I would love to have a rummage through Chanel's wardrobe. Black and white, stripes, pearls- the dream! Also, the swans of the 60s- Marella Agnelli, Gloria Guinness, Babe Paley- their style was so modern, Simple, comfortable but always chic. The best. 

What's on your wishlist from POPLIN ?
I'm currently lusting after the Bardot nightshirt and the Audrey Pyjamas. But really I want absolutely everything! Help. 

We're all about the beauty sleep at POPLIN... Are you an owl or a lark? Late sleeper? Early riser? 
An owl I'm afraid. Double help. 

Favourite thing to... 
- Cook in your pyjamas? 
Scrambled eggs with butter, to be cooked on a very low heat stirring constantly. It's the best birthday breakfast. 
- Read in your pyjamas? 
Anything about the Mitford sisters or Diana Vreeland. I'm an addict! 
- Listen to you in your pyjamas? 
Some good gossip! Ideally over breakfast with girlfriends, the morning after a great party. 

Best hotel bed you've ever slept in? 
Palazzo Margherita in Bari, Italy. Huge and beautiful.

Dream destination? 
Too many! Paris, Big Sur, Rajasthan, next stop Brazil.

Top travel essentials you always pack? 
POPLIN Indochine Silk Pyjamas, to make every bed glamorous.

We're really delighted to have our first Australian stockist in Girl & Graaf

Their website is a beautifully curated haven of excellent taste! A mix of lovely homewares, accessories- including the most useful shoes from my friend Penelope Chilvers, and POPLIN pjs to wear while relaxing in your newly beautified home. 

These lovely images come from Girl &Graaf's brand new campaign. We're very jealous of that beautiful light here in sun-starved London! In the meantime, we're planning to steal some sunshine on a quick holiday and will definitely be packing our POPLIN Daisy Cross Back Dress. What are your Spring plans?

Two pictures of Fanny Boucher, my fellow Indophile friend in her POPLIN Indochine Silk PJ shirt, two days in a row! 

Hope you enjoy them us as much as we have. It's so inspiring to see how Fanny wears her POPLIN pieces out and about in Bombay. She's moving to Paris very soon so we can't wait to see how she styles her Indochine PJs there.

We love seeing pictures of our customers wearing their POPLIN purchases- it can be truly inspiring.

I first had the idea for POPLIN while working as a freelance writer in India, and wanting chic yet comfortable clothes to work from home in. I still find stylish spaces that bridge the gap between private and working functions, really inspiring. This is Lee Radziwiłł at her desk in Paris. 

A truly beautiful POPLIN dress, is just as beautiful from the back... 

... as it is from the front!

Indochine PJs: The Ultimate Loungewear


Indochine Classic Silk PJs 

These are quite simply the ultimate silk PJs, in the most beautiful silk we could find and with a glamorous Indochine print. Mine already feel like a loyal wardrobe classic, travelling with me for a romantic trip to Paris, and slipped into in the Scottish Highlands for after-dinner drinks with friends on a Hogmany holiday. Oh the places we'll go...

Let's Go Fly a Kite







A few weeks ago my cotton supplier, Sanjay, whose family business provides POPLIN with the most beautiful Indian cottons, invited me to come and celebrate the Gujurati kite festival with his family. Little paper kites are launched into the sky on spectacular lengths of bright pink string. They flutter vertigo-high into the endless blue and are then artfully guided to swoop down and cut kites flown from neighbouring buildings out of the sky, amidst delighted whoops and cheers.
