Buyers interested in the brand have the chance to see Sophie and Longstaff Longstaff in person at the upcoming Lingerie Edit in London from January 11 – 12, 2016 and is part of the trade show’s ‘Atelier’ event.
“We have created a bold collection of luxury loungewear that the seven sophisticated Longstaff Longstaff girls would have adored,” said the brand’s Sophie Barnard. “The wrap-around robe is so flattering that it’s tempting to slip on your best cocktail ring and a great pair of heels and sashay to the party.”

Barnard has used her distinctive, hand painted designs to produce some of the most beautiful silk robes, tunics and pyjamas available. Made in Britain, Longstaff Longstaff’s first loungewear collection is designed to be worn in bed, around the house, or as separates.
The joy of our collection is to be able to mix print with plain, print with print and long with short so buyers and customers decide which combinations work for them says the designer, adding, “Camisoles and chemises; long and short pyjamas; wrap-around robes and tunics that are as elegantly laid back as you can get.”

“Our very English name comes from Sophie’s grandmother whose maiden name was Longstaff. She was one of seven sisters all of whom not only had Longstaff as a surname but also as a middle name,” explains Barnard. “Days were spent out doors but the evenings were a time to dress up. Captivated and inspired by stories of elegant parties, wild adventures and handsome suitors, these luxurious robes and pyjamas reflect those elegant evenings.”
