Lisa Cheng brings Olivia von Halle's silk pyjamas to Sheer


Shanghai-born and Hong Kong-based, Vivian Chen coordinates the Cityseen column. She reckons the best way to learn about the city she loves is by writing about it. Besides taking on party-hopping duties for CitySeen and discovering romance for the Weddings column, she also enjoys writing about fashion, travel and other fun. A good quote gives her a buzz as does a stretch on the yoga mat.

If you are looking for the perfect outfit for a pyjama party or a sleepover on a Gossip Girl theme, it might be a good idea to check with Lisa Cheng of Sheer - a lingerie boutique in Central.

Cheng has brought to Hong Kong British designer Olivia von Halle's eponymous brand of silk pyjamas. The designer flew in for the launch on Friday at the boutique.

"I had been searching for silk pyjamas for a long time but couldn't find any that lived up to my expectations - high quality, a feminine shape, tailored and fashionable," Cheng said.

That was until she found Von Halle's designs at a Paris trade show this year. The brand, launched in September last year, caught Cheng's eye.

Von Halle's designs are inspired by the lounge wear of fashion designer Coco Chanel.

Cheng described her ideal PJ party: "The formula would be my best friends plus bottles of Prosecco and great music. Silk pyjamas are perfect for lounging around fabulously with your best pals and just enjoying great girly talk all night."

The classic silk pyjamas can cost as much as HK$3,550.
