Dan Single, one of the founding designers of cult denim brand Ksubi, and Bambi (real name, which no one uses: Stephanie) Northwood-Blyth, a model with Armani, Calvin Klein, and H&M campaigns under her belt, are such a peripatetic, insatiable couple that their Snapchat story (@houseof.cool) can leave you with whiplash. Constantly traveling, the pair can most often be found in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, and their hometown of Sydney, but even when you know what city they're in, it's pretty much impossible to pin them down. But between dropping tunes in DJ sets at some of the most exclusive clubs in the world, working on their expanding line of rosé, Pour Les Amours, and clocking up air miles, they've found the time for yet another venture: P.Jamé, a line of sleepwear in which, one imagines, very little sleeping will go on.
Just launched at Australian Fashion Week at an opulent presentation in a Sydney hotel penthouse complete with 1,000 candles, DJs sets by Tokyo DJ Mademoiselle Yulia and hometown heroes Flight Facilities, and featuring superstar Canadian model Winnie Harlow, P.Jamé is a bright, tongue-in-cheek, and—yes—extremely sexy addition to a market which could use a lot more of those kind of those adjectives.
P.Jamé consists of two collections, Baller and Boudoir, which is helpful to know when listening to the couple talk about it, because they do so quickly, with such enthusiasm, it's almost as if they are speaking a private language.
The Two Lines:
The Baller line comes in unisex, basketball-inspired fits and is meant for wearing inside and out, "to any house party, to stroll down the street to pick up your breakfast, to check yo'self in the daily news, or to pick up more drank," as they put it. Currently available in navy and with an all-over lip print, it also features smart details like tasseled waist ties and contrast trims.
Consisting of simple intimates in lightweight jersey and silk, the Boudoir collection is currently only available in black or white. It's all, however, "rated R, for ridiculously sexy."
We asked Single and Northwood-Blyth, who got married two years ago in Byron Bay, to interview each other via internet chat—she was in the makeup chair at a shoot in the British countryside and he was at their apartment in Bondi Beach. Here goes nothing:
BNB: So, Dan and Me are here together—sort of!
DS: Why sleepwear Bambi?
BNB: I think because we really felt a gap in the market. We wanted cool, comfy, sexy sleepwear, and couldn't find it. Enter P.Jamé! What do you wear to bed, Dan?
DS: You know boo, the Pjamé underpants! Bambi, are you BOUDOIR or a BALLER?
BNB: Hmmm, I like to mix the two. I love the Baller singlet with the cute panties! Dan, are you a BALLER or a BOUDOIR ?
DS: I think Baller, duh! Bambi, what do you find so sexy about sleepwear?
BNB: I think because it's what comes between you and the sheets and your loved one! I need to feel right, feel comfortable, feel soft, feel dreamy, feel sexy in it!
DS: And, before the silly questions, describe P.Jamé in 3 words…
BNB: SEXY, DESTRUCTIVE and DEAD COOL
