Erica Tanov began her career as a sportswear designer and translated her knowledge of casual, functional clothing to her line of sleepwear in 1991.1 Many of Tanov’s designs are inspired by the simple, classic look of her grandfather’s silk pajamas.2 The loosely fitted top and pants of this sleepwear set are clearly based on the designer’s interest in men’s styles, but the sexy bandeau bra is purely feminine.
Tanov’s work is distinguished by its quality and attention to detail. The linen chosen for this ensemble is especially soft, and has been intricately woven in a diamond-weave pattern. The button loop closures are meticulously hand-stitched; Tanov often uses antique buttons from her personal collection.3
