Renowned for its British made luxury designs inspired by classic cinema’s most glamorous Femme Fatales, the diffusion line will offer customers the opportunity to indulge in the Gilda & Pearl aesthetic at a more accessible price point, with pieces available from £30 – £165.

The collection consists of pyjama sets, camisoles, shorts, kimonos, robes and slips in two exclusive prints, ‘Dolly’ which features vintage-inspired ladies in their boudoir against rose silk, ‘Kitty’; hand drawn cheetahs on ivory silk satin. The ‘Vivien’ range is a silk satin collection, with a delicate floral lace trim in a rich colour palette of jade, cassis and black.

Gilda & Pearl founder and designer Diane Houston said: “I am continually discovering new prints, silhouettes and textures to work with, and I’m delighted to be able to introduce some of these in the diffusion line, which offers a different, slightly more fun take on the Gida & Pearl aesthetic. It’s exciting to bring bold, beautiful new designs and new sensual fabrics to our offering.

“The collection is influenced by some of my favourite vintage nightwear styles and fabrics – for this line, I’ve chosen the prettiest pieces which also have a sense of joy while feeling timeless.”
