For the past 15 years Andrea Tan and Joen King have worked together designing beautiful things that enhance living. Starting out in footwear under the name Andrea and Joen, the pair moved into lifestyle and interiors. In 2015 they released a line of luxury French linen sheets and quilts. This year the duo took it a step further – linen bedwear.
“Andrea & Joen Loungewear was a natural progression from our bed linen and an offering we’ve personally yearned for,” says Tan. “The concept of our loungewear is modern, comfortable pieces that are practical and look effortless on.”
The luxurious range of bedwear comes in wintery charcoals and silvers with an emphasis on simple blocks of colour and high-quality fabrics. “Each design from the range can be worn at home lounging and sleeping, and even out.” The Evie collection has a mix of robes, separates and shirtdresses. The Valentine collection is slightly dressier, with piping details in shades of grey.
The use of 100 per cent French linen is at the core of the brand. “We’ve developed a mix of different colour strands weaved into each other. Much like a marle effect, it has beautiful texture and tones running through it.”
Looking at the range of separates and robes makes you think its time you ditched the hole-ridden band tee you’ve been wearing to bed for the past five years and treat yourself to a touch of French linen.
