Lounge Wizards

blog-loungewear-karla-01.jpg All those pajama-esque ensembles you saw on the fall runways need not be relegated to the bedroom. Piamita—the brainchild of designer Cecilia de Sola and Karla ­Martinez, W’s Fashion Market and ­Accessories Director—was fueled by the quest for casual pieces that are at once chic and comfortable. (A third partner, ­Luiza Leitao, focuses on production.) “The idea at first was to find the perfect pajama,” says de Sola. “Then it ­developed into loungewear, which is usually a ­little scruffy.” There’s nothing schlumpy about Piamita’s debut resort collection, which runs the gamut from the slouchy Talitha ­harem pant to the Lauren column dress—either of which could easily be paired with heels for late-night cocktails. Everything is done in silk charmeuse, crepe de chine, and stretch georgette, in solids or such prints as Tangato/Tangatito, an abstract motif inspired by de Sola’s 13-year-old cat; or Abanico, a riff on the fans used by the designers’ grandmothers to stay cool (barneys.com; $75–$500).
