Silk is the strongest natural fibre. It's hypoallergenic, dust mite-resistant, and allows skin to breathe. And it's also said to contain natural cellular albumen that helps speed up the metabolism of skin cells.
Unlike cotton, silk does not draw moisture away from your skin and hair, but encourages a proper moisture balance, while its extremely smooth and soft texture proves to be beneficial for those with sensitive skin conditions such as eczema.
Here are some of our favourite silk fashion and accessories:
1. Olivia Von Halle Silk Pajama
Inspired by 1920s lounge pyjamas worn by Coco Chanel, Olivia von Halle takes the traditional silk pyjamas and transforms them into something exceptional, blurring the lines between nightwear and ready-to-wear. This label is also a favourite of such celebrities as Rihanna, Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid.
