F.R.S. for restless sleepers

With F.R.S., the pyjama is released from the realm of the strictly private and its specifically nocturnal purpose, transforming itself into an attitude comprising lightweight fabrics that look good anywhere

F.R.S. is the monogram of Francesca Ruffini, standing for “For Restless Sleepers”.
The creative itinerary on the theme of the pajama is about a fun new interpretation, instead of referring to the hackneyed garment we know. The vision F.R.S has of the pajama draws near to the origins of this emblematic garment from the East and has always been a multitasking garment, blurring its ancestral meaning with the more perplexing modernity, reinventing that bizarre two-fold combination of practicality and poetry. A “voyage autour d’une chamber” An overlapping of fluid patterns of the ’50s, floral moods and vaguely optical ’70s geometrics, clashing timbres and overlapping patterns and textures.

The fabrics used are all made exclusively for F.R.S, and come from the finest production and printing ateliers of Como, all repositories of a unique heritage. The silk combined with the great motif embrace an extraordinary variety of frame weaving types, exploring a range of flexible and variable weights, prints and consistencies. F.R.S. ideally represents the perfect, harmonious fusion between the world and the outdoor, tackled in an equally nonchalant manner.
