Parachute and A.L.C. Just Released a Capsule Collection Full of Chic Sleepwear
Reaching peak bedroom coziness isn’t simply a matter of finding a super-plush mattress, snagging a super-luxe comforter, and snuggling up in some super-soft bed sheets. These things definitely matter, but your PJs do too. After all, the comfiest bed in the world is no match for pajamas that are itchy, scratchy, or otherwise uncomfortable.
Thankfully, two of your favorite brands fully understand this. Your go-to home essentials hub, Parachute, just announced a collaborative capsule collection with ready-to-wear label A.L.C.
and we couldn't be more excited. So, what, exactly, is that capsule collection full of? Seriously cozy sleepwear.
Every item in the limited-edition line is crafted entirely from silk—a textile that’s as sleek as it is snuggly. (And it’s very snuggly.)
The A.L.C. for Parachute collection is replete with chic sleepwear must-haves. An embroidered robe. A lush mask. Sets of decidedly elegant pajamas. Not only can you catch those Zs you’ve been dreaming of, but you can do so while looking glamorous to boot. (If this doesn’t give new meaning to the phrase “beauty sleep,” we’re not sure what does.)
As of today, the entire collection is available in Parachute and A.L.C.’s brick-and-mortar stores. It’s also available online, so you can shop your new favorite sleepwear from the comfort of—you guessed it—your very own bed.

A.L.C. for ParachuteEmbroidered Silk Robe$389
Robes are always a good idea. And this sleek black number—which comes complete with pockets and a delicate white bow—is no exception. Be sure not to miss the back of the robe, either.

A.L.C. for ParachuteSilk Pillowcase Set$189-199
OK, we know we called this a sleepwear collection, but there are a few pillowcases on offer, too. Choose between crisp white and soft blush, and prepare for the silky sleep of a lifetime.
A.L.C. for ParachuteSilk Pajama Set, Blush$299
Any fan of sophisticated sleepwear will surely fall in love with this sleek set. While the blush silk drips with subtle elegance, the black details render the PJs bold and contemporary.

Parachute Launches Its Debut Sleepwear Collection
Parachute sleepwear and loungewear
Longtime favorite home textiles brand Parachute wants to clothe your body as well as your bed and bath. Since its 2014 launch, founder Ariel Kaye has been quickly taking over the home essentials market offering linens and floor coverings for every room in your house with her laid-back California-based lifestyle brand.
And this holiday, the company has launched an all-cotton, all natural sleepwear collection featuring two unisex styles from XS through XL: a gauze pajama set ($149) and gauze sleepshirt ($99) in a calming, complementary palette of three neutral hues (olive, light gray and dark gray).
The pajama set includes a long-sleeve button-down top and drawstring pants with a tapered elastic hem for a slouchy Netflix and chill look. The sleepshirt has a henley-front top and falls above the knee just where it should (you could totally walk the dog while wearing it and get away with people thinking it’s a dress).
Both are soft and feel well-worn straight the box and are great gifts to give to yourself and your loved ones this holiday season. We talked to Parachute’s CEO Ariel Kaye to find out how she went from bath and bed to body.

What fabrics were used for the sleepwear and how are they different from those used in your other collections?
“All the pieces are made from a gently textured cotton gauze. It’s a different material from our bedding but as comfortable and soft as a well-loved sheet set. We made sure the fabric would provide the ideal texture for sleeping or lounging–it’s cozy and lightweight.
our bedding, our gauze sleepwear is Oeko-Tex certified, meaning that these items surpass the highest safety and environmental protection standards, and are free of harmful chemicals and toxins.
We’ve introduced a few gauze pieces into our assortment over the past year and the feedback has been phenomenal–it’s a fabric we are loving.”

What made you launch this category? Did you feel there was a void in the sleepwear market?

We’re in the business of providing the ultimate sleep experience and pajamas are a crucial component to getting a good night’s rest.
We are always looking to play a role in the everyday routines of our customers–sleepwear is just one more way for us to be a part of their home.”
How do you personally to wear these pieces? Could they even be worn outside the home?
“The pajamas are easy to mix and match–just the entire Parachute assortment. While they are cozy on their own, I’ve also paired the sleepshirt with leggings and the PJ pants with a tank–the possibilities are endless! We encourage being comfortable at all times, and these have been ideal for sleeping as well as lounging around on a relaxing Sunday.”

7 best bedding sets
In today’s world of endless choices, stresses and demands, your bedroom is something of a safe haven. A place you go to recharge and escape the outside world – or at least try.
Too many of us get by on poor quality sleep and a crucial factor you may be forgetting is the bedding you’re using.
You’re going to spend a third of your life sleeping, so why not make sure you get the best rest possible?
There are a few important aspects to consider when choosing your bedding: thread count, fabric, and aesthetics.
A common mistake is equating high thread-count with quality, but many brands will try to trick you here. Thread-count refers to the number of threads used vertically and horizontally per square inch of fabric, with a higher count meant to increase softness and density.
However, many manufacturers use multi-ply threads in order to strengthen weaker cotton and then include each ply in the final count; a 250 thread-count of 3-ply fibers can masquerade as 750, while still feeling rough on your skin. To avoid this, prioritise the quality of the fiber above the count.
(We’ve done this work for you when making our selections).
When it comes to fabric, it’s all about personal preference. Your most common options are percale cotton; sateen cotton; linen, and microfiber. Percale has the same number of horizontal threads as vertical threads in its weave, while sateen has more vertical threads.
The result? Percale tends towards a crisp feel; sateen is silky. For warmer weather or hot sleepers, linen is a great choice that tends to look more lived-in, more relaxed.
Lastly, microfiber is a synthetic fabric which can provide unparalleled softness, often at much lower costs.
Once you’ve got your base, you can consider the look – print or plain, bright or neutral, trims or simplicity. That’s the fun part!
Finding the right bedding will be one of the most valuable things you do this year, so let this guide do the legwork for you. We looked at both the comfort and style of bed linens across the market and here is our pick of the best.
All prices the Full/Queen size
Parachute Percale Venice Set: from $299, Parachute
An homage to Parachute’s Californian roots, the percale Venice set has an undeniable light breeziness to it. Available in shades ‘sand’ and ‘powder’, the washed-out tones give a bohemian charm without compromising on quality or luxury.
The percale stays cool on the skin throughout the night and is stonewashed to ensure it continues to soften over time. As an added bonus, with every purchase a malaria bed-net is donated to Nothing but Nets, a United Nations Foundation anti-malaria campaign.
Now you really will sleep easy.
Brooklinen Classic Hardcore Sheet Bundle: from $198, Brooklinen.com
The simplest set in the range, Brooklinen’s Classic collection is anything but ordinary.
By using only single-ply, long-staple cotton, the result is a seriously smooth and light percale fabric that stays cool and crisp, even at their lowest thread count (the Classic still clocks in at 270).
The color selection only includes neutrals and simple stripes, but the tasteful palette suggest curation rather than limitation. With the bundle including a flat sheet, top sheet, 4 pillow cases and a duvet set, this is a great balance of affordability and quality.
The Casper Sheets: from $140, Casper
The mattress experts have expanded into the entire bedding range and for good reason: they know what they’re doing. There’s only one style, available in 6 two-tone or plain colors, but nevertheless this is good bedding.
Not only is the percale cotton exceedingly comfortable, but the Casper team have added a few handy details to ensure maximum practicality.
Snap ties inside each duvet corner, a hidden zipper at bottom, clear labels on the fitted sheet to tell you which side is which – sleeping well has never been so simple.
Threshold™ Performance Sheet Set Solids 400 Thread Count: from $44.99, Target
A national favorite for a reason, this bedding by Target is affordable, soft and available in 21 colors. There are no patterns or extra flourishes here, just simple and classic sheets that still rack up a 400 thread count.
The sateen weave gives an especially soft and slippery feel on the skin, yet they still hold up well in a tumble dryer and all sheets include practical labels of the top, bottom and sides.
Although this set doesn’t include a duvet cover, there are plenty of accompanying options in the Threshold™ range which keep up the standard.
Pinzon Paris Printed Egyptian Cotton Sateen Duvet Set: from $54.99, Pinzon by Amazon
It’s easy to feel Amazon is taking over the world but it’s also hard to say no to this duvet set.
With a subtle filigree pattern on either eggshell or gray Egyptian cotton, these covers look far more expensive than their price tag.
The sateen weave is perfect for those who their sheets on the silky side but need something durable; multiple reviews claim them to be pet-proof. Available on Prime shipping, you’re just two days away from a great night’s sleep.
The White Company’s Savoy Bed Linen Collection: from $169, The White Company
British-based The White Company has recently expanded into the US market, to great success. Winning New York Magazine’s ‘Best Sheets’ prize earlier this year, the Savoy collection is a perfect example of the brand’s Egyptian cotton bedding.
Unsurprisingly, the options are all white-based but you can opt for delicate cord trim in Silver, Navy or Mink. Soft yet still crisp, these are the sheets that will make you feel you’ve brought the five-star hotel experience into your own bedroom.
Mellanni Brushed Microfiber Bed Sheet Set: from $24.70, Mellanni
This option by Mellanni is one of the best-sellers on Amazon with over 37,000 customer reviews and a 4.5 star rating – the people have spoken and they love these sheets.
Instead of cotton, they’re made from microfiber which creates an especially soft feel while still being thin and lightweight; perfect for quick washing and easy storage.
Hypoallergenic, available in 36 colors and budget-friendly, these sheets have proven particularly popular with families, students and young kids.
The Verdict: Best bedding sets
Our ultimate favorite has to be Parachute’s Venice set. It may not have the va-va voom of print, it may not pack in any secret details, but it did give us the best night’s sleep of the bunch.
Jumping into bed became a real treat, rather than simply the last step at the end of the day, and Parachute’s flawless shades earned a lot of compliments from jealous roommates.
Although it’s not the most wallet-friendly of the bunch, this set includes everything you need to completely makeover your bed – what are you waiting for?
For the more economically-minded, you really can’t go wrong with Mellanni’s Microfiber offering. It is unbelievably soft, easy to store and the durability is impressive considering how affordable it is. We couldn’t find a comparable range of colors on the market – or a more loyal fanbase. This buy is reliable without being boring.
And if you’re somewhere in the middle budget-wise, looking to maybe try something new as summer creeps nearer, why not go with Loomstead’s linen set? It’s beautiful to look at, even better to sleep in, and heavily rooted in sustainability. Win, win, win.
