The actress and activist Robin Wright and the designer Karen Fowler, longtime friends and fellow Texans, founded Pour Les Femmes in 2016 in a bid to craft the perfect pair of pajamas while collaborating with the women of eastern Congo. Working closely with the initiative Give Work, the label employs embroiderers from the region to decorate capsule collections of its airy and expertly made pajama sets (it takes two days to complete a single pair). The brand also offers minimalist silk and linen slips made from fabric ethically sourced from Los Angeles, but it’s the crisp organic cotton creations, evocative of traditional men’s shirting, that are best suited for working from home. For the line’s spring 2020 collection, Wright and Fowler looked to ’40s-era beach clubs in the South of France for inspiration and landed on old-fashioned blue and red ticking stripes (a nod to seaside umbrellas) and a graphic primary-colored swimmer print. The classic tops could even be paired with jeans when office life resumes.
