Pilus: cultivating stylish elegance through an entire loungewear range
(nightwear and loungewear for men and women)
Pilus saw the day in 1983, based on an original idea by Michel Guillerme and Jean Pierre Darnaud who wanted to enhance evenings at home by bringing a little panache to loungewear. The objective was to create nightwear and loungewear which would enable men and women to feel as stylish at home in the evenings as they do during the day. To achieve this, Pilus has opted for understatement, timeless design and elegance. The brand was ahead of the curve with the notion of slow fashion: far from ephemeral, garments are designed as sure values, a safe haven from bad taste. Colours are mainly neutral with timeless shades of camel, grey, black and beige… Loose shapes offer freedom of movement and superior comfort, which is further enhanced by the softness of premium raw materials: cotton satin, silk, cashmere and beautiful jacquards. Cuts are chosen carefully for a flawless drape and high-quality finishing. Since 2009, Pilus has joined the portfolio of brands belonging to the Roanne-based company Création Mervil, founded in 1936 and specializing in nightwear and loungewear (including Christian Cane, for example).
