Our Story

The French word Deshabillé (pronounced dez-ha-bee-ay) means 
“to be partially or casually dressed” or “to undress”.

    With this perfectly fitting name, in 2006 Sydney 

designer Roslyn Gleave created the Deshabillé brand,

offering a range of sexy, sophisticated and flattering

sleepwear, loungewear and beachwear 

that can be worn at home or beyond.

Having worked as a fashion designer for over 10 years,
I always felt drawn towards sleepwear.

 Each piece is designed to feel truly special, with a 

strong emphasis on using only the softest and most

luxurious fabrics available. Add to this a range of features

including intricate finishes, beautiful trims, embroideries

and lace and each Deshabillé piece 

feels and looks amazing and beautiful.

 Beautiful prints have always been important to me 

     When Roslyn started the label, she had a strong vision of what

she wanted her brand to be about. “While I was working as a

designer at Mambo I worked with highly talented artists and fell in

love with the amazing prints they could produce. I saw that there

was a clear gap in the market and an opportunity

for beautiful yet practical sleepwear that moved away from the

traditional ‘puppydogs & polkadots’ prints and offered more

sophisticated and fashion-forward prints for sleepwear.

    Not just stopping at sleepwear, Deshabillé also offer a range of loungewear which has been part of the business concept since the company’s launch.

I want people to have luxurious pieces to wear at home
when they’re not in their pyjamas.

    “Many people spend a huge amount of their time in track pants and 

comfort clothes, however it is amazing how many people wear daggy 

worn out items around the home! Our loungewear is not only comfortable 

and practical, it is also beautiful and flattering to wear. This means that you 

don’t need to feel ‘daggy’ when you get home from work and slip your comfy 

clothes on – you can now feel special and beautiful at home too.”


    While loungewear is a large focus during winter, during the summer 

months Deshabillé compliments its sleepwear collection with a range of 

artfully relaxed beach dresses and beachwear.

    “Having spent a good part of my life living on Sydney’s northern 

beaches, beachwear is a huge part of defining what summer means to me,

”Roslyn states. “I love the relaxed atmosphere of popping down to Manly’s 

famous corso and seeing everyone out with their tanned skin, big bold 

sunglasses and floaty beach dresses. You can’t beat relaxing, throwing 

something easy on and heading out for a coffee on a beautiful hot summer day.”
