Dream in Stripes and Dots All November Long
Fogo Island Inn thinks it’s dreamy that Fogo Island Shop has partnered with Toronto-based designer Jeremy Laing and Canadian-born, Paris-based, Fogo Island Arts alumnus Zin Taylor, to produce a limited run of unisex pyjamas. To mark this collaboration, there will be a month-long celebration of comfort and craft at the Inn: the two-night Pyjama Time Sleepaway Itinerary will feature all meals, excursions, a designer’s reception and special bedtime readings. This itinerary runs November 1 through to November 30, 2016.
This November only, Jeremy Laing and Zin Taylor's limited run of unisex pyjamas will be made available to in-house guests staying on the Pyjama Time Sleepaway Itinerary at two-for-one friends-and-family pricing. The entire Stripes and Dots line is made of 100% cotton and is inspired by Zin Taylor’s project, The Story of Stripes and Dots, which features works Taylor created during a residency with Fogo Island Arts. Taylor conceives his sculptural components—stripes and dots in many variations—as words in a sentence, the articulation of which can be ongoing. Canadian designer and maker Jeremy Laing continues Taylor’s narrative, adding his own ideas about a stripe and a dot and how they connect with his design vision. The result blurs the lines between night and day, art and fashion, statement and silence.
