We grew up on opposite sides of the world - one in Australia, one in England - and stumbled across each other in Canada. The world’s a funny place right? Molly had to head back to Australia and I had to play grown-up back in London. So that left us with Skype. We Skyped on Sundays.

I won, promising to step up our Sunday shenanigans. She moved. And here we are.

We still loved our Sundays, but it became clear that Molly loved something even more. Wearing my shirts was hot (and she knew it), but the dry cleaning bill for the jam and morning coffee spills made it clear she needed one too. So, we set out on a mission to make her one like mine. We created Desmond & Dempsey.

We’ve taken my shirt, reimagined it for the bedroom and tailored it for her. Our prints are exclusive, designed and hand-painted here in London and inspired by our Sunday adventures. We only work with top quality cottons and our pyjamas are made to last .

Molly now has her own. A timeless classic. Handsome style with feminine touches… rolled cuffs, slip on shorts and pockets. It’s seductive comfort - and it’s all hers.




About our pyjamas



Our Prints

“Through our prints, we hope to tell a tale of a life lived with excitement and generosity of spirit.”

Our prints are a reaction to two great pleasures in life: travel and storytelling. Our curiosity of foreign lands and locals ignites the inspiration for our collections. We take time exploring, wandering, wondering and romancing in a new city before bringing home a collection of tales that become the roots of our prints.
Our prints are artworks drawn, printed, painted, or etched in our London studio, with the sole intention of making you feel good. Vibrant designs and bold motifs bring a conversation to the prints, and with them, we hope an uplifting and wonderful mood.

Our Shapes

There is an old world charm in pyjama dressing. A real pleasure to be had in eating breakfast in a two-piece pyjama suit. Our collection of pyjamas aims to preserve this classic sentiment - while carefully updating the tailoring for modern comfort.

For him,
the focus is on creating pyjamas that fall into the routine of getting home; keys down, jeans off, pyjamas on. A good fit, rather than a slim fit, the attention is focused on practical details; useful pockets, easy to wash, lightweight fabric.

For her, we stay true to our original pursuit; to make his shirt for her. We continue to take his shapes, tailor it for her and reimagined it for the bedroom. As a result, there is an underlying handsomeness to our shapes. A subtle suggestiveness to the fit.


 



Made in Portugal

An average set of pyjamas is made up of 52 pieces. These pieces are cut by hand, sewn together, pressed, checked and packed by teams of human beings. There are no shortcuts in creating long lasting quality, it takes time, devotion and skill to properly produce our pyjamas. We are committed to allowing the time for our garments to be developed and paying the true costs of their creation.

We are incredibly proud to say that our products are made in Portugal. With careful consideration and expert skill, we currently have three factories working with us to manufacture our collections.
