Derek Rose: Tailored Slumber

Derek Rose has almost singlehandedly turned loungewear into a standalone industry, thanks to an unerring eye for detail and design.

Derek Rose has been tailoring the nightwear of royalty, film stars and musical legends over many decades, yet despite their envious list of notable patrons, they conduct business in an admirably discreet way. Flashy logos are never considered, neither are jumping on the back of celebrities. They value quality, comfort and impeccable design over anything else.

Founded in 1926 by Lou Rose, the father of Derek, the family business has been wielding the finest nightwear, loungewear and underwear for three generations. Lou’s mantra was to create a brand unsurpassed in luxury, using the finest silk and cottons. Derek joined the business in 1953 and it was relaunched under his name. Today, the brand stays within the Rose family, with Derek’s daughter Nancy as design director and Sacha as managing director.
