Winter is a magical time for a birthday. In the Northern Hemishpere, everything is waiting–and the world is filled with mystery and promise. Celebrate this velvety time, in birthday loungewear from Jane’s Vanity.

Wake up on your special day in the glamour of devoré (burnout) velvet from Christine Vancouver. The technique of devoré just suits the Art Deco style of her new Erté collection, named for the Jazz Age Russian-French artist and designer. His colorful and folkloric images reflect the northern lights of his native Russia. Christine reinterprets his joyful images in pajamas and robe of peacock-tail print.

For a festive birthday lunch or aperitivo, dress yourself in more velvet. But first, celebrate the female form in confections from Karolina Laskowska. Perhaps the Cassiopeia Lingerie Set of burgundy and gold lace. Or the Eos Aubergine Lingerie Set in shades of wintery purple.

The dress of the day is the Petrol Flared Sleeves Velvet Dress from Stelios Koudounaris. You’ve been waiting for this moment to wear its luxurious hand and ravishing drape, slash of skirt, shoulder pads, and wide belt. Here’s to you! 

Enjoy your day. There might be snow. Light some candles (Voyage et Cie) and take a seat by the window. JV wishes you all of the blessings of a wondrous year.
