Fall Fast Asleep With These NISMO Pajamas

The sportscar of many drivers’ dreams is inspiring sleepwear that might help with a better night’s rest. Streetwear designer Daniel Patrick has collaborated with Nissan to launch a limited line of performance-oriented sleepwear, available to order in the United States.

The Fast Asleep capsule collection draws inspiration from Nismo, Nissan’s in-house motorsports and performance division. During the design process, Patrick spent time behind the wheel of the 2024 Nissan Z Nismo and was drawn to its combination of track-ready focus with distinctive styling.

Consisting of a pajama set and accompanying dress robe, the Fast Asleep collection includes:
  • Nismo-inspired color scheme
  • Nismo red accents and adornments nodding to the shape of the Z Nismo LED taillights
  • Red waist drawstring inspired by signature Nismo red stripe seen on lower edge of the Z Nismo
  • Strategically placed venting to support airflow management – an important feature of any sportscar design
  • Breathable materials for thermal regulation
  • Embroidered Nismo logos
Inspiration for the project also comes from the work of sleep expert Dr. Matthew Walker, whose extensive sleep research highlights the importance of quality rest for driver performance. Beyond his scientific credentials, Walker brings a unique perspective and passion to the project with a history of work within the highest level of motorsports competitions.

Building better sleep patterns and focusing on the quality and quantity of sleep can help produce tangible physical and cognitive improvements for drivers. One of Walker’s recommendations for improving sleep quality is ensuring the body is at an appropriate temperature at night.

“The sleepwear collection design includes strategically placed venting, which may help release trapped heat,” said Walker. “When we vent trapped heat, our body temperature can start to decrease, and that is the invitation to better sleep.”

The Fast Asleep collection follows Walker’s recommendations with the use of polar fleece material, side vents and a wide-legged pant to support both temperature regulation and air flow.

Nismo enthusiasts and sleep-conscious fashion fans can shop the Fast Asleep collection here. Limited to just 50 pieces each, the pajama set is USD 250 with the robe priced at USD 175.
