POSH PRESENTS: There’s a leak among the elf colony: WWD was tipped off on at least one thing David Beckham has bought for his wife, Victoria, for Christmas. David put in a call this week to Harrods to order two pairs of silk pajamas by Olivia von Halle.

Newcastle, England-born von Halle was working in China as a trend forecaster when she was inspired by the lounging pajamas worn by Coco Chanel in the Twenties to create something luxurious and glamorous that she — and her friends — would want to relax in at home. She returned to London in 2010 with a bulging order book and launched her line, which is now stocked retailers including Bra Smyth, Faire Frou Frou and Nancy Meyer in the U.S.; at Harrods and Fenwick in the U.K., and at Brown Thomas in Ireland. Prices start at 260 pounds, or $422 at current exchange.
