Move aside, athleisure. There’s another portmanteau in the style stakes, and it’s a serious contender for the top title — bathleisure. ICYMI, bathleisure flooded our feeds back in 2018 when celebrities such as Rihanna (the ultimate rule-breaker slash trend-maker), Rita Ora, CL, and Cardi B took dressing gowns from the shower to the streets and beyond. Now that self-isolation has reshaped what we consider our everyday fashion essentials, the laidback look has returned in full force. Which means Versace’s latest bathrobes are a very timely addition to your wardrobe and wish list.
Rendered in plush cotton terry for maximum comfort, the robes arrive this season in a brand-new Virtus print, mirroring the acanthus-embellished, V-shaped clasp of its namesake handbag. The interlocking Barocco letters stand out in bright primary colours against a white background, mixed with the words “Versace, Versace, Versace” (like the Migos hit), and complemented by checkerboard patterns on the cuffs and sash for a cheerfully idiosyncratic feel.
The buzzworthy I ♡ Baroque bathrobe – as seen on Drake and Offset – makes a comeback in hot pink as well as two-toned black and white, with belt and sleeves decorated with a gold-tone frieze depicting laurel wreaths, amphora vases, and the signature Medusa head.
And if you’re still not over that Jungle print (we understand), Versace has decked out several dressing gowns with the balmy palm frond motifs, in combinations of green and blue or red, orange, and pink with contrasting accents. We can totally see J.Lo swapping her iconic, internet-breaking dress for one of these bathrobes, which is all the more reason to snag a piece for yourself.
Then finish off your bathleisure ’fit with a pair of matching slippers in super-soft cotton, and you’ll reach peak cosiness in high style.
