With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we asked our resident fashion columnist to pick the cosiest yet romantic gift for couples during lockdown — a swanky robe. Whether it’s a gift for you or your partner, these high-fashion housecoats offer everything from artsy elegance to sporty warmth.


A) Silky smooth

“This one is dramatic, fun and spirited. It’s a luxurious 100 per cent silk robe. I love the mix of the prints, animal meets floral.”, $835

B) Quilted comfort

“Talk about a great housecoat. The next best thing to being under a duvet is to be wearing a duvet robe. I’ve never seen a quilted housecoat of this nature.”, $329

C) Perfectly plaid

“This Scotch plaid flannel robe is a real classic, with an almost retro feel to it. I always love this plaid. It speaks to the Scottish girl in me.”, $115


D) Get in the ring

“This Muhammad Ali-inspired robe with his Truth poem embroidered will make you feel empowered.”, $255

E) Check it out

“I like this plush check one. It’s the kind of robe I could see my guy hanging out in. It’s a great no-nonsense robe.”, $62.99

F) Sporty style

“This rugby robe has a sporty motif with the banded cuffs. It looks cosy and warm and perfect for a young guy or one that’s young at heart.”, $159
