Weekend muse: the bathrobe you should lounge in, according to your neighbourhood

As socks become the new shoes and bathrobes the new outerwear (what you wear on the inside is a best-kept secret), this weekend we’re looking to relax.

And there’s nothing more luxuriously relaxing as a lush, opulent, fluffy AF bathrobe.

Whether it’s post bubble bath or pre breakfast on a Sunday morning, there’s no denying that the bathrobe is a true classic. We see American kids sport them when unwrapping Christmas gifts in ’90s movies. We take a nap in them when we’re on vacation and the hotel one seems all too alluring. And we sport one at home — towel types or satin types — for when we feel like being a walking, flowing, epitome of relaxation.

Here, we’ve put together which exact luxury bathrobe you should be lounging in this weekend, according to your Bangkok neighbourhood. Granted, Bangkok is a big city, so we’ve only selected eight of our most prominently featured hoods. Proceed at your own naked risk, and see you on the fluffy side.

You can’t fault a classic and you know it. You’re not an over-the-top show-off, and that’s exactly what people like about you — despite your penthouse on the river. This weekend, lounge in a Ralph Lauren Home bathrobe in elegant navy blue. Calm as the waters and made with 100% Egyptian cotton, it’s old school, and that’s what makes it the best.

Did we go a little too obvious with this one? You’re clearly an artsy individual, seeing as you live in the heart of the creative district. You look right at home in this pop pink Scion bathrobe, featuring — no less — hedgehogs. Made from light cotton, it’s a beautiful piece to wear during the day, and, knowing you, even out to the store. Nobody’s judging. Be sure to take a ‘gram.

There’s an article that describes Sathorn as a neighbourhood for “well-heeled jet setters.” Going with that statement, you’re lounging in this bathrobe by Missoni for the weekend. Do you miss trips to Italy? Cook up some pasta in this vibrant number and then lounge the night away with nougat and Negronis. Beyond design, what’s special about this bathrobe is that it has a hood too — an accent that is normally found in children’s bathrobes only. Playful, much like you.

It must be killing you to be in the heart of the city with nowhere to go. As snug as bug in a rug, you’re right at home in this snow white bathrobe by UGG. Elegant yet simple and sophisticated, this piece is made from cotton and fleece, to remind you of your last ski trip to Niseko. Nothing like weekend wanderlust.

You may be a hipster and live and breathe coffeeshops, but you’re still very lovable, Ari. That’s why we’re pairing you with this Marimekko bathrobe made of cotton waffle. Featuring the Norwegian brand’s signature Rosarium print, it’s a reminder of spring and summer time. Very refreshing, like a rose petal bath.

This one needs no explanation. Cue Versace by Drake and Migos.

Oh dear Ekkamai. You show Thonglor who’s boss with this Hugo Boss bathrobe. Named the ‘Lord Bathrobe’, it features a rich navy blue colour contrasted by jersey shawl, cuffs, and waist tie. Very preppy.

You fight like a tiger to make it through rush hour on the BTS from Phra Kanong, and that is exactly why you deserve Kenzo’s iconic motif on a bathrobe. You’re a fresh creative with an imagination that runs wild, which is why you perfectly suit this soft grey bathrobe with a neon contrast design. An urbanite through and through.
