It can be hard to keep up with all the -cores in fashion these days. We’re definitely living firmly within the gorpcore era. But what next? If Fall/Winter 2021 shows are anything to go by, prepare for snoozecore. That’s right, bathrobes and long johns were walked proudly down catwalks by Raf and Miuccia at their co-Prada show as well as by Virgil at the Louis Vuitton presentation. After a year like 2020, we’re already in the right mindset, so now it’s just a case of perfecting the style.
As you can probably guess, there’s a very fine line between I’ve-given-up-on-life and a carefully curated nonchalance when it comes to bathrobe coats in public, unless you're Harry Styles, in which case go right ahead with a bathrobe in public. For the rest of us, we’re here to walk the line with you. These coats offer the same cozy, effortless feeling as the lazy-day staple but with an elevated sense of laid-back style as seen in a number of Fall/Winter 2021 presentations.

Maison Margiela Linen Trench Coat
Cut from a cotton-linen blend gabardine, this Maison Margiela coat is a dream for the transitional months. A slightly relaxed fit means layering is still on the cards while detailing like patch pockets to the chest and waist, and a buttoned waist tie gives the trench coat a distinctive workwear feel.
Dusen Dusen Bathrobe
Now, this actually is a bathrobe, but it's also a definite candidate for guiding us into spring and summer. Green and white stripes to one side contrast with pink and orange stripes to the inside and waist tie for an unmissable finish. Style it right and you might go viral.
AMI Raglan Sleeves Belted Long Coat
A soft, natural hue sets the tone for this smoooooth number from AMI Paris. A detachable belt makes it highly versatile with a customizable fit, and the label’s signature attention to detail shines through in the material selection from the pure wool shell to the marbled buttons.
CFCL Milan Rib Enwrap Coat
CFCL really lives up to its name — Clothing for Contemporary Life — here. Seeing as contemporary life now basically means loungewear around the clock, the Milan Rib Enwrap Coat is the ideal elevated take on effortless modern-day style.
Gucci Wraparound Tie-Waist Coat
While we were thinking of French Terry bathrobes, Alessandro Michele at Gucci obviously envisioned a supremely elegant silk robe instead. Even if this was actually a bathrobe, we’d definitely wear it outside.
Louis Vuitton Woven Shearling Coat
Virgil ventured about as close as you can get to a bathrobe while retaining full dignity here. This bouclé overcoat features playful detailing in the form of a snake waist tie and an appliqué flamingo to the body.
