I never knew Zara Home had a clothing section did you? On the hunt for nightwear that will take me through a balmy Christmas spent in India and a cold New Year in the UK, I stumbled upon Zara Home’s ‘Loungewear’ section.
Beautiful basics at affordable prices, the collection is made up of a mix of luxury items like denim quilted kimonos at £109.99, seamless wool dressing gowns £79.99 and pretty basics – printed cotton and lace shorts, £25.99, Broderie Anglais nightdresses in pale hues £29.99 and silky camisole vests.
The entire collection has a bit of a Toast feel to it with artisanal touches and Eastern silhouettes but much kinder to your credit card. The collection is made additionally covetable by being displayed in attractive colour groups – nudes, peaches, greys and indigos – it’s hard not to convince yourself you need them all in your life.
