We’re all accustomed to Heart Evangelista’s lavish lifestyle, but if there’s anything new she’s proven over the course of this quarantine, it's that she also has extra chic home outfits. She has recently established that the white frock is her go-to look, but she’s taking her pambahay's fashion potential to new sartorial heights with a surprising new combo: a bathrobe and a set of mules.
Note, though, that these aren’t your typical lounging robes you’d find at the department store. Heart’s warm fuzzy robe is, as we’d expected, a designer piece. It's the Taylor Hooded Bathrobe from storied Italian luxury brand Missoni, famous for its iconic zigzag prints which the robe naturally features. It’s not just the print that sets it apart. The Taylor bathrobe is made with cotton terry velour distinguished by its mouline knit, a special method where yarns are twisted together to create a ribbed effect.
Just in case you're wondering (or interested in copping a piece), Missoni’s Taylor robe costs $389 or approximately P19,812.35. Unfortunately, it’s all sold out on Missoni’s website, but we suspect they’ll restock in the near future.

As if the robe’s colorful design isn’t a statement enough, Heart posted a photo just last week revealing that she paired it with mules from Gucci with hues perfectly matching the rainbow colors of her Missoni zigzags—an Italian pambahay affair, we’d like to call it.
These mules are the brand’s Lupe 20mm Guccy Jeweled Leather Slides, studded with faux pearls and colored rhinestones. There’s a party in the back, too, as the heels are also embellished with cute silver rhinestones. The footbed is also, quite literally, the star of the show, as it features a constellation design. If you want a pair, it’ll cost you $687 or approximately P34,989.94 on neimanmarcus.com, but you’ll have to wait till they’re back in stock.

Heart has worn this designer pambahay outfit numerous times, particularly on spa days when she wants to feel comfortable but still look chic. And by the looks of it, we reckon it makes her me-time all the more special. The kicker is that it cost her a grand total of $1067 or approximately P54,802.29, but judging by the fact that she’s obsessed with it, she’ll definitely get her ROI anytime soon.
