It’s here: the career pinnacle of the artist formerly known as “Le Bath Towel”. The terry cloth personality was spotted on the December cover of Vogue Paris, lounging atop Rihanna’s earlobes. Dubbed “Creative Director of Bath-leisure”, sources confirm this tantalizing textile is here to stay. 

While this is all well and good, I had to wonder (loudly and to myself), how an average biped is supposed to successfully wear a towel in the public eye. That’s when my light blue bath robe came to mind. I hadn’t worn the thing in months; it was collecting shampoo flecks on a far corner hook in my bathroom. Why not try a bath-leisure rendition with a Garbage Lady twist? I ran for my scissors, lickety-split.


Though perhaps not as opulent as the original bath-leisure towel wrapped around one’s head, a bath robe cut into a jacket will make you feel like you’ve just emerged from the spa, even if your eyelashes are fluttering against a BO permeated beard in a packed L train. All you have to do is cut it to your preferred length. Don’t worry about sewing; fraying is highly unlikely. I suggest a vintage or thrifted robe in a rambunctious color. Perhaps this one. Or this one.

Perhaps this one??

Think it over.
