When was the last time you heard the phrase ‘ bed jacket’ used in common parlance? Not since your granny’s granny was in her dotage, we think. This delightfully recherché garment is back in vogue, though, thanks to Toast’s cosy new autumn/winter collection. When the Brit brand first launched in 1997, the idea of ‘ loungewear’ didn’t yet exist, but its core offering of stylish pyjamas helped to popularise the idea. Its new range includes beautiful cashmere jumpers, supersoft jersey dresses, linen separates (from £79 for a t-shirt) and padded bed jackets in Indian cotton (‘Kantha’ gown, £195). There’s also an expanded selection of home accessories that, in the best Toast tradition, hail from all over the world: think splatter-design mugs from a potter in Brooklyn, cushions embroidered by a Fairtrade collective in Bengal (‘Mohenjodaro’ cushion, £95) and soft cotton pestemal towels ( jacquard towel, £39; toa.st).
