With new government restrictions and a rise in new COVID-19 cases in Hong Kong, there’s no better time to make a conscious effort to stay at home. But who says we can’t dress for the occasion? Whether you’re in the market for sweatsuits, pyjamas or a robe, we have some ideas for you.
7 Days Active
Danish activewear label 7 Days Active is a perfect example of a label you can live in, no matter how long you’re stuck at home. Sports bras and leggings for a Zoom yoga class? Check. Oversized T-shirt and sweats to binge-watch Netflix in? Check. Tank top and shorts for a supermarket run? Check. Bonus points for the uplifting colour names too – Safety Orange, Jolly Green and Princess Blue.

Wearing a matching set of pyjamas is like you’re dressing up to sleep. When you think of loungewear, T-shirts and sweats may be the first things to come to mind, but Ukrainian label Sleeper makes a strong argument for wearing your pyjamas all day. Comfy enough to sleep in, but chic enough to wear all day – what could be better?

Basics for Basics
Hong Kong-based Kayla Wong released her line of “basics with integrity” in 2016, and has become known for her cosy T-shirts that use low-carbon-footprint methods, sustainable materials and surplus fabrics. Our favourite pick from her latest release? The Second Skin cropped top is true to its name and has the softest touch.

What makes label The Pangaia special is that with each product purchased, one mangrove tree is planted, which means storing one tonne of the world’s carbon dioxide. The Pangaia aims to “create a global open-source platform for the latest eco-innovations and solutions, connecting like-minded individuals and organisations who care about the environment”. Unsurprisingly, it counts Pharrell, the Hadids and the Kardashians as fans.
