We provided staff uniforms for the award-winning Hélène Darroze Restuarant at the Connaught, the iconic Coburg Bar and for in-room dining services. The hotel uniforms had to be designed in line with the heritage of The Connaught, blending the traditional with the fashionable and contemporary while maintaining the individuality of each service area.
The overall design concept reflects the Connaught’s status as a destination hotel in the heart of one of London’s most exclusive and fashionable districts, Mayfair. The colour palette for the bespoke uniforms is deep blue, charcoal and black, with accents to mirror the colours of the interiors. The collection ranges from glamorous hostess dresses in satin and matt black, to deep blue velvet men’s jackets and completed with classic tailoring in quality English grey wool.
The Connaught management challenged us to achieve a balance between tradition, modernity and the practicality of the operation in a busy London hotel, and feel we have been successful in answering all aspects of this complex uniform brief.
