How do you go about creating a uniform for a neighbourhood and place that are anything but uniform? Such was the challenge taken up by Olivia, who draws on a number of years' experience as a designer and lives on Rue Lepic. "I've always had a bit of an offbeat approach to fashion," she admits. "On this particular project, I really liked the idea of coming up with something in tune with the multi-cultural, multi-coloured neighbourhood."
The result is a youthful, comfortable, timeless collection comprising black jeans or pencil skirt for women and black chinos for men, paired with either a shirt or T-shirt for both men and women. "With this uniform, we set out to capture another side of Pigalle, reflecting Barbès and Boulevard Rochechouart, with more of a young, hip-hop, streetwear feel." Olivia also designed small, colourful patches that pepper the team's uniforms from T-shirt sleeves to shoes - bucking conventional hotel trends in style!
