Blog: Leonie BarrieGucci’s working wardrobe

Leonie Barrie | 3 May 2006

Brown is the new black…at least it is for Gucci’s store staff. In its new post-Tom Ford era, the designer label is ditching its black uniform and opting instead for brown suits with a more approachable, more relaxed feel. Silk scarves for female employees and pocket squares for the men will help soften the look even further.

Gucci’s black-clad assistants are renowned for their cold and intimidating manner, but will a change of colour automatically bring about a change in attitude? While that remains to be seen, the uniforms are sure to epitomise the style of the luxury goods house, now under the design direction of Frida Giannini.
