Staff Uniforms Are Lacroix Couture at Sofitel's So Bangkok
It makes sense for a French hotel portfolio, such as Accor to recruit a French fashion designer such aslike Christian Lacroix to design not only the rooms, but the uniforms for their ultra hip Sofitel So Bangkok. As expected, these digs and outfits are So over the top while managing to maintain traditional Thai themes.
Lacroix married East and West elements into his unique designs that make each staff member a walking fashion plate. Using traditional Thai silk and silhouette the designer brings a little Paris runway show to the streets of Bangkok with his brightly colored uniforms for both men and women. Each piece is different from the next by using the basic elements and mixing and matching tops, bottoms, and sashes so everyone looks like a top model.
Just as the rooms were designed using The five elements of water, fire, earth, metal and wood, even the VIP Club got a splash of high-fashion with a giant mural featuring the final model sketches from Mr. Lacroix made into a collage against a vibrant background.
After seeing the uniforms in person, we can't wait for what Karl Lagerfeld does at So Singapore.
