New York-city based design and concept firm AvroKO, the masterminds behind various self-propelled projects such as PUBLIC and Double Crown restaurants, recently revealed their latest venture–as fashion designers.
Teaming up with the Mona & Holly studio, AvroKO will release a limited edition of service uniforms in April as part of their Spring ’09 collection. Inspired by “smart and tidy service uniforms of decades past,” the collection doesn’t stray from AvroKO’s signature aesthetic–concept driven designs that are somewhat nostalgic of times past while maintaining a sense of modernity.
The uniforms, which will be worn by PUBLIC and Double Crown staff beginning early May, bridge the gap between hospitality and fashion through the functionality of the pieces and overall design. The collection contains basic shift dresses, flouncy skirts, and structured tops that are elegantly detailed, glamorizing the femininity of uniforms of decades past.
AvroKO’s collection for Mona & Holly will be available for purchase in select boutiques in New York, Chicago, and Dallas, with pieces ranging in price from $75 to $365.
