It's been about 10 years since Sephora employees got uniform makeovers, and now they're taking it up a few notches, as Prabal Gurung is creating new uniforms for the beauty retail juggernaut. "My intention was to reflect the style and playfulness of shopping in a Sephora store, but to also make sure they would be functional in such a fast-paced environment," Gurung explained to WWD.
Starting in April (in Sephora's North America locations only), you'll see female beauty advisers decked out in fitted black pantsuits with red detailing or black shift dresses highlighted with red trim. Male employees will don black shirts and pants, along with black sweaters with red accents. "The dress incorporates one of my favorite design elements, offering a flash of vibrant red, while the women's pant suit and the separates for men give a sleeker, more tailored look," Gurung explained. So if you don't already have several reasons to visit a Sephora, soon you'll have a new one: to admire the advisers' haute new ensembles.
