British fashion brand, Jaeger is planning a makeover of the royal uniforms of Kensington Palace's front of house staff.
Headed by the British Fashion Council chairman, Harold Tillman, the luxe fashion house is regarded as one of the pioneer heritage brands of the country and is said to have strong connections with the Royal Family.
Although, the brand's prime focus is formalwear, they also produce accessories for men and women, footwear and gift collections.
It has been reported that the brand's creative director, Stuart Stocdale, has been inspired by the Palace's Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection for designing the new uniforms.
I have been inspired by centuries of royal and court style and married this with modernity to offer the Palace staff a bespoke uniform that they can feel proud of and enjoy wearing. The new uniform really tells a story and reflects Jaeger's reputation for timeless and iconic designs that transcend time, the Telegraph UK quoted Stockdale as saying.
The current collection is said to be trendy and contemporary, designed in red and including double-breasted blazer and black, slim cut trousers.
Working with Stuart on this exciting design project has been a very rewarding experience. It has been fascinating to see how he has used the palace's historic architectural and interior design details, as well as elements of the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection to create completely new uniforms which are both contemporary and stylish, Kensington Palace curator Deirdre Murphy told Vogue UK.
The designs will be unveiled on March 26, 2012 when the palace re-opens next years.
