Beneath the ornate Edwardian lobby of London’s Connaught Hotel lies a portal from England to the East. The Aman Spa at the Connaught is a refuge of tranquillity amidst the hustle and bustle of the city above.
The initial project was undertaken on very tight deadlines. Having successfully completed this initial brief, we were glad to continue the relationship and redo their uniforms three years later with a different organic outlook. Having previously used polyester fabrics, they were keen to move towards an organic solution. Aman Spa decided to try Fashionizer’s exclusive Cotton Performance Fabric (CPF), whilst maintaining a unique uniform style.
Asian inspiration and British adaptation.
At this spa, two brands had to work together harmoniously. The uniforms encompassing the British Victorian luxury of the Connaught while still hinting at Eastern fashion and modern style of Aman Spa. In addition to this, on a practical level, the garments had to fulfil two guidelines: offering a professional and welcoming reception solution while maintaining a practical rnage of motion, ensuring staff are cool, comfortable, and have full flexibility and movement (needed for Thai massage). Fashionizer’s exclusive Cotton Performance Fabric has specific qualities to achieve these needs: breathable due to natural fiber, extra strength due to its rib-stop weave, complimented by its slight stretch content. Our overall goal from the begining of this project was ensuring that the new uniforms maintained a unique look for the spa in terms of style while still achieving a practical solution to the demands of a spa uniform. We were happy to achieve this with Aman Spa.
