THE RITZ-CARLTON HOTEL COMPANY
The vision for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company apparel program was to create a collection we can describe as “modern classics with a twist.” Cintas designed the entire collection as a wardrobe concept, a set of apparel that can be merchandised throughout the entire property. Because of the unique surroundings of each property, the collection was designed to compliment the timeless elegance and luxurious esthetics representative for the entire The Ritz-Carlton brand.
Male garments have to show consistency with a single-breasted closure with peak lapel styling. The female cardigan blazer, with an elegant notch detailing, is flattering on all body types. It can be merchandised with a timeless jewel neck dress, numerous blouses, an elegant classic skirt or a contemporary flat front slack. The color palette consists of deep navy suiting in both pinstripe and fine solid twill and luxurious pastel colors for the female blouses, scarf and ties. The color story is carried over with beautiful detailing inside of the garments. Feminine floral jacquard lining for ladies and classic tonal stripe for gentleman, both with contrast piping and pick-stitching to commemorate the hand made suiting tradition. The accessories, silk scarf and four in hand ties in luxurious pastel colors complete the contemporary color palette.
This collection offers endless possibilities in merchandising unique looks for each of the landmark properties. It reflects the need for flexibility, simplicity, and personalization. The apparel was inspired from haute couture silhouettes reflecting classic styling with a contemporary feel. The clean, elegant look, attention to detail, and impeccable tailoring of the garments defines the design philosophy for the entire Ritz-Carlton Apparel Collection.”
The Ritz-Carlton mission is “Ladies and Gentleman servicing Ladies and Gentleman.” This apparel program creates a first impression unparalleled by any brand. The program is a highly professional, elegant and refined look combined with comfort, durability and performance. It will help them service the clients with the highest level of Excellency and enrich their experience with The Ritz-Carlton’s impressive brand.
