Australian fashion doyenne Carla Zampatti has teamed up with Westpac to design the bank’s new corporate uniform.
The 70-piece range, which she unveiled alongside her Winter 2017 collection at The Royal Botanic Garden, includes sharp blazers, printed pencil skits and a hijab – a first for the bank.
Marie claire fashion director Jana Pokorny’s favourite piece? The men’s trousers, which were cropped à la current street style trends to reveal striped socks. “It was a cute touch,” she says. “I think it’s fun that they’re giving the men the option to be a little more fashion forward.”
Staff will sport the new uniform from April 2017 in celebration of Westpac’s 200-year anniversary.
