They Will Have No Stripes but They Will Have Red Sneakers

Virgin Voyages is out to change as much as they can about cruises to appeal to non-cruisers. Since they call their passengers “sailors,” they wouldn’t want their crew members to look like sailors or even just crew members, so stuffy old uniforms that other cruise lines give their shipboard employees just wouldn’t do.

Instead Virgin has hired maverick British fashion designer Gareth Pugh to design their uniforms. There will be no epaulets or stripes. Instead, look for touches such as custom red unisex sneakers by PLAE.
