The iconic red- and yellow-themed fast food chain has tapped American fashion designer Waraire Boswell to design McDonald's new contemporary uniform collections “WARAIRE for McDonald’s” and “Timeless Elements," Hypebeast reported. This is the first time McDonald's is working alongside notable designers to create employee uniforms.
Here's what they look like.
“Our new collections focus on comfort, fit, functionality and contemporary professionalism, delivering a uniform that crew and managers will feel comfortable to work in and proud to wear,” said McDonald’s Senior Director of HR Jez Langhorn.
Boswell drew inspiration for the uniforms from his personal experiences working at a McDonald's restaurant in California.
“As a former McDonald’s crew member myself, I understand the design and functionality needs of the next generation of McDonald’s uniforms, and I was personally inspired to design a look and feel that gives restaurant employees a greater level of confidence,” he continued.
Social media users, however, seemed to mostly bash the bleak uniforms.
