Sophisticated southside diner Atlas and the northside-based, American-style outfit Dexter have collaborated with designers Urbanbar to create sharp uniforms perfectly suited to their businesses.
Two completely different venues in Melbourne, Atlas Owner Charlie Carrington and Dexter’s Sam Peasnell custom-made their own staff aprons together with Urbanbar’s Owner/Creative Director Leesa Dawson at Urbanbar to perfectly suit the needs of staff at their restaurants.
With both designs completely different, Urbanbar have released a video to show the process of how each of the designs were created and have come to life.
The aprons are part of Urbanbar’s recently dropped collection, which allows customers to custom-make their aprons/uniforms to suit their needs – everything from the general look of the apron, to where a pocket or a place for plating tools should be.
“At Urbanbar, we’re passionate about the details and we love offering customised uniform designs to our diverse customers,” Dawson says. “That’s why it was a fabulous experience working with the creative minds behind Melbourne dining hotspots Dexter and Atlas, delivering a customised new direction for their staff uniforms.”
“[The video] is worth a watch to understand the detail that goes into custom building an apron – from the initial brief through to the all-important launch. It’s so exciting to showcase our process and creations for two businesses making their mark on the Melbourne food scene.”
Dawson says the journey with both Carrington and Peasnell was an extremely collaborative and creative experience. “We dug into their design preferences and their brands so that their new aprons can be a unique representation of what they do,” she says.
