Venice, Accademia Galleries workers will wear Christian Dior uniforms

In Venice, guards at the Gallerie dell'Accademia will wear new Christian Dior uniforms: tailored suits imagined to combine practicality, recognition and elegance.

Workers at the Gallerie dell’Accademia in Venice will wear Christian Dior. In fact, the French haute couture fashion house will sign the new uniforms of the Venetian museum’s staff, as part of a new two-year project in which the Gallerie dell’Accademia in Venice and Dior, which designed, created, and manufactured the uniforms for the security workers, are collaborating. The uniforms, the institute points out, are meant to be “a new sign of the restart of the Galleries, a touch of style and glamour in the ’home’ of masterpieces by Bellini, Giorgione, Tintoretto, Titian, and Veronese.” A collaboration that “collaboration once again confirms the strong bond that Dior has with the city of Venice,” the museum says in a note.

The uniforms consist of a sartorial suit made of the highest quality fresh wool with a classic style that includes a jacket and pants, white shirt, as well as an elegant caban that is refined in its finish and details. To complete the uniform, the French house also made a tie for men and a silk scarf for women, with an original and delicate declination of the green and red museum logo, signed Gallerie dell’Accademia di Venezia.

The initiative stemmed from the museum’s need for new uniforms that would combine practicality, recognizability and elegance, in line with the quality, richness and authority of the works on display in the halls. The Galleries, which chose the path of technical sponsorship through a public selection procedure, were able to count on the positive response of the maison Dior, which according to the institute is “perfect to meet the museum’s needs and enthusiastic about sharing this project.”

Giulio Manieri Elia, director of the Gallerie dell’Accademia in Venice, says, “Art and fashion have always been close and connected worlds. The collaboration with the prestigious maison Christian Dior represents for the Galleries, in the effort to renovate and refurbish the halls, a further opportunity to rethink its image also through the garments created specifically for its staff where elegance, creativity and authority introduce to an artistic heritage of an inestimable quality.”
