Hotel giant InterContinental Hotels Group has announced that New York-based designer Timo Weiland has been appointed style director for the group’s Crowne Plaza brand in the Americas and will design a new collection of hotel team member uniforms, entitled Momentum by Timo Weiland.
The innovative fashion minds of the Timo Weiland brand—Timo Weiland, Alan Eckstein and Donna Kang– will lead the uniform design process from ideation to final creation and production using inspiration from their own travels as well as meeting with team members at Crowne Plaza properties.
“The Timo Weiland-designed Crowne Plaza brand uniforms for men and women embody a signature classic prep style with a modern, tech twist,” said Weiland. “The designs are elegant and handsome with ease-of-movement in the tailoring and refined details. The color palette, textures, and silhouettes set the tone aligning with the design–led philosophy exemplified by the interiors of Crowne Plaza properties.”
Added Eric Lent, VP of Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza, The Americas: “Timo Weiland has an ambitious, fresh energy and draws on inspiration from travel and culture. Momentum by Timo Weiland embodies the confident, successful and trend-forward mindset that the brand’s guests exhibit personally and expect from their favorite brands.”
