New Heathrow Express uniforms: fashion hit or miss?

By | Category: Travel news

Staff on the Heathrow Express are arguably the first lot of Londoners that visitors due to arrive for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games, will see. Which is why there has been such a commotion about the service’s new uniform – due to be introduced in July.


Designer Nicholas Oakwell claims to be “thrilled” with the oufits that come in two shades of green and include two-tone skirts for women and trouser suits for men. However not everyone agrees with Oakwell. The London Evening Standard’s fashion editor, Karen Dacre, described the Heathrow Express uniforms as “unlikely to get the service steaming ahead in the fashion stakes” while fashion PR expert, Nick Eden, claims that the colour makes staff look “jaundiced’.
