Functional work wear
For Front of House Hospitality
Day Seven work wear has been created to be worn throughout the working week. our journey has been ever changing, beginning our research in Japan, we discovered our love for functional design. Combining a sense of refinement and simplicity, d7 combats fast-fashion with slow, made to order production tailored to your specific needs. We value the beauty, age and character that comes from celebrating the entire life cycle of our garments.
We encourage minimal water routines and using as little water as possible as the natural fibers we use have their own benefits for both people and our planet. The highly durable fabric has been purposefully chosen to withstand everything that the job throws your way. We vow to always explore new ways to provide you with naturally antibacterial fabrics which do not release any of the nasty odors that can come from working hard on the job. Good for your skin, completely sustainable, and extremely absorbent for those unfortunate yet all too regular spillages, day seven has your shifts covered from Monday through to Sunday.
THE BARISTA JACKET
Made for Melbourne’s ever changing weather, inspired by the Osaka barista. To be worn on the train to work, throughout the day assisting in carrying all your needs in these giant pockets and small features, never lose your glasses or your pens when signing off those milk deliveries. Then take this one out with you on your knock off drinks. A jacket made for the well deserved and the hard earned worker.
THE DUO SHIRT
Designed for the gals and guys, the gals can wear this men’s style shirt with the perks of filling the pockets of all the things we collect on duty. Allowing all genders to take comfort in the water and stain repellent quick reach internal panel. Stripping the idea of the traditional apron in the exchange for flexibility and weightlessness of mid weight linen.
An innovative apron complimenting the shirt through the use of magnetic fasteners which can be optionally attached to three positions on The Shirt for any gender and shape to wear. The triangular shape highlights the section of the traditional apron that actually gets used, whilst open airing the upper to allow style of the under garment to shine through.
The Top will see you through your whole working week, versatile to wear all year round, the tuck panel on the bottom hem allows you to keep the warmth in whilst your personal styling option of an ‘untuck’ keeps the air circulating throughout the warmer seasons. The pouch pockets pay respect to the traditional apron in its reconstruction to shape and the token pen pocket we all need to keep our on the job friends handy at all times.
The workers suit, this favourite combines the traditions of a coverall seen in many industries with the reconstruction of an apron, keeping the necessities needed for the duties of our front of house friends in mind, Allowing personal shaping to take place with the elasticated waist and tie front, you could be decking out the entirety of your diverse crew in these and no one will loose out on keeping with their own personal style.
This is made with experience and exploration into the deterrence of objectifying our humble servers. I personally love wearing a skirt to work but the impracticality is a hindrance at most.
I’ve designed these for the keen on keeping their underwear to themselves while maxing out on comfort, with unexpected shorts underneath a beautifully lined skirt, while diving into those unexpected and a deep side pockets.
THE EASY PANT
With long days of dancing around the contemporary walls of your cafe, bending and sliding are just two of the many moves these pants will echo your steps in. sitting on the sinch of your waist, that’s where they’ll stay and support you, they many even hug you just perfectly. The tapered shaping and ankle grazing finish on these work well with any of your favourite work shoe.
THE BARISTA SHORTS
A barista was my muse for these convenient shorts. Watching him wipe the side of his pants after every single bean grind. We’ve placed a japanese cotton terry in this panel so his coffee smears stay a little out of focus, without compromising on the pockets on the side of the waist, a few adjustments such as making them deeper and self lined for durability. And adding a friendly pocket and notepad pocket on the front hip.
THE EASY M' PANT
A take on the classic tapered chino pant, reconstructed from a vintage mens pair i wear religiously they have two darts in the front waist to allow for room flexibility through the bending on shift and the dancing during pack down. The cuffed ankle gives this pant the potential for style ups and downs.
THE YUKIO SHIRT
This is the shirt made for time saving, for those mornings that start off cold and once the flow begins, and the sun starts to beam through those windows, you no longer have to spend those fiddly moments rolling and struggle-buttoning your sleeves, we’ve borrowed a design element from my very own home comfys.. A jumper. We added a stretch pull up cuff in the same cotton terry that you find in a subtle panel under your front waist for all those moments you are without a shine and wipe cloth and and your garments are the cleanest available on the move. You’re welcome.
