With their latest collaboration, Opening Ceremony follows in the footsteps of designers like Prabal Garung (who designed uniforms for Nippon Airways ) and Vivienne Westwood (who made ones for  Virgin Atlantic): Downtown hip kids Carol Lim and Humberto Leon teamed up with Estée Lauder to create a custom uniform for the brand's team of beauty advisors. The Opening Ceremony designers used a jacquard-print fabric inspired by vintage Estée Lauder packaging to tie the collection to the brand's heritage. The pieces — including a peplum blouse, pleated skirt, slim pant, and blazer — capture a modern take on retro uniforms (similar to these amazing retro airline uniforms). We'd gladly incorporate any of these pieces into our wardrobe. But honestly, with all the designer remakes of classic uniforms, doesn't it kind of feel like the whole world will resemble the final runway scene in Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead?
