Tokyo elementary school welcomes students in controversial Armani uniforms

Apr 8, 2018 by

A public elementary school in Tokyo’s upscale Ginza district has welcomed new students amid a lingering controversy over its pricey Armani uniforms.

On Friday, all 56 first-graders — except one absentee — wore the Armani outfits proposed by Taimei Elementary School.

While not formally required, the school’s recommendation effectively makes the attire official uniforms.

The outfits have come under criticism from some parents as they cost more than ¥80,000 per set, including optional items such as a sweater.
