Nashville’s The Hermitage Hotel recently partnered with Draper James, a lifestyle brand founded by Reese Witherspoon and inspired by her Southern roots. Draper James custom-designed an exclusive, new staff wardrobe and new afternoon service will be named Spillin’ Tea with Draper James.

 

“We are honored to partner with The Hermitage Hotel and play a part in the latest chapter of this iconic Nashville hotel’s story,” said Kathryn Sukey, head of design, Draper James. “We worked closely with the team at The Hermitage Hotel on a color palette that speaks to the evolution of the hotel’s interiors and on a staff wardrobe that represent the perfect mix of new Nashville and heritage Nashville. I know when any employee wears them, they will embody the confidence we always set out to inspire.”

 

With a new print known as The Hermitage Ditsy Floral, the staff wardrobe honors the The Hermitage Hotel’s role in the ratification of the 19th Amendment with yellow accents emblematic of the Women’s Suffrage Movement. Female staffers will wear a special edition of Draper James’ Loretta dress with the print, and tops, the brand’s signature blazers, custom pencil skirts and trousers designed for the hotel. Bellmen will be dressed in Draper James suits in Draper James Navy with Ditsy Florals accents like ties and pocket squares. Some of the items will be available for purchase.

 

“Guests who visit The Hermitage Hotel are met with elevated, approachable luxury deeply rooted in Southern hospitality,” said Molly Hardie, owner, The Hermitage Hotel. “Our partnership with Draper James is a natural extension of this spirit. It was a pleasure to work side-by-side with this quintessentially Southern, female-founded brand to create a wardrobe for our hotel team and a signature print that seamlessly adds a modern, fresh edge to the hotel’s timeless elegance.”

 

The limited-time Spillin’ Tea with Draper James will feature a menu of classic Southern fare inspired by Witherspoon’s Whiskey in a Teacup cookbook. The tablescapes will incorporate linens from Draper James with The Hermitage Ditsy Floral print. The service is offered Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 2–4 p.m.

 

“We look forward to welcoming guests and locals alike to this special edition of our Afternoon Tea service and showing our Southern Hospitality to all who visit,” said Dee Patel, managing director, The Hermitage Hotel. “We were delighted to work with Draper James to tailor the perfect wardrobe that reflects the soul of the hotel and will allow our team to look great and feel great when they take care of our guests with The Hermitage Hotel’s warm and gracious hospitality.”
