New workwear especially for women

In a first for France, SNCF has partnered with Armor Lux and Cepovett to create technical clothing especially for women.

Updated on

Prestigious partners

In response to a 2017 call for tenders, market leaders Armor Lux and Cepovett—both based in France—worked with SNCF to create two different collections for women.

The first, designed by Cepovett, is a new range of technical clothing and protective gear for women at SNCF Réseau and SNCF Mobilités. The second, from Armor Lux, was created for Gares & Connexions employees working in our TechniGare maintenance stations.

Workwear that’s right for women

The new lines are functional, easy-care and designed for the tasks each group of women carries out in the workplace.

They’re also comfortable and shaped for women’s bodies, thanks to a few key features:

  • darts and other tailoring around the bust
  • elastic inserts in the back (Cepovett line)
  • lengths for women
  • high back waistband (Cepovett line)
