British culinary duo Bompas & Parr—who literally wrote the book on feasting—is spending the summer turning Kew Gardens’ Palm House Pond into the “Tutti Frutti Boating Experience,” part of the Gardens’ “IncrEdibles” installations series. To add to the visual insanity, which includes a “giant fruit salad boating lake,” a “magnificent floating pineapple,” and a “secret banana grotto,” the sugar-mad artists have teamed up with designer Kit Neale to create the staff uniforms for the fruit-themed exhibit.

Not surprisingly, the uniforms’ palette errs on the brighter side: button-downs, tees, aprons, and jeans are decorated with fruit-based patterns from palm fronds to pears. The exhibition will be at the Gardens in London through September 1st, but those who can’t make it across the pond can see the complete mini-collection of Tutti Frutti gear via the link below. And if you’re feeling jealous of the garish garbs, you could always cop an all-over-print food sweatshirt.
