The recommended uniforms (not required) will be rolled out in April, the AP reported.
The basics include a navy-blue jacket, matching trousers or a skirt, a long-sleeved shirt and a hat, the AP reported. The set costs more than twice the price of the current uniforms.
The school is located next to an Armani boutique in the upscale Ginza shopping district, the AP reported.
