The scenes succeed one another in a creation that now more than ever inspires a strong desire to travel.

Air France-Balmain collabo – ‘in-flight glamour still a thing’

Air France by Dior, 1962

In a nod to the fashion house’s heritage, the event is a modern take on Pierre Balmain and his models’ trips on board Air France, which has since time immemorial made in-flight glamour a standard thing for its attendants – with the use of top French designers.

The airline has a long history of showcasing the very best of Fench creations in front of a global audience, as that was the case back in March 1962, when it introduced the first of its designer uniform collection, the Dior-blue suit paired with a pillbox hat.
