    thanks lena-odd choice...julien mcdonald....hmm...at first i thought the picture was of the old uniforms that he was going to re-design...i can't believe that's the NEW one... definitely not interesting...

    except i like the little hats that stephen jones designed for the women...they're cute... :flower:

    yes, the pillbox hats are ok, but they look too vintagy, a bit 'sinister' and 'wartime' to me :ninja:

    Had this been the case I'd short out the flight attendant call button pressing it every minute of the trip.

    it is a bit boring but i think it has to be conservative since it's a uniform and has to match everyone's needs.

    to me, it's kind of 'been there, done that'. didn't they wear the same thing in the 20s? [[i think it was the 20s :huh: ]]

    I'm sure that he had to fit in what the BA directors were waiting for

    the more i think about it...the more i think you may be on to something, lena...this is 'wartime' and maybe they want the flight crew to look more serious and authoratative...more powerful...i'm sure that was discussed...hmmmm.... :cry: too sad...

    one more close up, i really :sick: hate his take on the :rolleyes: smoking collar and this bag .. itseems a bit un-practical to me [​IMG]

    as for the wartime look, well.. i know we are in a bad global situation , no need to get reminded everytime one steps on a BA flight. Air travel is down and it should go UP by creating a tranquile, friendly atmosphere, lieutenant airhostess is not easing any troubles for bruised BA image :innocent:

    ps: i know.. tried to edit with postiong the photo but the site went frozen :(

    I so do not udnerstand the point of hireing him to design these , they don't look veyr fashionable.

    On a related note, I think Kate Spade does the flight attendant uniforms for Song (relatively new low-cost/hip carrier here in the states):
