Description

Airline Mini Edition: Style at 30,000 feet

This fascinating book examines every aspect of airline style, from the company liveries and interior designs of planes to advertising, haute couture, and airborne haute cuisine. Divided into four sections covering fashion, food, interior design, and identity, Airline shows how airborne culture has changed since the 1920s. The book spans the conservative to the outrageous, from saris to hotpants, from Hugh Hefner’s private jet to the huge Airbus A380. A wide selection of retro styles are illustrated with illuminating archive material and images of ephemera. Airline uncovers the style, image, and experience of the parallel universe that exists at 30,000 feet.

• Celebrates the unique culture of air travel, examining plane interiors, branding, food, and fashion
• Provides a wealth of retro style inspiration, from the elegant and chic to the kitsch and vulgar
• Will fascinate anyone who has ever traveled by plane
