Designer Airplane Wear

For the past 2 years, my school made "designer sweatshirts" a la LV and Burberry (London). Tommy Hilfiger or Giorgio Armani (i'm not sure which one) is designing uniforms for McDonalds, and Balenciaga makes uniforms for some bus (i think) company in Japan. Of course, Marc Jacobs, Christopher Bailey, Tommy, Giorgio, and Nicolas Ghesquiere do not design these outfits, and most of them look horrible (the sweatshirts at my school are chav galore). However, while looking at designer designed airplane uniforms, I thought some were actually kind of cute.
Christian Lacroix makes these uniforms for Air France. Very straight forward and nicely done. I think Christian Lacroix actually designed these himself. Here's his sketch:

Pucci designed these outfits for Braniff Air. These scream out Pucci, but they are still a little cute. Here's another variation of the Pucci airwear.
Here is the Zambesi uniforms for New Zealand airlines (thanks Tiffany!)

Zambesi have also designed Air New Zealand's latest uniforms :)

The detailing is amazing, although its pretty hard to tell from these pics :)
