Today the new AF uniform, designed by christian lacroix. was unveiled to press (tv radio newspapers) in the Palais de tokyo, in paris. I had the opportunity to be there and all I can say is that i found it really great. the show was amazing:
1- models showing AF's uniform since 1950
2-models showing the new uniform
3- af employees showing the new uniform.

I can't believe Christian Lacroix is going 80's retro. Epaulle "pagode" = 1980s huge padded shoulders. The current uniform is so much classier...
At least its better than what they were wearing when I worked for them... Nina Ricci designed italian table cloths for the female cabin staff, and those awful dresses the ground staff wore with AF AF AF AF AF AF AF!

Quoting Alcregular (Reply 11): If I was given one of those to wear, I would refuse point blank.
Actually Alcregular, AF staff (ground and cabin crew alike) are able to pick and choose what they want to order from the various components of the uniform. The only stipulation is that certain pieces must be worn with other certain pieces, according to the uniform manual. But if someone does not like a certain piece, then they are not obligated to order it or wear it.

What's with those horribly big bows? They look like over grown doll babies! Aside from that the uniforms are beautiful indeed! I wish my company would bring out something more stylish for me to wear! Not gonna happen though

I was worried the U.S. Air Force (AF) had come out with a new uniform and didn't tell any of us about it, I almost fell out of my seat! I just bought the Air Force Mess Dress uniform last year for about $300.
