Air Dolomiti introduces new flight attendant uniforms

Air Dolomiti FAs

Air Dolomiti (Verona) has introduced new uniforms for its cabin staff. The airline issued this statement:

Air Dolomiti has presented itsnew collection of clothing and accessories for its flight assistants. This location, truly unique due to its architectural beauty, the materials used and the elegant design, was the ideal background for the event, with a glamorous and sophisticated atmosphere.

Designed by Laura Strambi, renowned fashion designer and Director of the ‘Laura Strambi – Yoj di Milano’ line, this new collection is distinguished by its elegance, refinedness and careful choice of fabrics: thanks, in fact, to the use of natural materials, the new uniforms guarantee comfort and easy movement; the tailored jacket, the skirt and the sleek slacks are all made from pure stretch wool. The down jacket, the new element within the collection, created with wool finishes, and the waterproof cotton trench are just some of the many items now available.

The various different models are made unique by the attention to detail, which has always been the strength of the Airline, and the search for new lines which create a sophisticated and modern silhouette. The use of turquoise, the corporate colour of Air Dolomiti, combined with grey, donates elegance and refinedness, the unmistakeable traits of the Airline.

Thanks are due to the assistance of the Carmi & Ubertis agency in Milan, which specialises in the construction, communication and management of brand image, who provided key consultancy on the Air Dolomiti image, andMetiki, a company in Busto Arsizio who transformed the precious fabrics into elegant uniforms.

The presentation also revealed for the first time the new in-flight service (available in a few weeks’ time) created with the assistance of Carlo Giannini, leader in the kitchen article sector, and the graphics agency SDB.

Laura Strambi has infused the new uniforms with her delicate taste and unmistakeable style, creating clothing items with a sharp, elegant and modern design.
