Kaufman Franco duo, Ken Kaufman and Isaac Franco will design new uniforms for American Airlines personnel, according to a Jan. 25 WWD report. This will be the first uniform overhaul for the airline in over 20 years. This new designer news comes on the heels of news that the company will have a new logo.
According to WWD, this design partnership is the first of its kind in both the design and the airline industry; it includes new uniforms for flight attendants, customer service agents and premium service team members. The design process will reportedly last approximately 24 months from sketch to rollout of the new uniforms. “We want them to look timely, but timeless, too,” said Kaufman.
Those not familiar with KaufmanFranco should just look to the red carpet. Earlier this week, country superstar Taylor Swift wore a white Kaufman Franco dress to the 40 Principales Awards at Palacio de los Desportes in Madrid. The dress featured a deep plunging neckline and a short enough length for the singer to flaunt her long legs.
Also on the KaufmanFranco fashion kick this week is Jennifer Lopez who wore one of the designs to the premiere of her new movie, “Parker” in Las Vegas. Her white dress was a much longer length than Swift and what it made up for in length it lacked in breath. It featured sheer mesh detailing on the very low back and sides. It was the kind of dress where one had to make a choice to breathe or wear underwear. She chose to breathe.
If the American Airline uniforms are anything remotely close to these two Kaufman Franco dresses, then flying the friendly skies will take on a whole new meaning for certain segments of the flying population.
