Alberta Ferretti unveils the new Alitalia uniforms. The collection was presented today, on the occasion of her Resort 2019 and Limited Edition show, and signaled the opening of Milan Men’s Fashion Week.
Alberta Ferretti has created a new uniform that is timeless and elegant, dedicated to the Italian airline’s land personnel and inflight crew, including a suit for men and a skirt suit and dress for women. The pieces are created in a seasonless lightweight fine gauge blue wool that is breathable to ensure comfort and allow movement during flights and all airport activities. The clothes are customized with satin gold buttons engraved with the “A” for Alitalia, and the women’s jackets are marked at the waist with a gros-gain ribbon in the Italian tricolor of the flag.
The outerwear includes raincoats made of cotton and waterproof nylon, for both men and women, finished with a removable lightly quilted lining.
The look includes cotton poplin blouses with pocket detail, foulards and ties in matching silk twill, leather gloves and wool knitwear. For the in-flight crew, Ferretti designed a vest and an Alitalia logoed jacquard apron style dress.
The new Alitalia collection stems from the need to meet the numerous requests coming from the operating personnel, with the objective of improving the quality of work of those who wear them daily. The uniforms combine both practicality and elegance to guarantee the ground personnel and the inflight crew comfort and well-being for all work occassions and through every season. With this in mind, the uniforms designed by Alberta Ferretti have been studied and designed while taking Alitalia’s staff’s advice and suggestions into consideration.
