Virgin America goes “Bananas” for new uniforms

Virgin America is giving its entire human fleet — from pilots and airport crew to in-flight “teammates” — a makeover with sleek new uniforms designed by Banana Republic.

The new “utility chic” get-ups, which debut August 8, are built around Virgin America’s existing black, gray and red palette. For men they’ll feature slim-fit shirts, flat-front trousers, striped-sleeve cardigans and lambskin leather jackets, with studly black leather gloves and gold-rimmed aviator shades for accessories.

“The new uniforms mark the joint efforts of Virgin America and Banana Republic to elevate the style quotient of everyday work-wear,” says a spokesperson for the airline.

As a young boy in Texas, I remember Pucci and Halston designing outfits for Braniff airlines in the 1960s and ’70s.  Ultra-mod and fab.
