French fashion designer Pierre Balmain (1914–1982) created this outfit called the Tung Hoi (Eastern Sea) uniform for Cathay Pacific Airways. He mixed the traditionalism of the suit’s peaked lapels, cuff ranks, and dropped hemline with the contemporary look of the brightly colored, wave-pattern print blouse. An alpine-style, black felt hat coordinates with the skinny belt. This uniform was issued from 1974 to 1983. "#FashionInFlight: A History of Airline Uniform Design" is on display, pre-security, in the Aviation Museum. http://bit.ly/FashionInFlight1 This image was posted on August 30, 2017.
