That air travel was once a thing of the future has become our nostalgia for the past. Think of those hostess uniforms that were structured and sexy in a Jetsons kind of way and it signals a Golden Age of travel where flying to New York was akin to our flying into space. Exciting, luxurious, the future realised. Sebastien Peigne’s aerodynamic collection for Mugler fall 2013 swathed models, the air hostesses of the Paris fashion week runway (pardon the pun), in shapes that felt both retro and yet fresh.
And from smooth ski mask head coverings to voluminous mink with silk porthole cutouts, Mugler’s first-class traveller was cocooned in luxury. There were pieces that sang out a siren’s song of 1960s whimsy and pieces that the modern woman would snap-up in a heartbeat. Perhaps creative director Nicola Formichetti summed it up best: “She could step off that plane back into the sixties, or walk through the sliding doors into tomorrow.”
