Delta Introduces New Uniforms Designed by Fashion Designer Zac Posen
Delta Air Lines, world-renowned fashion designer Zac Posen and global lifestyle retailer Lands' End have partnered to create a new uniform collection.
Posen partnered directly with Delta employees from nearly every work group to design the new collection over the last 18 months, developing a functional wardrobe fit for Delta’s diverse employee group and the environments where they work. Employees influenced the design and final selection of each uniform piece.
Delta CEO Ed Bastian hailed the new look, calling Posen a “creative genius”. “Zac’s goal with these uniforms was to exemplify Delta’s great global style and presence,” he said. “This new collection is the future… We’re changing the game in the industry.”
Lands’ End will manufacture and supply the uniforms to approximately 60,000 Delta employees worldwide. All of the colors are airline-themed, including Passport Plum, Cruising Cardinal and Groundspeed Graphite, with accents of Skyline Slate and Traveling Thistle.
Expect to start seeing the uniforms in early 2017.
