Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh Air Unveils Stunning Cabin Crew Uniforms At Paris Fashion Event

Riyadh Air has unveiled a stunning uniform collection for cabin crew ahead of flights taking off next year.

Riyadh Air has teamed up with Saudi fashion designer Ashi to unveil its first-ever fashion collection, during Haute Couture Week in Paris.

The PIF-owned airline took to the runway in style showcasing its stunning new lifestyle collection for its frontline team members in the fashion capital of the world.

The exclusive fashion line is made up of dozens of male and female looks, of which 15 were revealed during the most prestigious fashion week of the year.

The Riyadh Air uniform concepts unveiled in Paris comprised cashmere outerwear, dresses and trousers made of fine wools, custom leather footwear, amethyst earrings, and iconic pillbox hats, all of which are inspired by 1950s airline fashion, widely considered as the “golden age” in aviation, but with bold, modern styling for a future-forward brand.

For the new fashion line, Ashi has cultivated new colour tones for the looks, including the chic and elegant Electric Amethyst for womenswear, and Dark Amethyst for menswear, of which the full collection is scheduled for launch early next year.

The unique amethyst shades pay homage to Saudi Arabia’s stunning lavender fields and are rooted within Riyadh Air’s primary colour.

The Saudi fashion designer took inspiration from the Riyadh Air aircraft livery to deliver completely bespoke colours for the new timeless collection.

They were also carefully designed to complement the cabin interiors which will be revealed later this year.

Ten womenswear looks were showcased on the Paris runway, each of which were complemented by accessories such as trademark shoes and hats. Five menswear looks were also unveiled during the first-of-its-kind Haute Couture Week showcase.

The fashion collection, to be worn by Riyadh Air cabin crew, pilots, concierges, and airport agents, can be changed seasonally, keeping the looks fresh all year round.

Ashi cleverly included distinctive Riyadh Air elements within the concepts, such as the iconic canopy twist found in the Riyadh Air brand, and incorporated them in the lines, shadows and the silhouettes of the new fashion line.

The coats and jackets worn at the Paris launch also include the same modern lines as seen on the Riyadh Air logo.

Ashi has been collaborating with Riyadh Air for nearly a year on the design of the fashion line with the colour development taking over six months alone.

Riyadh Air is on track to make its maiden flight in 2025.
