During the 1950s and 60s, being a member of an airline crew meant status and allure to the masses. The crew wore appealing uniforms but as time went on the uniforms presented on-board had a lack of appeal even though practical. Richard Branson, CEO of Virgin Atlantic, is not one to follow the airline industry’s trends and goes the extra step to success.

Teaming up with Banana Republic for the fifth anniversary of Virgin America, a new 'utility chic' collection will be worn by the crew beginning August 8th. Word is out that glamour will be back in the skies.

The new functional but fashionable collection took 18 months to come up with what is being presented. The fabrics were picked to remain wrinkle-free. Crew staff’s apparel will look as crisp and fresh at the end of the flight as the beginning with wrinkle free spandex blends. All pieces match Virgin America’s theme of red, white and/or blue and the men and women will look sharp. 

The women’s collection truly stands out and will have any fashionista scream that it is a must-have. There's a classic pencil skirt, trousers and slim dress in navy, and a red trench coat and leather jacket.  Accessories include silk print scarves and slim trim belts. 

A modified collection, such as aviator sunglasses and men's and women's trench coats, will be made available to the consumer. Order them on the in-flight entertainment system when flying Virgin America or find them at Banana Republic.
 
One designer handbag that will take a trench coat to the sky with class is an authentic Hermes Birkin Handbag.

Nothing can match the high quality and functional Birkin bag with handmade craftsmanship, ultimate status symbol of luxury.‘Death on the Nile’ and ‘Evil Under the Sun’ actress, Jane Birkin is the lucky girl it is named for.  

A pre-owned Hermes Birkin is not an off the assembly line handbag. This used Birkin is crafted in stunning and grainy tan leather and gold tone hardware. The bag has a signature Hermes lock and is locked by closing the top flaps over buckle loops.

This winning handbag features a double top handle strap for hand carry. The base contains protective metal feet to protect the striking bag.
The interior has one zipper compartment and one flat open pocket. 

Celebrities fight among themselves to get a hold of an authentic Hermes Birkin Bag, and the lucky ones include Anne Hathaway, Renee Zellweger, Kate Hudson, Angelina Jolie, and of course the gal it was named after.
