Mart Visser designs new KLM uniforms

Next year all KLM stewardesses will be wearing outfits by top Dutch designer Mart Visser, the Telegraaf reports on Friday.

Visser, known for his form-fitting garments, told the paper he is delighted a ‘mega brand’ like KLM has hooked up with an Amsterdam designer.
The current uniforms come from the Nina Ricci stable and are almost 20 years old.
Visser has designed a capsule wardrobe of 11 items, including jacket, trousers, two styles of skirt and a scarf. ‘In total we have used 150 km of fabric,’ the designer tells the paper.
The new uniform uses Visser’s fondness for accentuating the body and has ‘a bit of sexiness thrown in’, Visser says.
But the finished products are nothing to do with fashion – they are corporate attire, he says. ‘It is much harder to design corporate clothes than couture.’
The uniforms have to be comfortable and fit sizes 32 to 52 as well as being suitable for all seasons.
Although Visser was largely given a free reign, there were some stipulations. And one of these was that Visser used the sam KLM trademark blue material.
