The new blue look of the planes of the new airline Ita Airways is not convincing. “Colors are colors and planes are airplanes,” Milanese designer Lella Curiel tells Adnkronos. “For the new flag line, perhaps I would have kept the white with the logo on the tail. But elegance and aesthetic taste do not seem to belong to our age. I do not express any other judgments at the moment. Simply, looking out the window, I wait for take-off … “. “I hope that the new national airline can represent the made in Italy in the world as in the past it had happened for Alitalia” hopes the designer Renato Balestra talking to Adnkronos “but the blue of the planes is a false step, I find it exaggerated. It’s a bit prince of fairy tales “. The designer, who in 1991 designed the uniforms and dresses for Alitalia hostesses, stewards and pilots, added:” After all, even a national airline is a business card, an image of a country. But an airplane cannot turn into a tourist guide or an illustrated book with stylized icons inspired by heritage. I don’t find it elegant. “” At the moment – continued Balestra – mine is a thumbs down. change my mind. But the golden years of Alitalia with its style, its class will not return. “” It is good to standardize the image of Italy with a national blue. from airlines in the Arab world I would have preferred an a burnished silver. Certainly more elegant “. This is what Stefano Dominella, president of Unindustria fashion sector and honorary president of the Gattinoni maison, who in the past dressed the hostesses of Emirates and Mistral Air, told Adnkronos, commenting on the look of the new national airline. “I find even the stylized icons inspired by our heritage useless – added Dominella -. Italy does not need it. An airplane is not a tourist office ”, he concluded.
