Each of Karl Hab’s photographs is an invitation to travel through time. For 24 dreamy hours, the photographer takes us on a journey to find out more about the uniforms that have marked the history of Air France, past and present, captured in legendary or ultra-modern aircraft and settings.
Designed by Dior, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Carven, Louis Féraud, Nica Ricci and Christian Lacroix, the Air France uniforms chosen by the photographer are displayed to stunning effect in unique settings.
Karl Hab focuses his lens on the world of aviation that is so dear to his heart, revealing hidden moments and details that tell the story of the airline’s different eras.
The very essence of Air France, combining elegance, cutting-edge technology and innovation, comes to life in every shot.
This book is a celebration of the French art of travel crafted by Air France since 1933. It reveals its timeless heritage from a resolutely contemporary perspective. It also bears witness to its ambition and vision for the future – to offer the best of France around the world.
