{1968 Design Classic by Pierre Balmain for Singapore Airlines Stewardesses}

As international consultants we have been several times aboard a Singapore Airlines flight. In-between we saw numerous times the Singapore Airlines Stewardesses in their beautiful uniforms, especially during our stopover at Singapore airport. In 1968, French Couturier Pierre Balmain was asked by Malaysian Singapore Airlines to design uniforms for their cabin crew. Balmain based his design on the traditional Malay sarong-kebaya. Very much like the Indonesian sarong-kebaya. Below, you will also find a link to my post about me wearing my silk Indonesian Sarong Kebaya...
Pierre Balmain designed borders around the hems, neck and cuffs, using cut edges from traditional batik fabric. Each uniform is fully tailored, with a minimum of two fittings with each crew member for her 4 new uniforms annually.
Singapore Airlines is also the world's most awarded airline
The epitome of Asian grace and hospitality, the Singapore Girl has been synonymous with Singapore Airlines
Singapore Airlines with the heavenly destination of Bali.
I have been to Bali twice and Pieter went there on vacation with his daughter Liz.
For both of us fond memories. 
We also went to Singapore several times.
The French L'Internaut showed the Singapore Girl recently in The Most Beautiful Stewardess Uniforms 
The above text is being translated from French.
In addition to being very pretty, the company Singapore Airlines hostesses radiate in this uniform by Pierre Balmain, a French couturier. Since 1968, the outfit remains unchanged and will not go out of fashion: how can one not fall in love with this pretty floral bolero in midnight blue?
Have you ever seen those pretty sarong kebayas from Singapore Girl?

      You never know when you will end up going to Singapore; it is a beautiful little country and one of the safest in the world. Designer Balmain did an incredible job and his design seems to remain forever.

    Yes I too love to fly with Singapore Airlines.
    Their hostesses are elegant and charming - and we've enjoyed staying in Singapore twice.
    A wonderfully clean city thanks to Mr Lee Kwan Yew.

      Singapore Airlines is exceptional that's for sure! And you are right about the wonderfully clean city; they are an example for the entire world.
      All those orchids at their airport make you almost believe you've arrived in heaven...
      Glad you had the pleasure of flying with them too and for being in Singapore twice!

      This is great for bringing fond memories from the past back to live! That way we also get to know each other a little bit more. Glad that through your Father's travel agency you got to fly with your Mum on Singapore Airlines too. Yes, it was Couturier Pierre Balmain who designed their uniforms. It is living proof again that such designer garments are timeless since they still are being used today.
      Glad your daughter also got to use Singapore Airlines and thank you for such a lovely comment with insight into your lives!
      Hugs and happy weekend.

      Abbiamo avuto l'opportunità di volare con la compagnia aere Singpore al nostro lavoro. Non in vacanza; Intendiamoci! Essere consulenti internazionali, era piuttosto una sfida con tali distanze enormi per viaggiare da e per. Ma abbiamo divertitolo perché amiamo persone e noi potremmo aiutare alcuni paesi fortunati per avere più efficienza e migliore produzione. Rende per tempi felici di guardare indietro e abbiamo gli amici ampia del mondo perché non siamo mai stati dopo i soldi...
      Abbracci a voi, siamo appena tornati da otto giorni in Florida; una vacanza tanto necessaria!

  13. What a beautiful uniform! I can see it never goes out of fashion. I've never been on Singapore Airlines but have heard many good things, like excellent service. I've never been to Bali or Singapore. It must have been such a great trip for you. My parents traveled to Singapore before and they were impressed how clean they kept the city. Would love to visit there one day :-)

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Toch is het hun uniform and ze bewegen er zeer gracieus in. Het zijn ook wel de meest elegante wezens met de kleinste taillematen die het geeft. De jaren dat we in Indonesië woonden en werkten, en vaker ook in Singapore kwamen, vonden we wel dat de vrouwen daar erg elegant gekleed gaan! Ze zijn van nature al gracieuzer...
      Fijne zondag en liefs,
      Mariette

  18. Now that's how flying should be! Most airlines herd you on like cattle these days and you're lucky if you get a bag of pretzels (no more peanuts!).

    Those uniforms are gorgeous! How wonderful that they've stuck with it for all these years. I've never been to Singapore but had friends that went years ago. They had 2 little blonde hair, blue eyed daughters and they said everyone stopped to stare at them because they're not accustomed to seeing light hair!

    1. Dearest Victoria,
      Thank you for your complimenting remark and indeed, that's how flying 'still' should be like! Courtesy is such a rare thing to encounter nowadays and seldom do they go out of their way in order to provide you some comfort. This proves again that great designer outfits are really timeless. Oh, don't explain me about having blue eyes and blond hair in a country where all are dark haired! They often did touch my hair to check if it was real... Luckily nobody did poke my big blue eyes!
      Happy Sunday to you and hugs,
      Mariette

  19. Dearest Mariette;
    Oh My!!! I remember posting that my dream was to become a stewardess (at the time) when young. I was attracted by the drama about them p;) How pretty they are in their uniform♡♡♡ I had to give up the dream as I'm too small for the job. Haha, how pity Japanese airline or else had lost wonderful one if she had been tall enough, hehe.

    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

    1. Dearest Miyako,
      Oh, you with your ability to speak perfect English would have been quite an asset to any airline! But it is in no way a glamorous job; very demanding and hard working. Being constantly in the air, with only a day or so to rest up in-between trans oceanic flights is tough! They deserve their wages; that's for sure!
      Hugs to you dear Japanese friend and I hope your Birthday was a lovely one.
