Etihad Airways has partnered with Armani/Casa on a collection which has been designed by Giorgio Armani.
Starting December 2022, the products from the new Etihad and Armani/Casa collaboration known as ‘The Constellation Collection’ and inspired by the stars will debut across select aircraft from the UAE national carrier’s fleet.
The Constellation Collection includes a new dining service which features ceramics, glassware, cutlery and serving ware, as well as premium textiles for a revamped inflight experience in its business class cabins.
The dining service features objects made with mixed materials and embossed patterns. The airline said that the colour palette of the collection “reflects the surroundings of Abu Dhabi; dark green inspired by the region’s date palm trees, aquamarine representing the beauty of the mangroves and slate to symbolise the modernity of the iconic Abu Dhabi skyline.”
Sustainability is front and centre with the new collection. Etihad says that the material used has reduced equipment weight by up to 10 per cent, resulting in less fuel burn and fewer emissions by its aircraft.
The premium textiles range includes a matching pillowcase and duvet set will be available to business class guests and will feature Armani/Casa signature designs.
Guests on longer flights can also avail of the new memory foam mattress which can be rolled out on the fully-flat bed in business class.
“Today we unveil a completely new and elevated way to fly with Etihad Airways – an experience defined by our Emirati heritage yet shaped by a clear vision for our future. Known globally for its Italian luxury and elegance, Armani/Casa is the ideal brand partner to create an unparalleled level of bespoke service and refinement for our guests,” said Tony Douglas, group chief executive officer at Etihad.
