Balloon fashion: a long tradition
Since the creation of hot-air balloon events and thus with the revival in the 1960s of these strange machines that fly at the speed of the wind in the direction of the wind, pilots and their crews like to distinguish themselves. There was the era of the flight suit covered with patches, the cap (very useful to protect from the heat of the burner). Then the famous “pin’s” in the colors of your balloon that you exchanged after the flights. At Pilâtre de Rozier, the boutique has always been well-supplied. With polo, tee shirt, shirt, sweater, pants, shorts and even underpants. But the must is undoubtedly the multi-pockets pilot’s vest. When I opened my cupboards this winter, I revisited 40 years of my life as a pilot from Albuquerque to Saga, passing by St Petersburg. And so many colorful jackets. The 2021 collection promises to be great. To discover on the event or on our website in a few months.
