Up, Up and Away with TWA and Savoir Faire

In the 60’s if the Jet-set wanted to travel anywhere they usually did it with TWA or Pan Am. No other airlines did more for modern day jet travel than these two.

TWA had hired illustrator David Klein to produce a series of posters highlighting their many exotic locations around the world. These posters were emblematic and quintessential to the 1960’s jet-age. Bright colours mixed with sometimes almost abstract images portrayed travel as exciting and fun.

Even cargo didn’t go unnoticed, and whatever you needed shipped whether it be horse, shoes or film, it was all done in style with TWA.

The posters have become iconic and MOMA has included the New York poster below in its permanent collection.

Off the Cuff

I am just loving these vintage cufflinks from Courreges! The silver with the red and blue enamel stripes create just the right amount of impact, especially with a white or a baby blue shirt.
