There’s a reason the ad heavyweights at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce get glassy eyed at the thought of landing an airline account. Few industries represented the glamour, optimism, and excess of the mid-century America better than the one that ferried us across the country in stylish, stainless steel jets. As sleek as some of the stewardess outfits showcased for the airborne set, the forthcoming book Airline: Style at 30,000 Feet by British designer and author Keith Lovegrove chronicles the design history of airlines. The excerpts below offer a glance backward to a time when luxury, not baggage fees, were the norm.

For its Spring/Summer 2013 collection, Maison Kitsuné channelled Southern California prep to achieve a look that's as versatile as it is distinctive. So it makes perfect sense that they brought in Oliver Peoples to collaborate on their first foray into the eyewear game. Inspired by 1950s minimal elegance, the two unisex models (called "Tokyo" and "Paris") are each available in four different colorways. We especially love the removable clip-on sunglasses on the Tokyo. These are available tomorrow in Kitsuné and Oliver Peoples locations, just in time for a last-minute gift for your four-eyed special someone.
