EVA Air is introducing new Salvatore Ferragamo amenity kits for all long-haul Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Class business passengers in both hard case and soft bag designs beginning December 1, 2019. EVA has also renewed its collaboration with internationally renowned fashion designer Jason Wu to create a second-generation of inflight sleepwear. And, in the first quarter of 2020, EVA will begin offering brand-new Premium Economy Class amenity kits created by Belgian bag and accessory brand Kipling, giving passengers in its popular, industry-leading cabin between Royal Laurel and Economy enhanced amenities and fashion. More information about EVA’s services, amenities and routes is available at www.evaair.com.
While a few other airlines offered RIMOWA kits exclusively to first class passengers, EVA began raising the bar in 2013 by providing five generations of the sought-after amenities in nine different colors for passengers in its luxurious business cabins. The overnight kits have been popular with passengers and became collectables but the airline’s seven-year cooperation with RIMOWA is coming to a close at the end of November.
“EVA is consistently dedicated to delivering the most comfortable and luxurious passenger services possible,” said EVA President Clay Sun. “We choose top global brands that complement our high standards and work in cooperation with them to create world-class amenities and service items as part of our never-ending mission to innovate and deliver increasingly better flying experiences for our passengers.”
Salvatore Ferragamo Designs Luxurious Amenity Kits
EVA partnered with Italian luxury brand Salvatore Ferragamo to design new hard-case amenity kits in classically elegant black, making them the perfect accessories for the sophisticated dark colored duvet and Royal Laurel/ Premium Laurel Class design. The new Ferragamo amenity kits will be available to all Royal Laurel/Premium Laurel Class passengers, departing from Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) on long-haul flights.
EVA began providing Ferragamo soft-bag amenity kits to Royal Laurel/Premium Laurel passengers on long-haul flights to Taipei at the end of 2018. Now, it is presenting its second-generation of the amenity kits in an eye-catching design, blending Taiwan’s aboriginal rhombus totems with stylish western cultural elements. The soft-sided bags were created to acquaint EVA’s international passengers with Taiwan’s art and culture. The new amenity kits will become available to passengers in mid-December and, as a bonus, come with exclusive Ferragamo key chains.
EVA is also upgrading amenity kit contents with Ferragamo’s best-selling Bianco Di Carrara fragrance by infusing the exclusive aroma into the body lotion, hand cream and lip balm offered inflight. Created by well-known perfumer Alexandra Carlin and launched in 2018, the floral woody musk-scented Bianco Di Carrara has been conceived for women and men. The popular scent’s top notes are Calabrian bergamot, white pepper and ambrette or musk mallow with middle notes of violet, iris and heliotrope and base notes of amber, Tonka bean and white suede.
Jason Wu Presents His Second-Generation PJs
After partnering with prominent fashion designer Jason Wu to create pajamas for Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Class passengers on long-haul flights in 2019, the sleepwear proved to be so popular with passengers that EVA has collaborated with him again for 2020. The airline will present its second-generation Jason Wu pajamas in January. Designed to be comfortable and easy to wear, the sleepwear is made of soft, cozy fabric and features stylish hoodies and comfy pants with handy pockets. Available in medium, large and extra large, the pajamas accommodate different heights and body types and each size comes in a different color.
EVA has partnered with several internationally famous brands over the years to give passengers top-quality amenities and overnight kits. In 2019, EVA’s thoughtful and fashionable designs were honored as the “Best Business Class Amenity Kit,” “Best Premium Economy Class Amenity Kit” and more at the World Travel Catering & Onboard Services EXPO, known as the “Service Suppliers Oscars.”
Exclusive Premium Economy In-Flight Amenities Designed by Kipling and Furla
Marking the first time the Belgian bag and accessory leader has worked with an airline, Kipling’s exclusive Premium Economy Class amenity kits combine the brand’s most iconic design features in a stylishly shaped bag with a monkey key hanger and the landmark Taipei 101 Building. EVA expects the combined design elements to boost Taiwan tourism and become souvenirs for passengers who visit Taiwan. The new Premium Economy Class amenity kits will be offered to passengers, departing from Taipei, starting in the first quarter of 2020.
EVA also is working with Italian fashion brand FURLA to introduce a second-generation overnight kit for Premium Economy Class passengers on long-haul flights to Taipei. The new kits are a larger version of FURLA’s adorable “Owl Bag,” making the new amenity kits both fashionable and practical. EVA will offer its second-generation FURLA Premium Economy amenity kits in the first quarter of 2020.
