Made in France; Air France; a history of uniforms

The first commercial air hostess uniforms in the 1930s resembled nurses' uniforms. They were designed to reassure customers embarking on voyages on the then still relatively new mode of transport. Later, the uniforms borrowed motifs from the military and cruise liners. Over the years, the uniforms of Air France have been a constant symbol of French elegance.

Visit Noilly Prat in Marseillan

Noilly Prat is one of the most drinks in the world. Joseph Noilly, a herbalist, developed the first formula in 1813, 50 years before the now archetypal vermouth, Martini. "White" Noilly Prat is the archetype of dry, straw-coloured French vermouth. Noilly Prat now makes Red and Ambre vermouths as well, introduced in the 1960s and 1980s, but they are less widely known. Produced in the small seaside town of Marseillan, there are organised daily visits as well as a large shop.
