EVA Air is to introduce new Salvatore Ferragamo amenity kits for all Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Class business passengers from the beginning of December, following the expiration of its seven-year cooperation with RIMOWA at the end of November.
EVA began offering RIMOWA kits in 2013 by providing five generations of the sought-after amenities in nine different colours in its luxurious business cabin.
EVA partnered with Italian luxury brand Salvatore Ferragamo to design new hard-case amenity kits in black, making them the ‘perfect accessories for the sophisticated dark coloured 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 on long-haul flights.
EVA began providing Ferragamo soft-bag amenity kits to Royal Laurel/Premium Laurel Class on long-haul flights to Taipei from the end of 2018. Now, it is presenting its second-generation of the amenity kits, blending Taiwan’s aboriginal rhombus totems with stylish western cultural elements. The new soft-sided bags were created to acquaint EVA’s passengers from around the globe with Taiwan’s art and culture. As a bonus, the new amenity kits come with exclusive Ferragamo key chains and will become available to passengers in mid-December.
EVA is also upgrading the amenity kit contents with Ferragamo’s Bianco Di Carrara fragrance by infusing the exclusive aroma into the body lotion, lip balm and hand cream offered in-flight. 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.
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, the first time it 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. The new amenity kits will be offered to passengers, departing from Taipei.
EVA is also 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 “Owl Bag”. EVA will offer its second-generation FURLA Premium Economy Class amenity kits in the first quarter of 2020.
After partnering with prominent fashion designer Jason Wu to create pyjamas for Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Class passengers on long-haul flights in 2019, EVA is repeating the collaboration to create a second-generation of in-flight sleepwear, to be introduced in January.
Designed to be comfortable and easy to wear, the sleepwear is made of a soft, cosy fabric with draw-string collar and trouser pockets. Available in medium, large and extra-large, the pyjamas accommodate different heights and body types and each size comes in a different colour.
EVA president, Clay Sun explained: “EVA is consistently dedicated to delivering the most comfortable and luxurious passenger services possible. 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.”
