No one understands the needs of cabin crew quite like Michel Decremer, owner of the Carmi shops that have worked with Brussels Airlines for decades. Luckily for us, he is one of Atelier Content’s biggest fans. He immediately made the link between the iconic airline and our iconic shoes. He mentored us throughout the entire project and we could not be prouder of the finished results. We are deeply grateful for his support and expertise.


Brussels Airlines prefers understated designs in the same dark blue of the uniform. Atelier Content only makes leather shoes. At the request of the airline, we used an Italian vegan variant made from natural grape waste for this project. Quite a challenge for our Italian craftsmen who work in small, traditional ateliers. Vegan leather was new to them. Convincing them of the merits of this innovative material, and familiarising them with its properties, was no easy task. Fortunately, we love a challenge. It keeps us on our toes!

The shoes will be handmade exclusively for Brussels Airlines and will launch as part of the uniform in spring 2024. They are not commercially available and carry the label: ‘Nele Content for Brussels Airlines’.

Who knows, you might spot them on your next flight!
