Virgin Galactic, Adidas Team On Stylish Spacesuits

Mojave-based Virgin Galactic, the commercial spaceflight and tourism venture of Sir Richard Branson, may not be able to deliver you to space just quite yet. But, when they do, it apparently will be in style. Virgin Galactic and Adidas, via its Japanese design house, Y-3, is designing fashionable flight suits for Virgin Galactic's future astronauts and pilots, the companies said today. Y-3, which is led by Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto, will design garments not only for those astronauts and pilots, but also operations and maintenance teams, the companies said, including special Adidas footwear.
