Designer: Alexander Girard
In the mid-1960s, Alexander Girard designed this richly hued throw blanket as part of an astounding 17,543 item brand identity system—from logo to lounge furniture to bag tags—for Braniff International Airways. Recreated today by Pendleton—whose blankets Girard avidly collected—the designs are crafted from a blend of 82 percent naturally breathable, wrinkle resistant, high-quality virgin wool and 18 percent cotton.
Pendleton's reproduction of the Girard Throw—designed as part of his overall brand identity system for Braniff International Airways—are offered in a palette of bold plaids including natural and white, white and black, orange and fuchsia, and teal and aqua. These exquisite blankets imbue living spaces with color and style—just as they did for Braniff's fleet in 1965.
