From scenic “flights to nowhere” to the sale of fully-stocked bar carts, Qantas continues to push its creative boundaries when it comes to making up for the loss of income during the ongoing pandemic. Most recently, the Australian flag carrier announced a limited-edition athleisure collaboration with prominent Australian fashion designer Martin Grant.
Featuring the airline’s vintage logos dating back to the fifties and the iconic flying kangaroo from 1968, the collection includes a hoodie, t-shirts, sweatshirts, cashmere sweaters, and a beach tote. Designed in the airline’s signature red and navy palette, along with vivid yellow accents to represent the golden wattle—the country’s floral emblem, the styles are equally suited for travels and lounging at home.
As a longtime partner of the airline, the Paris-based designer had previously created uniforms for Qantas’ crew, as well as first-class pyjamas and amenity kits.
Commenting on the collection, Grant said: “This collection is all about classic shapes, comfortable styles, and materials that are kind on the environment. But the hero of the designs are the iconic logos that evoke so many fond memories for Australians.”
“The Qantas brand is embedded in the history of our country, I wanted this collection to be a nod to the past but also a treasured piece for the future.” He added.
Prices for the capsule collection start at AU$150 or the equivalent of 26,080 Qantas Points and can be purchased here.
