Qantas unveils limited edition fashion collection with Martin Grant

First it was $787 flights to nowhere, then you could buy the airline’s old booze trolleys stocked with your favourite wine for close to $1000.

Well now, Qantas has dipped their wings into the rag trade with a line of luxurious cashmere sweaters, beach totes and hoddies – with some items costing $425 a pop.

The Australian airline announced on Wednesday its new line of exclusive garments, from hoodies to sweaters, T-shirts and even a $350 beach tote, will go on sale to mark their centenary year.

The new range is designed by Martin Grant, the Aussie behind the airline’s pilot uniforms as well as their First Class pyjamas and amenity kits. This range of luxe athleisure-wear, he says, featrures the carrier’s vintage logos to mark the flying kangaroo’s centenary year.

“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,” Grant said.

But if you’re in the market for a bargain buy – like the time the airline sold off their famed business class PJs for $25 – you’ll be a little disappointed.

The Cashmere sweater will set you back $425 or 73,910 Qantas Points, a Hoodie will cost a cool $275 and their grey sweatshirt a smidge less at $250, while a simple t-shirt will cost you $150.

Last month, following the airline’s success of selling excess business class pyjama sets, Qantas started flinging fully kitted out booze trolleys for $925.

After retiring the last of its Boeing 747 jets earlier this year, the airline had 1000 of their galley carts stocked and ready to find a new home.

The sale of the new leisure collection comes after Qantas launched its ‘flight to nowhere’ across Australia on the weekend.

With seats starting from $787 for the seven-hour journey over Australia, the 150 passenger flight sold out in a record 10 minutes.

Dubbed the ‘Great Southern Land’ scenic flight, passengers sat on board the airline’s famed ‘Emily’ Boeing 787 Dreamliner on October 10, which is normally reserved for international flying.

The flight soared over some of Australia’s most iconic landmarks including Uluru, Kata Tjuta, the Whitsundays, Gold Coast, Byron Bay and of course Sydney Harbour.
