It’s the latest tie-up between Australia’s national airline and the celebrated Melbourne-born designer.
Though the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has put a dampener on Qantas’ centenary celebrations, the Australian flag carrier is finding other ways to mark the major milestone. It has just released a limited-edition athleisure-wear collection by prominent Australian fashion designer Martin Grant, bearing various vintage logos of the airline, such as those dating to the fifties and the distinctive flying kangaroo from 1968. Aviation enthusiasts can purchase cashmere sweaters, a hoodie, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and a beach tote, done in Qantas’ signature red and navy palette but also a vivid yellow representing the golden wattle, Australia’s native floral emblem.
In a statement, 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,” he added. “I wanted this collection to be a nod to the past but also a treasured piece for the future.”
The Paris-based fashion designer is a longtime collaborator with Qantas, having previously created uniforms for its pilots, cabin crew, and ground staff, and also first-class pajamas and amenity kits. Grant’s latest capsule collection is now exclusively being sold via the Qantas Rewards Store. T-shirts are priced at AU$150 (26,080 Qantas Points), while the most expensive item in the collection, a cashmere sweater, will set you back AU$425 (73,910 Qantas Points).
