A TOUCH OF LUX­URY

Simply You Style - - Simply You | Travel -

For most of us, air travel still car­ries a fris­son of ex­cite­ment but in a world of no-frills price wars and bud­get air­lines, it has lost some of its glam­our. Not so for pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling with Qan­tas, who can now ex­pect a touch of lux­ury when they board their in­ter­na­tional flight. The air­line recog­nises the dif­fer­ence sleek crew uni­forms, lux­u­ri­ous amenity kits and comfy py­ja­mas make to pas­sen­gers’ in-flight ex­pe­ri­ence and has part­nered with sev­eral lux­ury fash­ion and beauty brands to up the style ante.

Busi­ness class pas­sen­gers start their jour­ney with an en­vyin­duc­ing Kate Spade amenity kit for women and Jack Spade kit for men. The colour­ful pouches – which dou­ble as a stylish make-up bag or stor­age for smart­phone ca­bles and charg­ers long af­ter you’ve landed – con­tain every­thing you need to keep fresh dur­ing your flight, in­clud­ing ASPAR by Aurora Spa Sweet Or­ange & Shea Hand Cream, Vanilla & Or­ange Lip Mois­turiser and Ul­tra Hy­drat­ing Face Mois­turiser, cour­tesy of Qan­tas’ exclusive deal with the lux­ury Aus­tralian beauty brand. And it doesn’t stop there. When it’s time to get some shut-eye, cus­tomers can pull on a pair of cot­ton-rich py­ja­mas which have been re­designed to feature a long-sleeve raglan-style top and draw­string pants in a more re­laxed fit.

First class pas­sen­gers are treated to sleep­wear and amenity kits de­signed by Paris-based Aus­tralian fash­ion de­signer Martin Grant, who also de­signed the Qan­tas crew and pi­lot uni­forms. Grant’s uni­sex navy and black trim py­ja­mas are 100 per cent cot­ton, feature a tai­lored neck­line and tapered sil­hou­ette and even come with match­ing slip­pers. The male and female amenity kits con­tain a range of be­spoke hy­drat­ing ASPAR by Aurora Spa prod­ucts and also feature Martin Grant-de­signed travel socks and an eye mask that cups the eyes for op­ti­mum com­fort and light blockage.

You don’t have to be sit­ting in busi­ness or first to get your hands on a cov­etable travel ac­ces­sory, how­ever. A range of four lux­ury lim­ited-edi­tion silk scarves is avail­able to buy, thanks to Qan­tas’ on­go­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion with edgy Aus­tralian fash­ion brand Bird & Knoll. The scarves feature im­ages of Qan­tas des­ti­na­tions, in­clud­ing gi­raffes graz­ing in South Africa, and re­tail for $132 each. At 90cm by 90cm, they’re not only the per­fect in-flight wrap, they’ll also im­bue you with a sense of ad­ven­ture. So now you know you’ll ar­rive in style, all you have to do is choose where to go. qan­tas.com
