Qantas' first class pyjamas are going 'fashion forward' with a new design from Melbourne-born, Paris-based couturier Martin Grant.
These prêt-à-porter PJs borrow subtle cues from the Qantas uniforms such as a dusky French navy, while the matching slippers incorporate a flash of 'Qantas red'.
Woven from 100% cotton, the unisex sleepwear "features a tailored neckline and tapered silhouette to ensure elegant comfort" for first class flyers, Qantas says, and will be issued in a useful drawstring bag.
And we're pleased to announce there are pockets in those pants!
The colour scheme strikes a dramatic different from the charcoal of Qantas' current first class sleepwear (below).
In addition to the PJs and slippers, Grant has also created a new first class amenity kit for passengers at the pointy end.
This sees today's SK-II goodies make way for a line of botanical ASPAR skincare products from Australian company Aurora Spa, including hand cream, lip moisturiser and facial moisturiser.
There's minimal difference between the women's kit...
... and the bag for blokes.
There's also a made-by-Grant '3D eye mask' which cups the eyes to help block out light when it's time to count some first-class sheep.
Grant has become the Flying Kangaroo’s go-to fashionista with his revamp of uniforms for Qantas pilots and crew, but he admits that "designing pyjamas is something completely different for me, creatively.”
"Material breathability, flattering colours and tapered lines were top of mind when coming up with the design, as well as ensuring the pyjama bottoms don’t crawl up the leg and a non-restrictive neckline just as important."
The new pyjamas and amenity kits will be handed out in the first class cabins of Qantas' flagship Airbus A380 from 21 October 2016.
In related news, Sheridan will provide a "new bedding ensemble... using natural fibres in luxury fabrications" for the A380 first class suites from mid-2017.
