By day, airplanes are workhorses carting us from A to B, but by night, their flamboyant paint schemes are often worthy of centre stage on a different runway – of the fashion kind.

Aeronautical pieces have popped up on the catwalk this winter – and why not? After all, planes are a large blank canvas to make a bold statement and create a lasting impression.

The airline fashion desks are reviving the glamour in travel, mixing up corporate styles with one-off-collections – from Swiss Air’s psychedelic paint scheme, to Russian airline, Kuban’s twist on flower power.

They’ve retained their timeless looks too. Their tail fins, a focal point of their look are accessorised with emblems that have catapulted airlines into household names, from Aer Lingus’ shamrock, to Lufthansa’s stylised crane and Singapore Airlines’ golden bird.

See if you can recognise some of the guests scoping out our “winter heritage collection”: past meets future.
