Trend Spotlight: Luxury at high altitude
Inflight shopping is getting fancier by the mile. Through May 5, Fabergé, the fine jewellery brand noted for its egg designs, is offering a limited-edition collection to passengers flying on select VisaJet planes. The collaboration is the latest to take luxury shopping to high altitudes. Earlier this year, elite passengers flying New York to London routes on Virgin Atlantic could purchase works of art by British artist and former Banksy collaborator Ben Eine. (Forbes)
