Believe it or not there was once a time when people looked forward to air travel. They dressed for it and talked almost as excitedly about the thrill of flying as they did where they were going. That was the 50′s and 60′s. I’m sure this is true because I saw it on an episode of “Mad Men”. Nowadays however it’s all sweats and cheap luggage and a rush to get through security checkpoints.
Samsonite’s Black Label does its part to bring some of the refinement back to travel; witness the label’s present collaboration with the famed design team of Viktor & Rolf. The new luggage series is available in either a rather retro looking red or blue aeroplane motif or traditional black. Rapture! One less reason to lament flying, perhaps.
