Airports are one of the finest places to people-watch. From pantsuit-donning travelers on business trips to khaki-clad families of four on summer vacation, one thing everyone has in common is luggage. Whether stored under the plane or above the cabin, a suitcase, duffel bag or backpack is a necessity. But it is also an accessory, an 
accoutrement that speaks volumes about your sense of style. So, the next time you pack for a flight, express yourself and make the choice to emphasize the art in departure.
