Perfect For: The Nostalgic Globetrotter

Whether it's a trip home for the holidays or a trek to fashionable-again 1960s haunts like Palm Springs or Puerto Vallarta, luggage with a retro touch is very what's-old-is-cool-again. Clockwise from top left: The Globe-Trotter Touring Classics line recalls the days when the phrase "glamorous travel" wasn't an oxymoron. Inspired by Porsche and Aston Martin racing cars, the rolling carry-on and matching air cabin case are made with vulcanized fiber (light as aluminum and strong as leather) and soft Alcantara, an artificial skin used in luxury car interiors. Snow hounds and outdoor types will find there's a home for all their gear in the Burton Wheelie Sub. With 2.8 cubic feet of space, it's the tour bus of rolling bags, and the circle pattern is a throwback to era of lava lamps. Meanwhile, the Pan Am weekend bag, with ventilated zipper bottom section for shoes, will make more mature fliers remember the days when air travel was a happy, sexy affair.
