The Globe-Trotter Centenary Collection from J. Crew is a bright, sunny series of luggage that will quickly stand out from the drab sea of black and gray suitcases at the airport. While J. Crew sells black and white versions of the pieces featured above in the gallery, my favorite is the mimosa version, which aligns perfectly with Pantone's color pick for 2009.
Pieces in the J. Crew Globe-Trotter Centenary Collection feature a cotton lining, leather trim and a Vulcan Fiber shell.
