Flight 001

With aisles of gorgeous travel accessories arranged in an über-stylized setting (think walnut paneling, opaque Plexiglas, and Pirelli tile), Flight 001 revives the super-glam travel experience of the 1950s. Named after Pan-Am's infamous Flight 001 -- which flew between San Francisco and New York by way of Tokyo, Hong Kong, Delhi, Frankfurt, and five other cities -- this funky travel store sells everything a finicky jet-setter could want. From tangerine-colored leather passport holders to pocket-size cameras, handy penlights to prepacked toiletry kits, Flight 001 offers a sophisticated twist on the standard travel amenities. But even with its emphasis on form, Flight 001 hasn't forgotten function: It also sells a range of sensible items such as maps, guidebooks, and luggage tags.
