We?re of the opinion the globetrotting life must be lived with style and savoir-faire, coupled with a large dose of fun and free spiritedness. While the current state of air travel involves long lines and cramped quarters, we aspire to set the pace when it comes to travel fashion by resurrecting the glamour of the golden era of jet travel; a time when traveling in the sky was not just special, it was momentous.

There were photographers and fashion, celebrities and fine dining. It was the 1950?s; the height of the Mad Men era and air travel was about the journey as much as it was about the destination. It epitomized so many things at once: glamour, technology, exclusivity and celebrity?the future had arrived.
But it hasn?t all but disappeared. If the golden era of jet age travel was about the incredible commercial experience, in today?s time, it is all about the exclusive experience. Momentous travel occasions can still be had behind closed doors of private aircrafts, where chefs prepare custom meals as travelers sit ensconced in plush leather seats or even retire to fully equipped bedrooms. Air hosts and hostesses are trained and more importantly, desire, to provide 5-star service.
Even if private aircraft travel is just a little but out of reach, quick jaunts in semi-private settings, like the FlyBlade helicopter service which alights in New York and lands in the Hamptons, brings glamour back to the skies, with an amped up technology factor as everything is done by tapping into an app. FlyBlade supplies all passengers with champagne and if your flight should be rained out, they guarantee chauffeur service to your destination?but not just in any vehicle, in a Maserati.
Yes, there is still glamour to be found in the skies, and to bring back that romance of the jet age glamour, don?t forget these key items, because as a Shop Latitude shopper, it is up to you to set the example when it comes to traveling in style. Now go kiss the sky.
