SCENE | Departures & Arrivals


Photo of Mick and Bianca Jagger at London Airport (now Heathrow) by David Stroud, 1972.

When we think of air travel in the 20th century, stylish images of well-heeled passengers flood our minds. Today, when I think of air travel, I immediately think of dressing strategically. Here's a look back at some tomboy style in the departure and arrival terminals decades before TSA had its way with our outfits. And in case you missed it: the Tomboy Style x Paper Chase custom luggage tags based on airline tags of the 1960s.
