Next time you travel for a conference or off-site meeting, avoid showing up with luggage that looks like it’s ready to retire from the road. Spruce up your professional image with one of these Flight 001 (www.flight001.com) models. They look professional, but won’t blend in with all the other black bags at the carousel:

• For a sharp image: China Cove Trolley by Halsea ($325). Try the rose-colored laminated canvas with leather details on the outside; fabulous pink satin lines the inside.
