We'll have to add this to our list of places to shop at PHL: Pilot & Captain, the travel-themed product line from Philadelphia graphic design house The Heads of State, is opening a store within the Philadelphia International Airport, marking the label's first venture into permanent brick-and-mortar. "We're looking forward to a more direct interaction with customers, as well as unveiling a more varied product line tailored to the airport experience," the label's co-founders, Dustin Summers and Jason Kernevich, tell us.
Wanderlust-inducing totes, prints, and tees with be on the shelves, along with new additions to the brand's regular cargo—candles, postcards, notebooks, and glassware—that will debut exclusively at PHL before landing anywhere else. Jet-setting readers can seek out Pilot & Captain's store within the airport's Terminal C when it opens early May.
