The one-of-a-kind premium luggage is the first collaboration between Rimowa and Off-White, a continuation in celebrating the 120th anniversary of the premium luggage brand.
The distinctively original transparent polycarbonate carry-on case plays on Off-White’s design style that separates the covetable from the mundane, and banks on irony. A brazen, yet playful response to today’s obsessive talk of privacy culture on surveillance and anonymity, the transparent design hones in on the now and the next.
More than just an experimentation in which the designers study one’s emotional connection to their “personal belongings”, the Rimowa x Off-White luggage not only carries the latter’s branding detailing upon the visual language – the accented black handles, wheels and labelling on the locks and telescopic handle, it is also packed with Rimowa’s key designs in quality and innovation that have made the brand what it is for the past 120 years, such as the silent Multiwheel system for optimum manoeuvrability, and TSA combination locks.
While it’s based on the Rimowa Essential model, the Rimowa x Off-White case has no interior lining due to its transparent design, but is instead filled with the Flex-Divider system in black, and customised bags for more efficient and modest packing.
Not only that, the luggage also comes with an exclusive transparent amenity kit with an additional set of wheels in Off-White orange, further emphasising the overarching concept of the special edition case.
The Rimowa x Off-White case will premiere today, during the Off-White men’s fashion show in Paris, where selected friends of the brands will be gifted a personalised black aluminium case each, emblazoned with the Off-White style label “Personal Belongings”.
The rest of the world will have the opportunity to purchase the case for themselves from June 25 onwards in selected Rimowa and Off-White stores, as well as online at www.rimowa.com
