Rimowa collaborates with Off-White for transparent luggage

This is the first time Rimowa to collaborate with Virgil Abloh and their collaborative creation of suitcase is brazen.

Without a doubt, Virgil Abloh and his label Off-White are a cult now and anything has to do with him is always coveted including the coming Rimowa X Off-White collaboration.

In celebration of its 120th anniversary, luxury travel brand Rimowa and streetwear label Off-White have come together for a limited edition luggage collection, featuring a transparent design!

Made with transparent polycarbonate, the Rimowa x Off-White carry-on luggage juxtaposes its clear design with black details such as accented black handles, wheels, labelling on the locks and telescopic handle.

It is a playful take to highlight the privacy culture of surveillance and anonymity in today’s world.

This case has replaced the interior lining with their own design of Flex-Divider system and customised bags to keep things in neat and modest order.

It also enhanced with Rimowa’s silent Multiwheel system, TSA combination locks, an exclusive transparent amenity kit for an efficient performance and even an additional set of wheels in Off-White orange that you can swap out with.

On the collaboration, Virgil Abloh says, “This collaboration was an experimentation where we studied travelling and one’s emotional connection to their own “personal belongings”. This project had been in the works for a while and now the accumulation of various ideas from over a long period of time will be released to the world.”

 

Be sure to check out Off-White’s men fashion show on 20th June 2018 for the premiere of the suitcase.

Get your hands on the suitcase from 25th June in select Rimowa & Off-White’s stores, Rimowa Europe’s website, select wholesale partners and Wechat pop-up store.
