With a new year comes a fresh start. For RIMOWA, that includes refreshing its offering of colours available for its Essential line—the lightweight polycarbonate luggage series that's just as popular (and distinct) as its aluminium range. Embodying a hopefully more positive and upbeat 2022, RIMOWA introduces Azure and Flamingo.
As with every seasonal range of colours, the new additions are derived from a selected destination. From last season's Asiatic tropics of Thailand, RIMOWA continues on to Tanzania. The East African country is celebrated and known for its wide expanse of natural beauty—from being home to some of the most famous wildlife to the grandeur of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa.
Flamingo is the boldest of the two new colours. Getting its inspiration from the millions of flamingoes that are common in northern Tanzania's lakes, Flamingo is a super saturated tone of red that sits somewhere between coral and vermillion. The cool tone of Azure is a complementary contrast that's a bit more subdued but not much less impactful, especially on the Essential luggage—a piece that would be hard to miss on the conveyor belt.
Both Azure and Flamingo are available in the Essential Cabin, Check-In L, and Trunk Plus luggage sizes, just in time for the first few travels of 2022. But if travelling to another country is not exactly in the cards yet, the new colours are also part of RIMOWA's ever-growing lifestyle series. Selected pieces include polycarbonate iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max cases, a cardholder, and even the crossbody Personal bag in Azure.
The RIMOWA range of travel and lifestyle accessories in Azure and Flamingo will be available in boutiques from January 2022.
