Every detail at RIMOWA has been carefully thought out and executed with clear intent. The signature aluminium construction for example—aside from being sturdy—has natural, corrosion-resistant qualities and is fully recyclable. With every journey that you take, the luggage changes with every bump, scratch and imprint that's unique to your journey—a poetic reminder of the lifetime of travels with your RIMOWA luggage.
With its polycarbonate series, the focus is on the material's lightweight nature yet strong resistance against incredible amounts of external forces. It's a trait that RIMOWA discovered and made full use of by being the first to create suitcases out of the material. And of course, every RIMOWA creation is aesthetically pleasing, hallmarked by the grooved design.
In time for summer travels, RIMOWA has expanded on its polycarbonate RIMOWA Essential series. While the previous options for polycarbonate in gloss centred around deep hues—red, blue, black, green and white—the latest colourways for the season, are brighter and in pastel shades.
Each of the new colours were specifically chosen because they represent remote locations that can usually only be seen from above. Saffron is reminiscent of the fields of canola flowers in Tuscany, Sage is taken from the greenery of the Lake District in northeast England, Slate is derived from Indonesia's chalky mines, and Coral is the colour inspired by the Pink Lake in Western Australia. They're all locations one wouldn't immediately think of visiting but that's the point. The colours are meant to inspire off-the-beaten-path travels, adventure and most importantly, being present throughout the journey because you'll never know what you may encounter.
The new seasonal colours of the RIMOWA Essential collection are available in the Essential Cabin (SGD940), Essential Check-in L (SGD1,220) and the Essential Trunk Plus (SGD1,500) sizes. Consistent with the rest of the RIMOWA Essential collection, every element of the luggage is matched tone for tone, for a seamless monochromatic design too.
The question now is: Which far-flung adventure will you take your new RIMOWA Essential luggage to?
The new RIMOWA Essential colours are now available at RIMOWA Singapore boutiques in Mandarin Gallery, Marina Bay Sands, and Raffles Hotel.
