Summer travel is about to get colourful with the new capsule collection from Rimowa. Ahead of its launch next week, Rimowa offers BAZAAR an exclusive peek into the collection, presenting its Essential suitcase range, Never Still Tote bags, Personal Cross-body bag as well as iPhone cases in new shades of Lavande and Citron.
No stranger to cool, fashion-savvy suitcases, this time around sees Rimowa taking inspiration from the sights and scents of the French Provence, interpreted into pretty pastel shades that capture the joy of travelling in the summer. As its name implies, Lavande is a soft purple shade that evokes the soothing scent of a field of lavender. Citron on the other hand is an invigorating pastel yellow that conjures up the image of lounging under a summer sky with a cool glass of lemonade in hand.
Symbolic of a sunny disposition, the two colours bring about a sense of joy and whimsy to Rimowa’s existing collection. The Rimowa Essential range—hailed as the world’s first polycarbonate suitcase—expresses the very best of German engineering and design now beautifully brushed in the new colours, from its glossy shell to the badge, right down to its wheel housing. Functions-wise, this being Rimowa, a smooth travel experience is guaranteed further with features the likes of a stage-free telescopic handle and multi-wheel system. Some fun personalisation comes by way of a set of pop-style stickers to decorate your luggage with.
Then for everyday excursions, consider either the roomy Never Still Tote Large in Citron that comes with a removable zipped pocket, or the Never Still Tote Medium in Lavande with an adjustable strap and zipped interior to store your daily essentials in fashionable style. Both totes are Italian-made, crafted from full-grain leather and canvas.
Specially for Asia, as the perfect accessory to liven up your summer look the much-celebrated Rimowa Cross-Body Bag now comes in Lavande. Incredibly durable yet lightweight, this compact bag houses a well-organised interior with three card slots, two open compartments, and one zipped compartment, further complemented by a leather strap in a darker shade of purple. Additionally, this capsule collection offers iPhone cases also in Lavande (for the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max).
