Consider this a second instalment with regards to my ongoing quest for a new piece of luggage. Last week, I briefly mused about the new Globe-Trotter ‘Red, White And Blue’ series, which while visually stunning, costs quite a fair bit too. This week, I’m back with my first love, namely Rimowa, and something I’ve been leering at for quite a while now, the Rimowa Topas Black 63.
A special collection that’s only available in selected markets around the world, this collection features multi-wheeled luggage in anodised jet-black matte, which is as cool and as Bond as it gets. Featuring TSA-approved combination locks, the 68 cm by 45 cm by 26 cm is also the right size as far as long-haul travel is concerned, big enough to be actually useful, yet not too big till it becomes cumbersome.
And because it’s multi-wheeled, moving it around from point to point would be a breeze too, as compared to my current suite of Classic Flight pieces which are harder to maneuver, especially when they are full. Available in a wide range of sizes, they range from SGD1950 to SGD2260 in Singapore.
The one I’m eyeing here comes in SGD2090, which really isn’t so bad considering I’m been using Rimowa for a good 3 years now without a hitch. Check them out for yourself at Rimowa boutiques island wide, including Mandarin Gallery, Marina Bay Sands and Millenia Walk.
