Those in love with the whole idea of travel back in the 50s and the 60s where air stewardesses served you Dom Pérignon and caviar whilst wearing white gloves would appreciate the Rimowa Vintage 1950 collection, a limited edition release of 5 luggage pieces that were modelled after a Rimowa original from the 1950s. Advertised with the slogan 1A Quality & Feather-light Air Luggage back in the day, all 1950 pieces (yes it’s that limited and spread across 5 sizes) will have their own unique serial number that can be found on the locks. No, not TSA ones, but retro-style locks that will require your special 3-number combination.
Lined with plush moiré in deep blue with a large gusseted pocket positioned under the lid, another special feature of this series can be found on the luggages’ handles, carved from a single block of aluminium that attests to the collection’s workmanship. Priced from SGD7850 and up, it’s a piece of collectible legacy that’s worth a second look, and one that would do well in your travels or even as a piece of home decor.
Check them out exclusively at Rimowa Mandarin Gallery or Marina Bay Sands, where they are now available for viewing (and sale). Now excuse me while I go watch Pan Am. You know, the TV series.
