After months of displaying the ‘Not Available in Singapore’ tag over on RIMOWA.com, good news! The gorgeous Aluminium Groove iPhone Case has finally landed on our sunny shores, coming in sizes for iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.
So, what’s the great deal about the case, you may ask? Well for one, it’s made from aluminium and shockproof TPU that’s highly resistant to scratches and scuffs, making it a great protective case you can count on for the everyday. Two, it comes with the luggage maker’s iconic groove design and made to match their signature suitcases to perfection, with the grooves providing a solid grip while on the go. Three, despite coming in aluminium, the case is actually really lightweight and features a slim profile, one that can be kept easily in your pockets or bag without bulging out unnecessarily at the wrong places.
The only gripe? Because the case is made of aluminium, it doesn’t support wireless charging but hey, that’s what the charging cable is for, right?
For now, the cases only come only in Silver and are priced at SGD140 each, available across all Rimowa boutiques (Mandarin Gallery, Marina Bay Sands and Raffles Hotel) in Singapore. As for those on the hunt for the versions in rose gold aluminium or black leather, stay tuned for more updates.
UPDATE: 23 July 2019
The bad news? All the iPhone cases (in all 3 sizes) are now sold out in Singapore. The good news? Word has it that more of these aluminium babies will be coming soon, so if you haven’t got one (or want another to give away as gifts), kindly head down to your nearest Rimowa boutique (or give them a call) and put yourself on the wait list stat, ok?
