The clock is ticking and the countdown has officially begun, as Dior’s highly-anticipated collaboration with Rimowa will finally be launching on our shores come 15 January 2020. The duo have come together to create a capsule collection that’s all about the perfect amalgamation of style and technical innovation, crafted using quality materials (Rimowa’s finest aluminium, no less), and injected with cool design elements thanks to the creative genius behind Dior Men, Kim Jones.
And while you’ve taken a look at the various sizes (and prices) over here, this post serves as a run-through of the exact dimensions and functions of the specific pieces, and you will be able to get a general understanding of how each would look on the inside.
First up, the Personal (SGD3360), one that’s meant to be a portable case which can be carried for the everyday, kept close to your body by way of the extra leather straps it comes with. Each case measures 22.6 cm by 12.8 cm and opens to a calfskin interior segmented into 3 main compartments which is great for storing your daily essentials. There’s also a zippered pocket for coins and keys and 6 card slots to keep you well organised, with an additional opening that’s great for slotting in cash and receipts.
The next size up would be the Hand Case (SGD4240, SGD4770 for the one in Gradient Blue), which is slightly wider and taller at 36 cm by 23.5 cm. Let it be the perfect accompaniment to your suitcase (you can strap it onto the luggage’s extended handles via the extra band located at the back), or go ahead and carry it like a statement-making top handle bag that it was truly built to be. Each case comes with its very own TSA-approved lock, and opens to a #DiorOblique printed interior that will house a sizeable amount of bits and bobs.
The Cabin (SGD4900, SGD5300 for the one in Gradient Blue) and Trunk (SGD5840, SGD6370 for the one in Gradient Blue) need no introduction, coming in at 55 cm by 40 cm and 73 cm by 44 cm respectively, the exact same dimensions as the pieces found in Rimowa’s Original luggage line-up. The difference? These pieces (including the Hand Case above) feature vibrant pigments that are anodised directly onto the aluminium exterior to create the signature Dior Oblique motif, and come in options like Black, Silver and a truly unique Gradient Blue finish.
Rimowa is currently open to taking in full deposits for the pieces, which gives you a higher chance of securing a piece when they officially land in stores come January 2020. All you have to do is head down to one of the boutiques at Mandarin Gallery (6735-2051), Marina Bay Sands (6688-7104) and Raffles Hotel (6258-2032), find an SA and let them know the exact style (and colour) you want. Go!
