Here’s a little heads up for those of you in the midst of doing your wardrobe decluttering while working from home. Do remember to leave space for Rimowa’s upcoming new size, the Original Trunk XL, one that will take the crown as the largest suitcase you’ll ever find in the German luggage manufacturer’s line-up when it launches on 19 March 2020. This oversized edition is constructed from the brand’s signature high-end anodised aluminium, coming in the same height as the Original Trunk Plus but with a significantly deeper body that offers 25% (25 litres) more space with just 6% (less than 1 kg) additional weight.
The Original Trunk XL is built for open-ended voyages of 4 weeks or more (in contrast, the Original Trunk Plus has an optimal capacity of up to 2 weeks), and you can picture it as a perfectly symmetrical suitcase constructed from two identical aluminium shells reinforced with Rimowa rivets right in the middle. Other key elements include TSA-approved locks, an adjustable flex divider, the top-notch Multiwheel System, and of course, the seamless telescopic handle that offers ultimate manoeuvrability.
If you’re one of the believers in buying a new luggage just before your vacation, do note that this post isn’t your excuse to encourage you to buy it right now and book the next flight out, because there’s a time and place for everything and now isn’t that time. Or, get one and use it as a home accent piece, one that would just fit right in within homes that are minimalist or those with industrial vibes.
Priced at SGD2730, the Original Trunk XL will only be offered in silver aluminium finish for now, and you can head down to any Rimowa boutique in Singapore to have a look.
