Because the only way to go is forward, Rimowa has pressed on with exciting additions to its extensive luggage range, specifically the ones that come in matte black anodised aluminium, newly introduced for the much-loved Classic collection. The monochrome finish makes for a fitting alternative to the silver versions (which you’re all too familiar with), and it helps that this will be a permanent addition so you can count on it on being a timeless design that isn’t limited to a particular season.
In full black-on-black, you can expect to find tone-on-tone finishes on the handmade leather handles, riveted corners, telescopic extender and of course, the wheels. The improved telescopic handle (or extender, if you prefer) can be custom adjusted to any height, so that’s a plus point for all heights. It also features a leather insert on the underside to give you an ergonomic grip, with the soft material ensuring comfort (and an added touch of luxe) at all times.
Even if you’re not planning on travelling overseas anytime soon, the new finish makes for a lovely addition to your current Rimowa collection, and no one’s stopping you from taking it along with you for a year-end staycation as well. In Singapore, the Classic Matte Black Luggage collection will be made available from 15 October 2020 in 3 sizes, Cabin (SGD1500), Check-In L (SGD1950) and Trunk (SGD2340), making it just a tad higher than the standard silver trunk pieces. If you want to jazz it up even further, you can opt to change the colour of your handles, wheels and luggage tag at an additional fee, though purists will stick to the full matte black version, which is as classic as it gets.
