Aside from limited-edition pieces like the space-inspired suitcase which you read about last year, Rimowa has been consistently introducing new colours to its seasonal line-up. This year, you can look forward to Azure and Flamingo, both new hues that take inspiration from the scenic landscapes of Tanzania.
Inspired by the picturesque view of pink flamingoes amidst calming blue waters, the colours were translated into a line-up featuring some of Rimowa’s signatures, with the main highlight being the Essential suitcases. Offered in sizes like the Cabin (SGD1060) and Check-In L (SGD1350), there’s also the larger Trunk Plus (SGD1660) if you need more luggage space, especially handy if you are intending to revenge shop in Europe soon.
Other fun pieces include the Wrist Pouch (SGD650) and Flat Pouch (SGD690), both crafted from a lightweight canvas complete with signature grooved elements inspired by Rimowa’s iconic suitcases. The former comes with an extra webbing strap so you can wear it around your wrist (hence the name), while the latter is slightly bigger and meant for items like your laptop and A4 documents.
Fancy a crossbody? You can go for the Polycarbonate Cross-Body Bag (SGD1750) in Azure, a unisex case featuring the dent-resistant grooved polycarbonate made in Germany. Each piece is sold together with colour-coordinated leather elements (on the strap and interior compartment), which will pair well with most any look you have in mind.
Intrigued? These new hues are all available at Rimowa boutiques at Mandarin Gallery and Marina Bay Sands, so just pick the nearest store and head down for a look stat.
