Rimowa is a luxury travel brand that’s been in the game for over a century. Off-White is an Italian streetwear label that kicked off in 2013. With so much old and new ground covered between them, it’s no wonder the two brands have teamed up to create luggage that hinders close to work of art. Put simply, the Rimowa x Off-White Carry-On–which hosts a stunning transparent design–doesn’t just fit in the overhead compartment as much as it does reimagine what luggage can be in the first place. To say the collaboration is off to a promising start would be an understatement.
Touting a polycarbonate case and accented black handles, the Rimowa x Off-White Carry-On speaks a visual language all its own. Boldly experimental in design, yet thoroughly accessible in functionality, the transparent luggage was inspired by modern culture’s omnipresent fixation on privacy, surveillance and anonymity. Of course, one doesn’t need to grasp at metaphors to reap use from this stellar product, which hosts a roomy interior, TSA combination locks, and silent multiwheel system among other things.
Set to debut at the men’s fashion show in Paris on June 20th, the Rimowa x Off-White Carry-On delivers copious amounts of playful personality and no shortage of visual allure. Should you travel with this baby at your disposal, expect people to ask where you got it. Lots and lots of people.
