For years, RIMOWA has stood at the forefront of German design and innovation, and its recent collaboration with Porsche has resulted in something very special. Effortlessly stylish and bolstered with some serious sex appeal, the much-anticipated debut of the RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita arrives just as international gets back in full swing. The iconic collaboration of two leading German companies showcases the very best of what the nation has to offer.

The limited edition RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita is elegant, lightweight and the perfect combination of function and fashion. It features RIMOWA’s signature sleek aluminium grooves and design elements from Porsche’s first generation of the 911. The exclusive case will also be complemented by a RIMOWA x Porsche Pepita Sticker Set featuring a trio of retro stickers which will be sold separately. Storing the case shouldn’t be a problem- the case will fit without a hassle in the boot of your Porsche thanks to its free-wheel design. This means you can go on weekend trips with your case in hand.
According to Emelie De Vitis, chief marketing officer at RIMOWA, it was the first-generation Porsche 911 – which originated in 1963 as the “Porsche 901” that served as inspiration for the aluminium Hand-Carry Case’s visual language. From the high-gloss details that nod to the silver mirror finishing of the iconic vehicle to the Porsche crest that emblazons the case’s front, there are subtle (and not-so-subtle) references everywhere.
“We are thrilled to see this momentous collaboration bring two legendary German brands together,” says De Vitis said. “Our partnership celebrates the unparalleled quality of German design as we both poured our wealth of expertise into a one-of-a-kind piece.”
If you want to get your hands on this unique collaboration, you will have to get in quick! The partnership is available in extremely limited quantities with only 911 numbered pieces produced, a number chosen to represent Porsche’s much-loved sports car. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on a case, it will therefore make for an ideal piece for collectors and design aficionados alike.
Hoping to be one of the lucky few to call the hand-carry case yours? Starting April 21st, the RIMOWA x Porsche collection will be available at select RIMOWA stores and across Porsche’s global network of dealerships and via Porsche’s online store.
