Rimowa has just unveiled the second installment of its collaboration with Fendi.
With the first joint suitcase— a dual-branded gold and silver cabin case — releasing at the end of last year, the new collaboration sees Fendi’s “Double F” logo and either blue or red detailing according to a 2018 HypeBeast report.
Like its predecessor, the case displays the double F logo with a brushed effect, which changes depending on the light, as well as Cuoio Romano leather handles on the top and side, and a web belt that runs across the case. A new leather Airbag charm, shaped like a paper airplane, has Fendi’s signature Bag Bugs eyes according to a 2018 Women’s Wear Daily report.
This is also one of the first pieces to feature RIMOWA’s recently-unveiled new visual identity, which includes personalization options and subtle redesigns. As it stands, there is no official release date for the collaboration, but keep checking back for more information according to a 2018 HypeBeast report.
The novelty is that the cases will be among the first to feature Rimowa’s new visual identity, unveiled earlier this year to coincide with the brand’s 120th anniversary. Personalization options include stickers and a customizable leather name tag that snaps onto the external belt, according to a 2018 Women’s Wear Daily report.
Fendi, which like Rimowa belongs to French conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, was the first brand to collaborate with the German luggage maker following the arrival of luxury scion Alexandre Arnault as chief executive officer, according to a 2018 Women’s Wear Daily report.
Rimowa is a manufacturer of premium luggage. The company was founded it 1898, in Cologne, Germany. Paul Morszeck and Heinrich Görtz founded the company under the name Görtz & Morszeck. In 2016, LVMH acquired an 80% stake in the company.
Rimowa has also made limited-edition suitcases with Supreme, Off-White and graphic design duo M/M Paris.
