German luggage manufacturer Rimowa has introduced a new range of bags crafted from sustainable nylon made from discarded materials from landfills and oceans.
To celebrate the launch, Rimowa pays homage to its birthplace, Cologne, Germany, by using its skyline as the backdrop for the campaign; while the monogram of each bag reflects the spires of the Kolner Dom, a historic cathedral in the city.
The Signature collection includes a large flap backpack, a duffle bag, and a sliding tote. Each bag is made in Italy and has “smart functionalities” to ensure travellers have adjustable capacity options.
In addition, the eco-friendly nylon material used in the bags is light, supple, and water-repellent; however, trimmings and accents are made from leather.
The Rimowa Signature Flap Backpack Large (US$1446) is a practical and stylish backpack with a sliding opening system, bespoke monogram buckles, and shiny palladium hardware.
It has a top zipped pocket on the flap’s exterior, a hidden side zipped pocket, a dedicated laptop pouch, two phone pouches, and a zipped pocket inside. There is also a travel strap to secure the bag on the suitcase. Available in four different colours.
The Rimowa Signature Duffle Bag ($1490) has a two-direction zipped opening and two side buckles for adjustable capacity. It has a monogram design on the front and Cologne’s coordinates on the back travel strap. The bag has a removable webbing strap, and inside, there are pouches for laptops and phones and a zipped pocket. Available in Black, Grey and Khaki.
The Rimowa Signature Sliding Tote ($1150) is a versatile bag for travellers on-the-go.” It features a sliding cord opening system allowing adaptable storage and a top-zipped pocket for easy access to essentials. The interior includes a flat pouch for a laptop, two phone pouches, and an additional zipped pocket.
Rimowa’s new Signature collection is available in-store and online.
