This week, iconic luggage brand RIMOWA and streetwear sensation Supreme joined forces for what resulted in one of the most coveted collaborations of the year: a loud, branded, bold, eye-catching hardshell aluminum suitcase that sold out in seconds last Thursday.
Introducing the Supreme x RIMOWA premium luggage in black and red color ways.
Supreme has stamped its name on a lot of things: lighters, hammers, and slabs of brick, to name a few. But this collaboration is just as much about RIMOWA as it is about the streetwear brand name slung across it.
A premium luggage brand for over 100 years, RIMOWA is an iconic German brand (and status symbol) that has had a respectable following of well-heeled, well-traveled buyers. And it’s obvious why the international jet set continue to reach for the German-made hardshells: each piece of luggage is an expression of quality engineering, sophistication and prestige.
The current Supreme x RIMOWA collab has all the traditional features that the German brand is famous for: smooth rolling wheels, sleek aluminum bodies, trademark parallel grooves, and built-in combination locks.
There’s just one detail that’s been added: a giant Supreme logo flung across the side panel.
So what happens when German design meets streetwear style? An epic mashup that’s tailor-made for the jetsetting hypebeast is born, that’s what. Not only will you make quite a bit of friends at the airport, this one-of-a-kind item will only go up in value. Yes, you’re looking at a collector’s item with this collab, and a practical one at that. (That is, if you manage to use your luggage while protecting it from airport baggage handlers with overzealous throws.)
But you don’t need to camp outside the Supreme store to get your hands on one of these bad boys—this is where we come in. The Supreme x RIMOWA suitcases are already stacking up on eBay.
