A stunning collaboration is on the horizon as two powerhouse brands, Rimowa and Tiffany & Co., join forces to redefine luxury travel. Here is a first look at the highly anticipated Rimowa x Tiffany & Co. collection, set to be released on September 26th in select Rimowa stores, rimowa.com, Tiffany Landmark store in New York City, and on tiffany.com in Greater China via WeChat. The collection brings a breath of fresh air with a revamped vanity case designed to keep your precious jewelry safe while traveling.
In a world where traveling has become part of our daily lives, the collaboration between Rimowa and Tiffany & Co. is a match made in heaven. The German luggage firm, known for its iconic grooved aluminum luggage, has teamed up with the American jeweler to create a line of carry-on cabin and vanity cases that will not only safeguard your jewelry but also make a fashion statement.
The collection includes three eye-catching designs, all featuring a brushed aluminum exterior with a shiny, beveled surface that evokes the facets of a diamond. Rimowa, known for its grooved aluminum luggage, refers to this design as a “rock cut.” The handles, wheels, and interiors of the cases are adorned in Tiffany Blue, giving a nod to the brand’s signature color. The vanity case, in particular, boasts three blue trays, the topmost being sealed, with compartments to accommodate rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. Additionally, Rimowa’s popular hard-shell cross-body bag is also available in a Tiffany Blue rendition made of polycarbonate material, featuring six jewelry compartments inside.
Retail prices for the collection range from 1,800 euros for the cross-body case to 3,900 euros for the top-handle jewelry case. This collaboration marks another successful venture for Rimowa since its acquisition by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton in 2017. The premium luggage maker has previously collaborated with high-profile brands such as Dior, Off-White, Supreme, Fendi, Moncler, and Daniel Arsham, among others.
Alexandre Arnault, executive vice president of product and communication at Tiffany & Co., and former CEO of Rimowa, shared his thoughts on the collaboration. “The idea came to mind shortly after joining Tiffany,” he said. “The union of the two maisons felt natural as they both represent powerhouses in their respective industries. Each piece in the collaboration is reflective of our legacy of exceptional design and our standards of bringing the best quality and utmost commitment to our craft.”
Arnault highlighted that Tiffany & Co. has been offering unique jewelry boxes for decades, including ones designed by Elsa Peretti. “We will continue to explore product categories that complement and expand from our traditional jewelry designs,” he added. His interest in Rimowa started before LVMH’s acquisition of the brand, and he recognized its potential early on. “During my time there, we used a focused approach to reposition the house, and it has been exciting to see its continued success,” he remarked.
In celebration of its 125th anniversary, Rimowa is also hosting a traveling exhibition that has already made stops in Tokyo and New York City.
