For more than 120 years, RIMOWA has been crafting high-quality luggage for travelers across the globe. In 1898, the first RIMOWA suitcases were crafted in hardwearing wood, with an emphasis on lightweight construction and superior stability. Fast-forward almost 40 years to 1937 when the company introduces the first ever aluminum trunk. Fast-forward again more than 60 years, to the creation of handmade-meets-high-tech polycarbonate luggage. The strong exterior is light yet durable and resists extreme weather.

Since 2000, the company has enhanced the classic case models with a patented multi-wheel system, as well as globally-recognized TSA security locks. The brand's iconic groove design is even thoughtfully inspired by the golden age of aviation, paying homage to the world's first all-metal aircraft.

What makes these investment-worthy suitcases so special is the fine craftsmanship and care that goes into each piece. That might be why A-list celebrities from LeBron James to Kylie Jenner are rolling these around the airport.

Although its flagship is located in Cologne, Germany, there are a handful of RIMOWA stores in the U.S., too. (Technically 17.) And if you can't make it to their brick and mortars, luxury department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale's carry the line. Here are our favorites for each price point.

The Essential Lite is RIMOWA's lightest suitcase, designed to offer optimum stability while weighing 30-percent less than the RIMOWA Essential.

BUY IT: Saks Fifth Avenue, $575 or RIMOWA, $575

The RIMOWA Trunk suitcase is designed with a distinctive shape and engineered to offer travelers optimum capacity and long-lasting performance.

BUY IT: Saks Fifth Avenue, $980 or RIMOWA, $980

The RIMOWA Original is remarkably robust and surprisingly lightweight. This classic piece is made from high-end anodized aluminum and engineered with longevity in mind.

BUY IT: Saks Fifth Avenue, $1,150 or RIMOWA, $1,150
