Celebrities Love This Luxurious, 121-Year-Old Luggage Brand
Since its inception in 1898, RIMOWA has been crafting high-quality and reliable suitcases for the everyday traveler (including A-list celebs).
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.
