Calling all piece collectors and design aficionados! The perfect hand-carry case does exist. On the 21st of April, the RIMOWA x Porsche collection will be available in select RIMOWA stores and across Porsche’s global network of dealerships.
Changing the face of travel this 2022, RIMOWA announced its first collaboration with Porsche for this year. With borders opening up and the tourism industry starting to feel like it’s almost normal once again, what better company can keep you going than a new suitcase that exudes functionality, fashion, and rich cultural heritage.
Bringing together the singular expertise of two iconic German companies in an ultra-premium collaboration, RIMOWA released the RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita – a special edition carrycase that pays homage to the iconic design elements of the two brands.
RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita
Crafted in Cologne, Germany, the RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita is fashioned from RIMOWA’s signature grooved aluminum and takes design inspiration from the first generation of the Porsche 911. With its highly functional wheel-free design, it can easily be stowed in the boot of a Porsche car on weekend jaunts. It also has TSA-approved locks and a gleaming aluminum handle.
The ultimate muse of RIMOWA’s aluminum hand-carry case is the first-generation Porsche 911 – which was first showcased in 1963 as the “Porsche 901”, by far one of the most successful models in road car sales. The said car has also become a legend in motorsport, with a remarkable record on the track, as well as in rallies.
RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita is accented with high-gloss details that nod to the silver mirror finishing of a first-generation Porsche 911. It is featured with black leather straps attached by polished crest-shaped holders that echo traditional hood straps and an authentic Porsche crest sitting proudly on the case’s front.
Inside, RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita boasts a zipped U-pocket and an X-strap that resembles a seatbelt. This keeps the belongings secure while traveling. Completing the 911-inspired aesthetics of the suitcase are the houndstooth Pepita fabric, black leather accents, imprinted Porsche crest, and yellow instructional label that is similar to the one found in the trunk of a Porsche 911.
As a limited edition, this special collaboration that celebrates the unparalleled quality of German designs is available in extremely limited quantities – with only 911 numbered pieces of RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita produced. This exclusive case will be complimented with RIMOWA x Porsche Pepita Sticker Set featuring a trio of retro stickers that will be sold separately.
RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita will officially get launched this April 21 and will be available for purchase in select RIMOWA stores and Porsche’s global network of dealerships. Get ready to travel in style and check out shop.porsche.com for more details.
