United by their common appreciation for luxurious design and innovative solutions, RIMOWA and Chaos have partnered on a limited-edition line of suitcases and travel accessories that meld RIMOWA’s legacy of German engineering with Chaos’ daring attitude.
The glossy polycarbonate grooves of the RIMOWA Essential Cabin have been splashed by Chaos’ individual style. Featuring a bold graphic in the shape of paint dripping down the suitcase’s exterior, the inventive design is available in two complementary colour options: Saffron Yellow and White, which provides an uplifting pop of colour, and Cactus Green and Black, which offers a more discreet and urban-minded alternative. Both are expertly matched – from the handle and zipper, to the badge and wheel housing – for a coordinated appearance. Each suitcase comes with a co-branded leather luggage tag embossed with a globe that celebrates the collaboration, in addition to three complimentary stickers.
A series of Italian-made accessories complete the collection. A luggage harness, crafted from high-quality satin nylon, cleverly streamlines the experience of traveling with carry-on luggage by removing the need for an accompanying handbag or briefcase. Easily secured to suitcase with anti-slip straps, the harness boasts a clever formation of pockets and compartments that allow fast access to all your travel essentials, from a water bottle to a laptop. While understated in black, the luggage harness displays Chaos’ DNA with subtle design cues, such as the slogan straps and the loose pockets referencing the athleisure look of a bomber jacket.
Chaos’ trademark sense of fun was applied to smaller accessories intended to add a personal touch to RIMOWA suitcase. A range of collectible leather luggage tags are emblazoned with city names, each one sporting a different style that references the colours and cultures of that destination, as well as providing the coordinates of the local RIMOWA store. Three quirky leather and chenille luggage charms – a fried egg, a green apple, and a “chill pill” – add some tongue-in-cheek humour, as do the variety of eye-catching slogan stickers.
“Our collaboration with RIMOWA felt like a natural partnership because high design, function, and quality stand at the forefront of both brands. The collection allows you to personalise your travel set and make a statement, but also to travel with ease,” explain Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall, co-founders of Chaos.
“We are thrilled to partner with Chaos on a collection that’s infused with their playful personality,” adds Emelie De Vitis, Chief Marketing Officer at RIMOWA.
“RIMOWA’s rich legacy has been coupled with Chaos’ cult following to create a memorable collaboration that truly celebrates both brands,” continues Emelie De Vitis.
