There’s no debating that Rimowa manufactures the world’s finest aluminum suitcases, and jetsetters will be pleased to hear that one of the brand’s coveted classics is hitting the scene once again. The Cologne-bred luxury label has just wheeled out a reimagined rendition of its Original Pilot Case.
Beloved by professional aviators and the fashionable traveler alike, this suitcase boasts the brand’s signature grooved aluminum design that ensures security as much as it exudes style. For boosted mobility, Rimowa’s Multiwheel System offers an effortless stroll through the airport, thanks in part to its ball-bearing-mounted wheels. It also features an ergonomic telescopic handle to provide a comfortable, hand-in-glove feel and smooth maneuvering.
As far as functionality goes, the Pilot Case’s interior features a removable padded compartment large enough to store a 16” laptop. Additionally, it houses a vertical pocket, a pair of essential pockets, and a pair of zipper pockets for smaller items, be it chargers, earphones, or sunglasses. Like all pieces of gear from Rimowa, it comes equipped with a leather luggage tag and a fun-loving sticker set.
If you’re trying to make a fashion statement the next time you’re at the airport, then this is the piece de resistance. Rimowa’s Original Pilot Case is back right in time for summer getaways, now available on the brand’s site for $1,485.
