RIMOWA Collaborates with Tiffany & Co. to Unveil One-of-a-Kind Travel Companions to Carry One’s Most Precious Items
Cologne, September 19th, 2023: Since 1898, RIMOWA has positioned itself as a pioneer of refined travel, combining expert craftsmanship, functional design, and an innovative spirit to create thoughtful travel tools for discerning travelers. Throughout this history, the German Maison has forged new frontiers with its creations, joining forces with visionary partners along the way to redefine the boundaries of travel. Today, RIMOWA continues this tradition with a new collaboration with global luxury jeweler Tiffany & Co.
Representing the union of two powerhouses in their respective industries, the new collaboration redefines the boundaries of travel for your most treasured items on your upcoming journeys.The collection features a new RIMOWA x Tiffany & Co. Jewelry Case, a RIMOWA x Tiffany & Co. Rock Cut Cabin suitcase, and a RIMOWA x Tiffany & Co. Jewelry Personal.
The RIMOWA x Tiffany & Co. Jewelry Case features a ‘Rock Cut’ artwork that mirrors a diamond’s unique facets—a nod to Tiffany & Co.’s legendary designs—offering an intriguing and tactile experience when interacting with RIMOWA’s signature grooved aluminium surface. Made in Germany using an aluminium-brushed technique, the distinctive ‘Rock Cut’ design features a subtle nod to the renowned jewelry house, with its emblematic ‘T’ motif artfully inscribed within the pattern.
The new Jewelry Case features the iconic Tiffany Blue® hue throughout its exterior, on its handle and its sealing. Made to safeguard treasured jewelry at home or during travel, the case spans three levels. Opening from the top for easy access, travelers will first find a large mirror with a silver plaque underneath which can be engraved. The case opens to a topmost sealed tray with five compartments to store rings and other jewelry. Featuring specially designed leather loops, the middle tray is designed to hold necklaces and bracelets while the below tray features three large spaces designed to store cherished pieces.
The RIMOWA x Tiffany & Co. Rock Cut Cabin suitcase features the intricately patterned ‘Rock Cut’ artwork as well. To complete the design, the Classic suitcase takes on a new look with its handles, luggage tag, and wheels in Tiffany Blue®. The suitcase’s interior is also embellished with the iconic hue, featuring Tiffany Blue® straps and leather details that feature the two brands’ logos.
RIMOWA’s signature polycarbonate takes on the color of Tiffany Blue® entirely in the creation of the new RIMOWA x Tiffany & Co. Jewelry Personal. Adopting a new function, the case’s interior—which is harmoniously saturated in the distinctive hue—features six jewelry compartments to store your most precious belongings during travel. Its exterior features RIMOWA and Tiffany & Co.’s logos at its center, inscribed between two Tiffany Blue® leather straps.
“We are proud to join forces with Tiffany & Co., another legendary brand with the finest craftsmanship. The creation of such purposeful and one-of-kind pieces represents the centuries of expertise behind both brands and the mastery of engineering that we bring to the table,” says Hugues Bonnet-Masimbert, Chief Executive Officer at RIMOWA.
