Move Aside Suitcase, We Want Rihanna's RIMOWA Cross-Body Bag(This content has been paid for by an advertiser. If you'd like to appear on Highsnobiety, contact: email@example.com.Sponsored Story) in StyleWords By
RIMOWA is the undisputed leader of luxury luggage and last fall’s star-studded campaign featuring its new Personal Cross-Body Bag proved it. The four-part film series also featured legends (and very seasoned travelers) Rihanna, Patti Smith, LeBron James, and Roger Federer.
It’s not surprising that RIMOWA’s cases are so popular. Unbeatable in their durability and style, the German brand’s iconic aluminium cases are essential travel companions and have been the subject of collaboration for brands including Supreme and Off-White.
With the travel industry coming to a forced standstill over the past two years, you’d expect the brand that helped shape the modern-day traveler to scale back. Instead, RIMOWA took the opportunity to explore beyond suitcases and released the Personal Cross-Body Bag, a suitcase for champagne, a set of slick shades, and even a travel guide.1 / 7
RIMOWA’s Personal Cross-Body Bag takes all of its expertise and packs it into a smaller form. It features a hard-shell case made of lightweight polycarbonate or gleaming aluminium — RIMOWA’s two trademark materials — with grooves running across the exterior that mimic those of the brand’s signature suitcases. Designed for maximum versatility, both material options come with an adjustable leather strap that can be removed to transform it into a clutch.
Like their luggage counterparts, both aluminium and polycarbonate Personal bags are built to protect your belongings. Inside, the (almost) indestructible cases there are two open compartments, a zipped pocket, and three card slots that ensure your gear stays in place — gone are the days of squished hand creams and key-scratched phone screens.
The RIMOWA Personal Polycarbonate Cross-Body Bag comes in five glossy hues: black, white, desert rose, bamboo, and azure, while the aluminium option is offered in silver with contrasting camel leather straps and interior, and black with matching leather straps and interior.
