RIMOWA’s Essential collection has long been a trusted companion for purposeful travellers. Renowned as the world’s first polycarbonate suitcase, this high-tech piece promises the very best of German engineering and design. Now, RIMOWA is pleased to announce the launch of the new Essential Neon, a transparent suitcase available in two vibrant colours.
Crafted from premium polycarbonate, this innovative material creates a gleaming shell in which the Essential Neon’s grooves and corners play with light diffraction. Its colourful, translucent exterior in Pink or Lime contrasts against the structure of its black interior – an effect that is heightened further by the matte black handles, zipper, logo badge and wheels. A complimentary trio of stickers included with the suitcase – whose black accents and reflective shine were designed to mirror the case’s appearance – feature the phrases “Speed of Light” and “Dazzling,” in addition to a shooting star.
Built for several days of travel, the Essential Neon Cabin features a number of sophisticated functionalities. From the stage-free telescopic handle, to interior zipped compartments made from mesh that reinforce the suitcase’s transparency, each detail has been carefully considered. While its hard shell provides optimal durability, the suitcase’s size means it can fit easily into the trunk of a car or the luggage compartments of most trains and aeroplanes. Intended to be used as a solo piece of luggage, or paired together for a contrasting look, this collection promises to become a favourite amongst the modern traveller
To accompany the launch of the Essential Neon, RIMOWA will release matching iPhone cases in Pink and Lime. They are designed for the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max.
Starting mid-July, 2021, the RIMOWA Essential Neon Cabin in Pink and Lime will be available exclusively online at RIMOWA.com.
