Since 1898, RIMOWA has been a leader in travel, with an evolving selection of thoughtful tools that facilitate journeys near and far. Now, following the success of its Personal Cross-body Bag in polycarbonate, RIMOWA has expanded the collection to include a set of practical accessories for those on the move. Two new unisex pieces – the Personal Sling Clutch, and the Personal Hand Clutch – offer sleek solutions to daily needs. In addition, the Personal Cross-body Bag is now available in two fashion-forward aluminium models.
The newest arrivals to the Personal collection honour RIMOWA’s long lineage of product innovation, craftsmanship, and industrial know-how. Each piece was designed with functionality at the forefront, from the highly durable and lightweight aluminium used, to the bags’ secured closing system. As RIMOWA continues to rethink the look and feel of travel, this newest set of mobility essentials are destined to become staple pieces used in everyday life.
The beloved RIMOWA Personal Cross-body Clutch Bag now includes two new models made from RIMOWA’s signature grooved aluminium. First unveiled on the runway of Dior’s Summer 2020 collection as part of a limited-edition capsule collection with Kim Jones, this striking statement piece will now permanently join the Personal collection. Featuring the same careful attention to detail as its counterpart in polycarbonate, the bag boasts a gleaming aluminium shell and a removable leather strap. Inside, two open compartments, a zipped pocket, and three card slots keep daily essentials safe. It is available in two colour combinations: A Silver aluminum shell with contrasting Camel leather straps and interior, and a Black aluminium shell with Black leather straps and matching interior.
The RIMOWA Personal Sling Clutch is a versatile bag that can be worn multiple ways across the body. Made in Cologne, its streamlined design features a grooved aluminium shell with matte metallic pieces and a sporty-looking webbed strap emblazoned in jacquard with the coordinates of the brand’s historic home. Inside, the cow-hide leather interior keeps things organised with two credit card slots and an open compartment large enough to fit a mobile phone, a passport, and house keys. To ensure belongings are safe, there is a secured closing system with a mechanical button that snaps shut. The Personal Sling Clutch is available in two options: Silver aluminium with Grey strap and interior, or Black aluminium with a matching leather strap and interior.
The RIMOWA Personal Hand Clutch features many of the same design cues as the Sling Clutch. Made in Cologne, its minimalist grooved aluminium shell features matte metallic pieces that mirror the design of RIMOWA’s iconic suitcases. A removable leather wrist strap allows it to be easily slipped on and carried close, while the secured closing system keeps belongings safe. Inside, the cow-hide leather interior keeps daily essentials organised with one credit card slot and an open compartment. The Personal Hand Clutch is available in three contemporary colours: Silver with a Grey strap; Black with a Black strap, and Blush with a Grey strap.
RIMOWA has always sought to offer customization options for clients to add their own creative touch. In this spirit, the RIMOWA Personal Sling Clutch is offering the webbed strap in two additional colours – Cactus Green and Orange – for those wanting a bolder look. Similarly, the RIMOWA Personal Hand Clutch’s leather strap is available in a shade of Coral that vividly contrasts against the aluminum shell.
The RIMOWA Personal Cross-body Clutch Bag in aluminium is now available worldwide in-store and online at RIMOWA.com. The RIMOWA Personal Sling Clutch and the RIMOWA Personal Hand Clutch will follow on October 21.
