Premium luggage meets premium art, and you get RIMOWA x Alex Israel. RIMOWA has been a pioneer in luggage manufacturing and innovation since 1898, revolutionising the game with their aluminium and polycarbonate innovations. The brand, that recently also turned out standout collaborations with Virgil Abloh and Supreme, worked with LA-native artist Alex Israel to produce stunningly bright, eye-catching yet hardy luggages for all your travel needs.
Alex Israel, born 1982, is certainly an artist with accolades under his belt, with his art featured in solo exhibitions in the likes of the MoMA and Fondation Louis Vuitton. For this collection, he was inspired by one of his favourite sights: none other than the sky over Los Angeles. The luggages come in two colour palettes, featuring gorgeous gradient designs and matching pastel wheels. Of course, all the details—a custom lining, luggage tags including a multi-coloured image of Israel, even an exclusive set of stickers— have all been thought of.
Also, peep this: RIMOWA and Israel are launching this in a BIG way. By BIG, we mean 20-feet, because the creative duo have enacted a 20-foot luggage for all LA visitors to gawk at. We are so bummed we can’t be there, just take a look at this!
Talk about unique! We love how RIMOWA and Alex Israel have delved into Israel’s personal experience as a resident Angelenos to express LA’s cultural impact and identity. If you’re looking for a sturdy luggage that’s also stylish, these gradient babies are the ticket.
