the meeting of two historic german designers

 

Two historic German companies RIMOWA and Porsche have unveiled an iconic collaboration, debuting the RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita. With the luggage brand standing at the forefront of design since 1898 and the auto manufacturer founded in 1948, the two companies have long been known for their relentless pursuit of perfection. 

 

While functional design, technical innovation, and high performance have always been at the heart of their business,  the teams have each always stayed true to their rich cultural heritage. Starting April 21st, the RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita will be available for a recommended €2,250 EUR ($2,468 USD).

Paying homage to the most iconic design elements of both RIMOWA (see more) and Porsche (see more), the special-edition RIMOWA x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita celebrates each company’s German heritage. In fact, each case is crafted in Cologne, Germany, expressing the luggage brand’s signature grooved aluminum while drawing design cues from the first generation of the Porsche 911.

 

The design team notes that the ultra-durable case can easily be stowed in the trunk of a Porsche car thanks to its functional, wheel-free design, which also includes TSA-approved locks and a gleaming aluminum handle.

The pepita hand-carry case

 

The first-generation Porsche 911 — which originated in 1963 as the ‘Porsche 901’ and has since become one of the most successful models in road car sales, but also on the track, as well as rallies — is the ultimate muse, serving as RIMOWA’s inspiration for the aluminum Hand-Carry Case’s visual language.

 

Accented with high-gloss details that nod to the silver mirror finishing of a first-generation Porsche 911, it features black leather straps attached by polished crest-shaped holders that echo traditional hood straps and an authentic Porsche crest sitting proudly on the case’s front.

 

Inside, the case boasts a zipped U-pocket and an X-strap resembling a seatbelt to keep belongings secure in transit. Houndstooth Pepita fabric, black leather accents, an imprinted Porsche crest, and a yellow instructional label similar to that found in a Porsche trunk complete the 911-inspired aesthetic.

Emelie De Vitis, Chief Marketing Officer at RIMOWA comments: ‘We are thrilled to see this momentous collaboration bring two legendary German brands together. Our partnership celebrates the unparalleled quality of German design as we both poured our wealth of expertise into a one-of-a-kind piece.’

 

Robert Ader, Chief Marketing Officer of Porsche AG, adds: ‘The partnership with RIMOWA felt natural for both teams right from the start– for me, this is always an indicator that our brand values align in a great way. The result will hopefully get fans of both brands very excited.’
