While last year’s much-hyped Supreme x Louis Vuitton collaboration saw the New York street fashion pioneer make its way into the luxury space, the collection’s travel goods didn’t exactly live up to the ‘skate or die’ lifestyle upon which the brand built its foundations. Now, however, the skateboard brand’s latest tie-up with RIMOWA looks to change that.
Marrying the German luggage brand’s rough-and-tough reputation with skaters’ compulsion to ride anything with wheels, Supreme unveiled the first looks of its bold, unmistakable brand DNA adorning RIMOWA’s iconic aluminium case in the form of a short video posted to Instagram yesterday. Capturing a daredevil riding the case from the back of a motorcycle on what looks to be anything but an even road, the luggage brand’s claims of unrivaled durability are put to the test, and seemingly hold up.
With leak sites predicting three sizes of the collaborative case and a drop date of April 12, details on pricing, stockists and availability still remain to be seen. While supply is sure to be limited and it’ll likely cost more than anything you actually end up putting inside it, one thing is certain: you won’t have to worry about too many mix-ups at baggage claim.
