INSPO BEHIND THE COLLAB: RIMOWA X MONCLER
When Remo Ruffini approached RIMOWA about doing a special collaboration, he had a vision in mind. Inspired by American artist Doug Aitken's mirrored mountain cabin installed in the Swiss alps in Gstaad, RIMOWA set out to innovate. The ranch-style house clad in mirrors reflects and nearly blends into its surrounding land and skyscape. This special edition luggage piece would do the same, reflecting the outside world and therefore the changing scenery of its frequent travelling owner.
Developed using a specially selected alloy which enabled expert RIMOWA engineers to achieve the most high-quality mirroring effect possible, the Moncler RIMOWA "Reflection" suitcase is a piece made to stand out while striving to seamlessly blend in.
Designed in collaboration with the luxury Italian fashion house and first unveiled at Moncler Genius 2020 at Milan Fashion Week, the Moncler RIMOWA "Reflection" collaboration combines each brand's engineering expertise and repertoire of technically advanced materials. Exclusively available in Cabin size, the ultra-polished aluminium suitcase combines a bespoke mirrored aluminium shell accented with matte black handles, matte black riveted corners, and lined with Moncler's signature padded nylon fabric. The limited edition also includes a set of exclusive silver packing cubes made of Moncler's padded fabric, a dark grey luggage tag and luggage belt designed by Moncler.
