LVMH-owned German luggage brand Rimowa is releasing special-edition suitcases.

A two-piece collection produced with fashion label Aimé Leon Dore will soon hit the market. Merging German craftsmanship and heritage with the opulence of the Big Apple’s apparel scene, the handcrafted carriers arrive in-store and online on May 31, 2024.

Rimowa's classics are reimagined through the lens of its contemporary by way of the collaboration.

In 1964, Rimowa introduced a Cabin Trunk, opting for a shell that could be conveniently stacked onboard train cars.

Most closely tied to this archival design, the Rimowa x Aimé Leon Dore Chest is exclusive to the drop and new to the company.

Using more of the features that Rimowa's customers are familiar with — TSA-approved locks, flex dividers and telescopic handles, to name a few — the Rimowa x Aimé Leon Dore Cabin employs the brand's trademarked multi-wheel technology, making transport a bit easier.

Of the items' shared elements, gold-plated hardware stands out. Finished with brown leather-made handles and straps and covered in a deep green shade, the color of its aluminum exterior nods to Aimé Leon Dore's signature hue.

Bespoke details like this continue on the inside. A print showcasing an assortment of ancient Greek stamps originated by Aimé Leon Dore is applied to a nylon-lined interior.

Complete with cobranded leather logo badges, the Rimowa x Aimé Leon Dore Cabin will retail for $2,670, and the Rimowa x Aimé Leon Dore Chest for $3,880.
