Luxury fashion house Fendi has partnered with luggage manufacturer Rimowa to recreate one of the latter’s signature travel bags—the Classic Cabin suitcase.

“United in their Italian and German excellence and expertise,” the special collaboration

features the four-wheeled, cabin-sized aluminum suitcase in its original colorways—silver and black—but with the iconic FF motif and black Cuoio Romano leather details. The internal compartment is also lined in a fabric with Fendi’s signature logo.

Other than a leather address tag, this edition of the luggage offers everything the well-loved bag has always been known for.

“This light, durable style has two handles, a telescopic handle, double-fastening and combination lock,” the label adds in a description of the luggage on the website. “[Inside, it] has a partition with a zipped pocket and adjustable straps.”

At the moment, the Italy-made luggage is sold exclusively at Fendi’s website, but it will be available for purchase in selected Fendi boutiques starting September.

More collabs?

Rimowa has been collaborating with numerous brands over the years, from the much talked about Supreme luggage to another streetwear-inspired bags with Anti Social Social Club.

Its latest work with Fendi is also not the first time the two came together for a collaboration.

In 2017, both brands reworked the iconic aluminum carry-on in honor of its 80th anniversary. It featured the FF motif in brushed aluminum that changes perspective in different lighting and a web belt that runs across the case.

The tie-up continued the following year with the release of luxe aluminum cabin trolleys in red and blue. Its exterior also had the FF logo, while its leather handles on the top and the side came in black, red, or blue. Like the previous collaboration, the bag featured a web belt that runs across the case.

The luggage manufacturer has also worked with fellow brands under the French luxury group LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton in the past.

Rimowa’s former CEO, Alexandre Arnault, boosted the brand’s collaborative output when he stepped in as the company’s leader in 2017.

In the same year, partnerships with Dior, Moncler, and Off-White materialized. 

Future collaborations within the LVMH family, then, is highly likely. Which brands it will be with remains to be seen.
