Limited to just 911 numbered pieces worldwide, the special-edition Rimowa x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita pays homage to the two brands’ most iconic design elements.
This collab is executed in Rimowa's signature grooved aluminium case with a matching high-polished aluminium handle, in a design derived from the first generation Porsche 911 – the '901'.
It also boasts black leather straps attached by polished crest-shaped holders that echo traditional hood straps and a Porsche crest on the front of the case.
The Porsche elements continue on the inside, with use of distinctive Pepita 'houndstooth' fabric, black leather accents, an imprinted Porsche crest and a yellow instructional label similar to that found in a Porsche trunk, while an X-strap that resembles a seatbelt helps keep belongings secure in transit.
The last time we saw an all-aluminum Porsche-badged Rimowa was during the 50th Anniversary of the 911, with a snazzy two-wheeled cabin case created to mark the occasion in 2013.
Best of all, it can be easily stowed in the frunk of a 911 for short weekend jaunts (especially with the border with Malaysia opening up), thanks to its wheel-less design.
“We are thrilled to see this momentous collaboration bring two legendary German brands together,” says Emelie De Vitis, Chief Marketing Officer at RIMOWA. “Our partnership celebrates the unparalleled quality of German design as we both poured our wealth of expertise into a one-of-a-kind piece.”
“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,” Robert Ader, Chief Marketing Officer of Porsche AG, added. “The result will hopefully get fans of both brands very excited.”
A trio of 'Rimowa x Porsche' retro stickers is sold separately can be purchased to further complement the case.
Starting April 21st, the Rimowa x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita and the sticker set will be available at select Rimowa stores, as well as available across Porsche’s global network of dealerships and on shop.porsche.com.
