For the first time, Rimowa is looking beyond luggage to offer yet another travel staple: Really cool sunglasses.
The German brand has unveiled Rimowa Eyewear, its first sunglasses collection comprising two unisex lines named Rimowa Bridge and Rimowa Rim. Just like its signature suitcases, the new sunglass styles are stylish and sleek. Think aviators, square and pantos shades, fashioned for the modern traveller.
The Rimowa Eyewear Rim Pilot (S$450), for example, is a fresh take on the classic aviators. Drawing from early aviation and pilot essentials, it features bold lenses and clean lines courtesy of a skinny metal frame.
That means it’s conveniently lightweight, like the rest of the collection. The same contemporary look applies to the Rimowa Bridge line (prices range from S$480 to S$550), which is marked by a slightly thicker — but no more heavier — frame.
All Rimowa Eyewear designs come in both traditional or coloured reflective lenses, including standout shades like red, yellow and navy.
The best part is that these colours match the ones offered for Rimowa’s suitcases, so you can show up to the airport looking very well put together. Each pair also comes with a protective pouch to make your journeys that bit easier.
The collection couldn’t have come at a better time, now that several countries around the world are opening up their borders to tourists again.
Rimowa Eyewear is now available at selected Rimowa stores worldwide and online.
