RIMOWA has long been a trusted companion for purposeful travellers. After 120 years engineering premium luggage, the German maison introduced a permanent eyewear collection that features contemporary sunglasses. Now, this product category has expanded further with the Spring/Summer 2021 collection, which showcases RIMOWA’s long lineage of product innovation, expert craftsmanship, and functional design.

The unisex RIMOWA Eyewear collection signifies RIMOWA’s natural evolution into a cult mobility brand that provides essentials engineered to meet daily needs. Offering a fresh take on functional luxury, it is characterised by premium materials, a lightweight design, and a series of details that pay homage to RIMOWA’s iconic aesthetic. The collection will introduce two new lines – RIMOWA Foldable and RIMOWA City – and additional shapes and colours introduced to RIMOWA Bridge.

 

The RIMOWA “Foldable” is a compact design that places form and function at its core. A selection of hardwearing materials feature, from the fronts made from RIMOWA’s trademark aluminium, to the laser-cut, stainless steel temples. End tips are lasered with grooves, while both the temple and over-injected nose pads are branded with the maison’s monogram. The new “foldable” frames will be available in three colour options that recall existing suitcase collections: Matte Black front and Solid Smoke polar lenses; Matte Silver front and Solid Green lenses; and Matte Grey Mercury front and Smoke Mirror lenses.

 

The RIMOWA Bridge Navigator pays tribute to RIMOWA’s classic trunks, which nod to aviation’s golden age of travel. Composed of two overlaid nylon masks assembled with rivets, this model highlights the maison’s technical sophistication. The ultra-fine metal temples add a sophisticated touch while providing the sensation of extreme lightness. Available in black with smoked polarized lenses, this model features RIMOWA trademark details laser-engraved on the temples, end tips, and nose pads.

 

The RIMOWA Bridge Cat-Eye is a more feminine shape in the Bridge range. Stainless steel temples and a nylon rim assembled using RIMOWA’s signature rivets ensure an extremely lightweight design. This classic model comes in Mercury Grey and features mirrored lenses.

 

The RIMOWA Bridge Pilot in Mars and Mercury echoes RIMOWA’s aluminium luggage with a frame that unites a transparent nylon front with stainless steel temples assembled with rivets. Crafted to be extremely lightweight, this update incorporates the brand’s latest colours –Mars Orange and Mercury Grey – for a contemporary look.  

 

The RIMOWA Bridge Pantos in Mars features a rounded unisex model that is lent a modern touch with orange-coloured lenses and a transparent nylon front. The bridge is adorned with rivets in tribute to the luggage manufacturer’s emblematic construction.

 

The RIMOWA City Pilot Rio and Tokyo feature colourful, reflective lenses that draw inspiration from the famed Copacabana beach walk in Brazil and the Shibuya crossing in Japan. Mounted on a minimalist pierced Pilot frame, the lenses use an innovative, multi-layer mirror to create a vibrant inscription.
