Rimowa Eyewear Collection engineered with travel in mind.

Listen to this article

Traditions of craftsmanship and innovation come together for an eyewear collection engineered with travel in mind.

As a new generation of travellers emerges and our ways of moving in the world shift and evolve, so too must our travel tools. The brand’s first-ever RIMOWA Eyewear collection offers a distinctive new way to enhance the experience of modern, purposeful travellers.

Remember when Rimowa partnered with Garrett Leight California Optical (GLCO) earlier this year? Together, the duo unveiled the Essential Cabin Suitcase in white gloss, one that was sold along with a pair of sunglasses, a beach towel, sticker sets, as well as an exclusive luggage tag crafted especially for the collaboration. While those were limited-edition and no longer available for sale, you can now look forward to the upcoming Eyewear Collection by Rimowa, a chic selection of sunglasses that are part of the German luggage manufacturer’s permanent line-up.

Much like RIMOWA‘s emblematic grooved aluminium luggage was inspired by the fuselage of early aircraft, this new eyewear collection takes its design cues from aviation accessories and pilot essentials. Featuring ultra-lightweight frames in modernised classic styles like the Pilot, Square and Pantos, the RIMOWA Eyewear collection is offered in a variety of vibrant colours each crafted to match a select favourite luggage piece for a coordinated look.

The collection debuts with two sunglasses ranges, Bridge and Rim, that draw from the brand’s DNA translating its values into this first-ever eyewear line. Punctuated by signature iconic details like the groove, Monogram and rivets, the collection builds on the brand’s history of innovation while preserving a longstanding tradition of quality, engineering and craftsmanship.

Sleek and sublime are just some of the words you can use to describe the collection, and you will also be pleased to know that the sunglasses are surprisingly lightweight and comfortable while safeguarding your eyes from potential UV damage. Prices start from SGD450 for the Rimowa Rim (crafted from acetate) line and SGD480 for the Rimowa Bridge (identified by industrial-grade rivets and assembled by pins) line, which will be arriving in boutiques from 9 July 2020.

Each pair will be sold together with its very own Rimowa-branded protective case/pouch so that you can take it easily with you on your travels near and far. Because once you are allowed to travel, everyone will definitely be travelling near and far.
