Rimowa Hammerschlag Collection: A Vintage Revival Of Exclusive Classics

Since its inception in 1898, Rimowa has been synonymous with luxury travel accessories, pioneering the aluminum suitcase that has become an icon of sophistication and durability. While other brands have attempted to emulate Rimowa’s success, none can rival the German luxury brand’s reputation for quality and innovation.

Enter the Rimowa Hammerschlag Collection, a homage to the brand’s illustrious history and commitment to timeless design. Drawing inspiration from an iconic archival model dating back to 1966, the Hammerschlag collection reintroduces a classic aesthetic with a contemporary twist.

The term ‘Hammerschlag,’ German for ‘hammer hit,’ pays homage to the distinctive textured aluminum surface that defines this collection. Unlike the smooth exterior of traditional Rimowa cases, the Hammerschlag pieces feature a textured, scaly surface reminiscent of handcrafted luxury.

The revival of the Hammerschlag collection is not merely a nostalgic gesture but a celebration of craftsmanship and heritage. With limited quantities available, each piece is meticulously crafted to evoke the elegance and sophistication of a bygone era.

The Hammerschlag collection comprises two standout pieces: the Hand-Carry Case and the Cabin roller. Both pieces feature a hammered aluminum shell reminiscent of the original design from the 1960s, along with vintage-inspired details such as brown leather handles and unique metal bridges.

Inside, the Hammerschlag cases boast luxurious interiors, with a mix of olive twill and brown leather dividers that exude timeless elegance. These pieces are not just luggage; they are symbols of refinement and exclusivity, designed for the discerning traveler who appreciates both style and functionality.

The Hammerschlag Hand-Carry Case is priced at $2,360, while the Cabin roller commands $2,850, making them investment pieces for the modern traveler. The Hammerschlag collection is set to launch on March 28th, with limited quantities available worldwide. Each piece will be individually numbered.
