New book unpacks the archives of Rimowa luggage

Cologne-based luggage company Rimowa has been making coveted suitcases and travel accessories since 1898.

Now the company known for signature aluminum cases has teamed up with Rizzoli publishing to create a book documenting 100 years of Rimowa’s products.

RIMOWA: An Archive, Since 1898 is filled with photographs, illustrations, and other vintage brand ephemera culled from the company’s archive.

And if you didn’t lust for this now iconic luggage before, you will after seeing some of these archival treasures.

The oversize 270-page hardcover book of Rimowa creations retails for $95.

That’s more than you’d pay for a set of Rimowa luggage stickers. It’s about what you’d pay for a Rimowa iPhone case. And far less than you’d pay for a piece of Rimowa luggage.
