Is Rimowa the unsuspecting king of fabulous fashion collaborations? They might as well be.
Having teamed up with the likes of Dior, Off-White and Supreme, the luxury luggage brand is certainly no stranger to fashion. But now it can officially consider itself a part of it, thanks to launch of Rimowa Eyewear.

For the first time, the German brand is looking beyond luggage to offer yet another travel staple: really cool sunglasses. Rimowa is unveiling two unisex lines for them, namely Rimowa Bridge and Rimowa Rim. Just like the brand’s signature suitcases, the new sunglasses styles are stylish and sleek. Think aviators, square and pantos shades, fashioned for the modern traveller.
The Rimowa Eyewear Rim Pilot (approx. THB 10,035), 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 approx. THB 10,705 to approx. THB 12,265), 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 stand-out 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. And if you need a little inspiration, check out our curated picks of travel destinations around the region at the new LSA Curates.
Rimowa Eyewear will be available from 9 July at selected Rimowa stores worldwide and online.
