For frequent jet-setters, there’s nothing quite as important as investing in a good quality luggage that you can take with you wherever you go. After all, nobody wants a suitcase that falls apart while you’re manoeuvring through the hectic metro stations of Tokyo or unpaved streets of Barcelona.

Of course, some suitcase brands are more reputable (and are known to be sturdier) than others. If you’re looking for a suitcase that blends durability and function with prestige, a brand to look to is Rimowa. After all, the German luxury suitcase manufacturer was the first to produce luggage made of structural aluminium in 1937, so it’s definitely the authority on long-lasting, high-end luggage.

The brand’s legendary line of suitcases is endorsed by celebrities and artists all over the world. Just this year, Rimowa partnered with illustrious personalities the likes of fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld, and award-winning director David Fincher to showcase their personal aluminium luggage in lieu of the line’s 80th anniversary.

If like us, you’re looking to invest in your first Rimowa aluminium suitcase, it may be difficult to make an informed decision on which model to choose. You can’t go wrong with Rimowa’s Topas line, for one. It is the brand’s iconic aluminium luggage which features a distinctive parallel-grooved case shell.

Over the years, Rimowa has released different variations of the original Topas luggage. From the quintessential Topas to the chic Topas Titanium, check out why a suitcase from the collection will be the best investment you’ll ever make — along with which one you should invest in.


Who: Modern jet-setters looking for function without compromising on form.

Rimowa’s Topas collection remains the quintessential line of aluminium suitcases from the brand, with each piece boasting its distinctive parallel-grooved case shell. Every suitcase from the collection comes with a TSA-certified combination lock, multi-wheel system for effortless manoeuvring, and a handy Flex-Divider system that keeps your things safe inside your bag during travel.
