Expanding beyond travel to lifestyle products, RIMOWA has added the likes of iPhone cases, eyewear, and a soon-to-be cult favourite to its repertoire of permanent offerings: the RIMOWA Personal. A mini, crossbody iteration of the brand’s famed suitcases, the Personal reimagines the concept of mobility in this time of restricted travel.
First unveiled as part of a sold-out, limited-edition Dior Spring/Summer 2020 collaboration with Kim Jones, the cases are crafted from ultra-lightweight and dent-resistant polycarbonate—marking RIMOWA’s 20th anniversary of its pioneering polycarbonate suitcase. Equal parts sleek and edgy, these cases make the perfect transitional bag that will carry you from desk to dinner dates.

Available in black, white, as well as seasonal shades of Desert Rose and Cactus that match the hues of the latest RIMOWA Essential collections inspired by the Mojave Desert, the Personal cases are secured with tonal leather straps and finished with metal rivets, rings and hooks in silver or gunmetal. Their roomy, leather-lined interiors feature two open compartments, a central zipped pocket and three card slots for all your essentials.
Clutch, crossbody, or over the shoulder—wear yours with or without its adjustable and detachable strap for added versatility. What’s not to love about a functional, durable bag that also scores high on style?
