German luggage manufacturer RIMOWA was founded by Paul Morszeck in 1898. Initially operating a saddlery shop, Morszeck began producing his own cases and trunks from wood and leather. In 1937, RIMOWA developed its first aluminum suitcase after the lightweight and flame-resistant material survived a fire at the company’s factory. In 1950, engineers added the distinctive groove, inspired by early commercial aircraft construction, that would become synonymous with the brand. Today, the grooved aluminum case remains an icon of RIMOWA's craftsmanship and innovation.
This Spring, Supreme has worked with RIMOWA on custom versions of the Topas Multiwheel suitcases in a carry-on 45L size and a larger 82L size. The suitcases feature aluminum bodies with Multiwheel® rolling wheels, TSA combination locks and 2 internal Flex-Divider systems. Made exclusively for Supreme, the suitcases will be available in Red and Black.
