RIMOWA Hosts PFW Dinner Paris Fashion Week SS18
Represented by BPCM.
We’ve never owned a Rimowa, so we can’t speak directly to its charms. (Although we’ve looked at the new ones with the electronic tags, which are intriguing.)
But it was hard to not take note of a dinner held during Paris Fashion Week that played host to a who’s who of fashion notables including Carine Roitfeld, Karlie Kloss, Sidney Toledano, and Bella Hadid, hosted by Rimowa CEO Alexandre Arnault.

Held at Restaurant 1728 in Paris, the event marked the 80th anniversary of the RIMOWA aluminum case, a work in progress since 1937.
As the brand says, “throughout the years, it has evolved its shapes and iconic designs, while collecting the stories of its owners through records on its aluminum surfaces. For the past 80 years, our aluminum suitcases have been a record of our life in Cologne and although they’re made by our hands – with every bang, scratch and sticker — they’re defined by yours.”
Something to keep in mind if, like me, you like to spend a lot on suitcases and then keep them indoors for fear of them ever getting dinged.
Happy 80th to Rimowa.
