Iconic luggage manufacturer RIMOWA has unveiled its first luxury sunglasses range, built to withstand the rigours of travel. The RIMOWA Eyewear collection boasts five contemporary takes on classic shapes and brings the brand’s proven construction techniques to the category.
Having equipped travellers with luggage for over 120 years, the permanent RIMOWA eyewear collection updates favourites like the aviator with design cues from early aviation and pilot essentials – much like RIMOWA’s aluminium luggage grooves first inspired by aircraft fuselage.
The collection, named RIMOWA Bridge, is crafted from two pieces of mask overlaid and assembled by pins, echoing trademark engineering details like RIMOWA’s industrial rivets and seal. The result is a refined thickness of frame which is built to last, without adding bulk or weight.
Check out the shapes below:
RIMOWA Eyewear will be priced from AU$500 and be available from July 9th, 2020, at RIMOWA Westfield Sydney and online at RIMOWA.com.
