Slated to launch on 21 April, Rimowa Porsche have collaborated on a limited-edition handheld case, dubbed the Rimowa x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita.
The two historic German companies are known for their relentless pursuit of perfection — both stay true to their rich cultural heritage while focusing on functional design, technical innovation and high performance.
Thrilled in seeing the momentous collaboration brought to life, Emelie De Vitis, Chief Marketing Officer at Rimowa shared: “Our partnership celebrates the unparalleled quality of German design as we both poured our wealth of expertise into a one-of-a-kind piece.”
“The partnership with Rimowa felt natural for both teams right from the start for me, this is always an indicator that our brand values align in a great way,” Robert Ader, Chief Marketing Officer of Porsche AG said, hoping that fans of both brands will be excited about the collaboration.
Made in Cologne, Germany, the sleek case pays homage to the brands’ most iconic design elements. It is crafted from Rimowa’s signature grooved aluminium and draws design cues from the first generation of the Porsche 911. With its highly functional wheel-free design, which features TSA-approved locks and a gleaming aluminium handle, the case can fit neatly in a Porsche car’s boot.
The high-gloss accents and details of the Hand-Carry Case reflect the silver mirror finishing of a first-generation Porsche 911. Clad on the sides are black leather straps attached by polished crest-shaped holders that echo traditional hood straps. And proudly placed on the case’s front is the authentic Porsche crest.
Inside the ultra-durable case is a zipped U-pocket and an X-strap to keep belongings secure while in transit. To complete the 911-inspired aesthetic, the Hand-Carry Case also has Houndstooth Pepita fabric, black leather accents, an imprinted Porsche crest, and a yellow instructional label similar to the engine compartment labels found in a Porsche trunk.
During the launch party on 8 April, the German luxury labels also premiered a faux spy thriller spotlighting the Hand-Carry Case Pepita. Shot by Dimitri Basil across Germany and Los Angeles, the retro spy film includes five distinct parts. Enjoy the videos on Rimowa’s YouTube playlist.
The exclusive case will be complemented by co-branded luggage tags. A Rimowa x Porsche Pepita Sticker Set featuring a trio of retro stickers will be sold separately.
With only 911 numbered pieces produced, the Rimowa x Porsche Hand-Carry Case Pepita will be available starting 21 April at €2,250 (US$2,468). The case can be purchased at select Rimowa stores, across Porsche’s global network of dealerships, and at shop.porsche.com.
