RIMOWA, a renowned luxury luggage brand, has announced a partnership with the German Football Association (DFB), further cementing their dedication to expert German craftsmanship.

RIMOWA will be providing premium luggage to the DFB’s women’s, men’s, and U21 national teams for the foreseeable future. This partnership is not new, as RIMOWA has previously accompanied the DFB team to various events, including the World Cup in 2006 and the U21 European Championships in Sweden in 2007. RIMOWA also designed a collection of suitcases for the German players during their 2014 World Cup victory in Brazil. The brand’s long-standing relationship with the DFB has now been renewed, and they will officially become the DFB’s luggage partner for the coming years. The luggage that will be provided to the teams includes the RIMOWA Original Cabin and Check-In L suitcases in Silver for both men’s and women’s teams and Essential Cabin Check-In L suitcases in Black Gloss for the U21 team, all featuring the official DFB eagle logo. Hugues Bonnet-Masimbert, CEO of RIMOWA, stated that the partnership is significant due to the company’s German heritage and their previous history with the DFB.

RIMOWA has been producing exceptional travel gear for discerning customers worldwide since 1898. The German Maison is now expanding its horizons in the world of functional luxury by collaborating with another historic German brand, GEWA, to craft the ultimate violin case.

The special edition RIMOWA × GEWA Violin Case Silver, produced in Germany, showcases the shared values of technical innovation and functional design of both brands. It boasts a robust exterior made from RIMOWA’s signature grooved aluminum and a hand-finished microfiber interior that incorporates GEWA’s neck pad system.

To commemorate this extraordinary creation, RIMOWA has partnered with renowned French soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician, Renaud Capuçon, who is also a friend of the brand. It was an easy decision for Capuçon to choose the new RIMOWA × GEWA Violin Case Silver to safeguard his Guarneri ‘del Gesù violin, the ‘Panette Stern,’ which was built in 1737.

Throughout the journey to a significant performance in New York City, Capuçon relied on the Maison and the exceptional RIMOWA × GEWA Violin Case Silver to transport his precious instrument. Given his constant travels to different venues worldwide, a reliable case is essential to safeguard his valuable violin, making the RIMOWA × GEWA Violin Case Silver his ultimate travel companion.
