Virgil Abloh is debuting the new cases through a luggage-carousel “exhibit.” Abloh’s transparent suitcases, first released over the summer, force customers to artfully sort the guts of their suitcases—the shirts, underwear, and toiletries you haphazardly throw into the bag are now on display for everyone to see. After the release of his first collaboration with the 120-year-old hard-goods brand, Abloh told Business of Fashion, “It’s like 3.0 of personalization. It’s not just putting your initials on it but allowing another layer to come in play.” Abloh, for what it’s worth, likes to put a bag from retailer Dover Street Market inside his. As most Abloh-blessed items do, the first collection of suitcases sold out Concorde-fast. But now Abloh and Rimowa are releasing another collection together—yet another new set of luggage for globe-trotting hypebeasts the world over. Together Abloh and Rimowa will continue to put out transparent cases that come with either black or white finishes, with a luggage belt thrown into the mix. A third bag with the words PERSONAL and BELONGINGS on it will also release online.
