If you haven't heard of Rimowa, it's the royal highness of luggage brands. These aluminum suitcases with grooves across their outer shell have developed a huge following, but they come at a hefty price. We especially love this limited-edition copper suitcase sold exclusively at Bloomingdale's, but it's a cool $1,340. Why is the brand so expensive? Rimowa describes their process on their site:
"It takes some two hundred single components and more than ninety work steps to reach that point. The very latest technologies and perfect craftsmanship complement one another here. After all, as a manufacturer rich in tradition, even today Rimowa quite intentionally performs numerous assembly and work processes by hand. We count on our highly qualified employees, their extensive expertise — and their love of detail."
With the amount of love they put into each product, you'll probably have this suitcase forever. Rimowa also offers these limited-edition versions in silver and gold at Bloomingdale's. If these special metallic options aren't your thing, there's other Rimowa options for hundreds of dollars less. We like this version for $495.
Do you think it's ridiculous to spend this kind of money on luggage? Some people feel that it's totally worth the splurge, while others wouldn't dare to drop thousands of dollars on something that's essentially a bag on wheels. Whatever you think, we can all agree that it's pretty to look at!
