Karl Lagerfeld, Martha Stewart Collaborate with Rimowa for 80th Anniversary Campaign [Refinery29]
Karl Lagerfeld, Martha Stewart, Lykke Li, Carine Roitfeld and Virgil Abloh have teamed up with luxury luggage maker Rimowa for a new campaign in honor of the 80th anniversary of the brand's signature aluminum suitcase. The campaign will feature a photograph of each star's personal luggage — some in perfect condition, others decorated with stickers and ribbons, and others covered in dents or scratches — on a pedestal, alongside a quote from its owner. The campaign is helmed by 24-year-old co-CEO Alexandre Arnault, son of LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault (LVMH bought the luggage brand in 2016, and Alexandre was appointed earlier this year).
At RIMOWA, we say aluminium has persönlichkeit, or personality. Because it changes. It evolves. It lives. In celebration of the 80th anniversary of the original aluminium suitcase, we invited director @dantobinsmith to examine our unique process at RIMOWA’s factory in Cologne.
