No it’s not an Instagram filter ??? We’re excited to present @rimowa + @alexisrael next week at Frieze Art Fair in Los Angeles! Popup Feb 14-16 Melrose/La Cienega. General release by Summer. Color graded *ALUMINIUM* suitcases! Inspired by the skies of Alex’s hometown: LA ???? It has been an amazing project to work on with one of my favorite artists. Teams incredibly engaged – the engineering behind this product is nuts!
The suitcases’ exterior shell and wheels are essentially treated with tones of blue, light purple, pink and light orange in a faded finish to reflect the colors of the vibrant sky in Los Angeles during sunset and sunrise.
Both suitcases will be officially unveiled at the Frieze Art Fair in Los Angeles via a pop-up beginning February 14.
