Editor’s Notes: Ahead of the hotly anticipated release of RIMOWA’s forthcoming OFF-WHITE collab, the brand commissioned director Frank Lebon to create a two minute short film that follows a young woman on her travels and explores what goes into her “personal belongings.” The video, which you can view below, was produced by Camera Club and gives us a closer look at how people may be using the RIMOWA x OFF–WHITE luggage cases upon release.

The transparent luggage case was available at select OFF-WHITE and RIMOWA outlets as of June 25, with an initial release in Europe. Before its debut, the collaborative piece was revealed at the OFF-WHITE menswear show at Paris Fashion Week on June 20. It costs €850 (approximately $990).

Speaking to The Business of Fashion, Virgil Abloh explained the concept behind the transparent design. “It’s like 3.0 of personalization. It’s not just putting your initials on it, but allowing another layer to come in play,” he said. “There’s an emotional component to owning [the suitcase] and you become a performance art piece just by using the thing. It’s like putting your items on display and rethinking the premise of a product.”
