Raffles Hotel Singapore stands as a legendary historical monument, luxurious hotel, and shopping destination all rolled into one. So it comes as no surprise that Rimowa has chosen the storied hotel to debut a new store, as well as exclusive travel accessories in light of the Raffles Hotel's grand reopening after two years of renovation.

Available at Rimowa's stunning new outpost at Raffles Hotel Singapore, this limited edition collection offers a fern and fauna inspired green leather luggage tag, kiss-cut vinyl stickers that puts a playful twist on iconic emblems of the hotel, and hot stamping designs including a reimagined take of the hotel's name and ever popular Singapore Sling cocktail. It's a collection that's only worthy to be fitted out on your signature Rimowa, with eclectic designs transpired from the German luxury brand's appointment of various artists.

What's more? You can also find new colourways of the iconic silver aluminium luggage with the release of smashing bold hues in Marine and Scarlet. These colours weren't picked at random, but come from a place of the Rimowa traveller who chooses to make a distinct statement no matter where the next adventure beckons. Assembled with none other than the brand's premium quality aluminium, the latest collection of Rimowa Original luggages are coloured in by anodising processes. Simply put, the coloured pigments will be inscribed directly on the luggage for a vibrantly hued shine gleaming atop the aluminium surface. It will act as more than just a decorative coat, but also guards against corrosion and added resistance from wear and tear.

The store at Raffles Hotel Singapore also grants complementary services for all hotel guests such as luggage repair and cleaning services. After all, our carriers need equal pampering as we do. On top of that, Rimowa Raffles Singapore is the first in the region to reveal Rimowa Unique — a customisable service where you can design your Rimowa Classic. Add a pop of colour to distinguish your suitcase from the rest of the pack with seven different coloured leather handle straps, matching wheel companions, and luggage tags that will be available from mid-November. After all, all Rimowa luggages might have been created equal, but you may definitely choose otherwise.
