Founded in Cologne in 1898, RIMOWA is a global benchmark in premium luggage, synonymous with expert German craftsmanship. The Maison’s new partnership with Deutscher Fußball-Bund (DFB), the German Football Association, continues this ongoing celebration of its remarkable heritage. RIMOWA luggage will equip DFB’s women’s, men’s and U21 national teams for the years to come.
RIMOWA and DFB enjoy a long history together. RIMOWA accompanied the team to the World Cup in 2006 and to Sweden the following year for the U21 (under 21) European Championships. And RIMOWA equipped German players with a specially-designed collection during their World Cub victory in Brazil in 2014. This partnership has now been renewed as RIMOWA becomes official luggage partner of the DFB for the coming years.
“We are excited and extremely proud of this partnership with DFB. Our German heritage is something we deeply cherish at RIMOWA so it’s very meaningful to see the national teams carrying our suitcases. This, and our history together, makes this partnership particularly special,” says Hugues Bonnet-Masimbert, Chief Executive Officer of RIMOWA.
Both men’s and women’s teams will shortly be equipped with RIMOWA Original Cabin and Check-In L suitcases in Silver. The U21 team will carry Essential Cabin Check-In L suitcases in Black Gloss. Each suitcase will feature RIMOWA’s meticulous attention to detail and be proudly emblazoned with the official DFB eagle logo.
