Pack Up Your Virtual Luggage With the Latest RIMOWA and RTFKT Collab
Next stop: The Metaverse.
LVMH-owned RIMOWA has tapped RTFKT to merge the world of digital and physical craftsmanship in an all-new partnership. Dubbed RIMOWA x RTFKT, the collaboration encompasses a brand-new collection of NFTs, a limited-edition suitcase and a robot collectible that brings the ultimate experience for Web3 enthusiasts.
The release comprises 888 NFTs and exclusive cabin suitcase pieces alongside 2222 space robot worker digital collectables. In a bid to continue the German luxury label’s rich history in innovation and pioneering technology, the release pushes a forward-thinking approach, inviting the community to solve challenges and uncover a hacked Rimowa x RTFKT space station — necessary to mint the limited edition NFTs.
Following the innovative challenge, an exclusive digital event will be held where holders of the NFT are able to redeem a physical version of the luggage — featuring pixelated motifs and RIMOWA and RTFKT’s iconic iconography. The event will also grant the opportunity to mint exclusive assets created by RIMOWA and RTFKT, including four different Avatar Wearables.
“This collaboration is a fantastic opportunity for two brands who excel in their fields to come together to create products that can live both in the digital and physical realm. To enter the Metaverse with RTFKT is truly exciting, as it allows us to explore what travel means there. It’s a space that takes creativity and collaboration to great heights and offers new ways to engage with different audiences” says Emelie De Vitis, Chief Marketing Officer at RIMOWA, in the exclusive press release.
“Working with RIMOWA has been a dream of ours since day one. Who wouldn’t be honored to be able to bring their iconic designs into our world and create a spaceship, robot and travel tools for Web3 builders and hackers? We really put all our passion into this project, while pushing boundaries in terms of the minting experience, 3D space and draw to raffle system. We can’t wait for people to see the physical luggage, and to discover their Clone Wearables once they forge”, adds RTFKT Co-Founder Benoit Pagotto.
