Need a lift? No, not for yourself, but for your essentials, of course! Enter the RIMOWA Hand-Carry Case Hammerschlag and the RIMOWA Cabin Hammerschlag, whose name originates from the German term meaning ‘hammer hit.’ These sleek cases boast a distinctive surface that captures and reflects light. The textured aluminum finish is a nod to the brand’s history, offering a musical twist on the polished look.

Drawing connections to the cases’ unique patterns and the rhythmic motions of piano keys that produce sound. It’s like carrying a piece of musical history with you: think of it as the luggage equivalent of piano keys, producing their song of style. With such a stylish companion, you won’t need a curated playlist; your RIMOWA can become your playlist itself; if you literally know how to tap into its rhythm.


Sunglasses are a necessity, and Oakley’s latest creation, the Latch Panel sunglasses, is here to save the day. Drawing inspiration from the iconic Eyeshade frame, these shades come with side shields equipped with latch mechanisms. They’re your bodyguards for your eyes, shielding them from peripheral glare and allowing you to focus on what truly matters without any pesky distractions.
