This season, two iconic German brands have come together to announce their new collaborative partnership. Both are recognized as leaders in their respective fields, Adidas in sportswear and RIMOWA in luggage. Together they are celebrating the spirit of mobility with an inaugural capsule collection that seeks to offer explorers of the world the perfect tools to navigate the globe and escape their homes to see what the world has to offer.

Exclusively made in Germany, the cross-category collection features two contemporary designs: RIMOWA’s first-ever aluminum backpack and the Adidas NMD_S1 sneaker.

Utilitarian in its design, the collection takes on a color palette of khaki and a shimmery shade of titanium. The outdoor-inspired pieces are complete with orange accents, complimenting the major neutral tones. Inspired by a renewed need to look for fulfillment in new places, the collection was created for urban explorers seeking to meaningfully reconnect with natural landscapes.

The RIMOWA x Adidas NMD_BACKPACK has a new technical solution that makes it suitable for outdoor needs, overnight trips, and even urban exploration. Made from RIMOWA’s signature grooved aluminum, the backpack features a number of functional elements, from padded utility shoulder straps fitted with a carabiner to rope weight-bearing straps and a grab handle.

The piece also features foam ridges inspired by Adidas Boost foam overlaying the backpack’s grooved surface to ensure comfort, as well as an elasticated webbing running through its middle to secure the backpack onto the suitcase’s telescopic tubes. To allow for flat packing, a detachable gusset opens the backpack to reveal two deep zipped pockets, as well as a 16-inch laptop pocket inscribed with both of the brand's logos.

The other piece of the collection is the Adidas NMD_S1 shoe. The shoe is a modern lifestyle sneaker that keeps movement as its mantra. The RIMOWA x Adidas NMD_S1 iteration features the futuristic sneaker’s signature Primeknit uppers in a titanium-inspired colorway, with the flexible Adidas Boost midsole in a light, almost translucent base color. On the shoe’s midsole, wearers will find the coordinates of the brands’ respective headquarters in Germany, as well as a ‘Made in Germany’ imprint that signifies the partnership.

The collaboration is available for purchase on November 17th online on both Adidas’ and RIMOWA’s websites as well as in select stores.
