DFS Group Celebrates the Off-White™ x Rimowa Collaboration Launch with a Cocktail Event at T Galleria, Hong Kong, Canton Road
OCTOBER 25, 2018 - DFS Group, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, and German luxury luggage brand RIMOWA co-hosted an energetic, fun-filled event to celebrate the launch of the Off-White™ x RIMOWA limited-edition collection at a dedicated pop-up store at T Galleria by DFS, Hong Kong, Canton Road.
The urban-themed event drew a fashionable crowd of more than 120 VIPs, customers, media and socialites. Guests included Faye Tsui, Declan Chan, Elly Lam, Antonia Li, René Chu and Bird Tse amongst others. Guests also enjoyed an interactive photobooth and music by DJ Arthur Bray from YETI OUT.
The Hong Kong pop-up was inspired by the luggage carousel-style design created by Virgil Abloh for the collection’s launch at HYPEBEAST’s inaugural cultural festival, Hypefest, in New York earlier this month. The showcase included the latest limited-edition collection of “See Through” luggage, including the “See Through” Black transparent case with black wheels, handles and accents and the “See Through” White transparent case featuring white wheels, handles, and accents.
The Off-White™ x RIMOWA “See Through” luggage pieces are based on the RIMOWA Essential. Their see-through design means they have no interior lining and instead include the RIMOWA Flex-Divider system in black or white, a black or white case cover with the Off-White™ striped design, and a set of black or white cotton “Miscellaneous” bags for more efficient – and modest – packing. The cases are fitted with RIMOWA’s silent Multiwheel system for optimum manoeuvrability, TSA combination locks, a new custom Off-White™ luggage belt, and an exclusive transparent amenity kit containing an additional set of orange wheels.
The pop-up is open to the public for viewing from October 25-28, exclusively in Hong Kong at T Galleria by DFS, Hong Kong, Canton Road.
