Rimowa Original Cabin Twist

There have been some great collaborations, limited editions and newly designed carry-ons in 2019. The usual rule is ‘never mess with a classic’, but Rimowa has done just that on the original Cabin with a colourful twist!

Now if you use any frequent traveller forums or websites, you’ll know there are many, many Rimowa fans who swear by their cases. And the Original Cabin is possibly the most popular.

Rimowa has launched a new version of the Cabin, called Twist. It’s still the same great case but now you can personalise the appearance with a choice of different colours on the fixtures.

A Dash of Colour

There is a choice of Red, Blue or Cognac fixings that can be selected on the Silver aluminium carry-on only.

This sleek original with a pop of colour is a sophisticated blend of luxurious materials expertly engineered and thoughtfully combined for an iconic statement.


The coloured fixings include leather accents on both the grab and telescopic handles, the housing area around the dual locks and the rubber seal that runs around nearly the full circumference of the case.

There are no other differences between the Twist and Original which could make the price gap hard to swallow for some!

But the colours are well chosen and complement the world-famous classic Carry-On very well in my view.

  1. Just picked up the cognac version while on a short trip to Rome. Love the look and not a huge premium considering how unique it looks. The leather is of very nice quality commiserate with the rest of the bag
