What’s something LeBron James enjoys simply as much as basketball? White wine. The NBA superstar and long-time friend (and former brand ambassador) for Rimowa had a hand in producing the most recent piece in the luxury baggage brand name’s arsenal: the aluminum Twelve Bottle Case.
After James found a stackable archival case that saved bottle and glasses back in 2018, a discussion started between him and Rimowa’s engineers, kicking off the first stage of the project.Four years later on, James’dream white wine travel suitcase has actually lastly materialized. The inside of the case includes 12 padded cushions of diverse density that keep bottles in location, securing any basic silhouette of wine bottles along with broader Champagne bottles. The case can also be supported when opened by method of 2 retractable feet that lock at the bottom of each side; it’s likewise geared up with 2 security padded bars, so tourists do not need to fear a bottle falling out or walking around and breaking in transit.” It was unique for me to see an idea and a conversation we had developed into such an extraordinary item innovation for the brand name, “James stated in an e-mail.”This integrates two things I love– Rimowa and white wine– to produce something that includes worth to the travel experience. And I take a trip a lot, so I’m ecstatic about this piece being contributed to the collection. “I was able to see the brand-new red wine case firsthand during a recent press trip Rimowa hosted in Napa Valley. Made with signature aspects from Rimowa’s Traditional line consisting of the resilient grooved aluminum shell, the sleek silver case weighs 27 pounds. In spite of its weight, it’s rather simple to move; two TSA-approved locks add to its overall security. It deserves keeping in mind that the inserts can’t be eliminated, so tourists aren’t able to utilize this as a regular travel suitcase for non wine-centric trips. Rimowa Twelve Bottle Case
