Following the launch of last year’s first global integrated brand campaign that marked the brand’s 120th anniversary, RIMOWA continues the conversation on purposeful travel with three impactful stories featuring intimate portraits of iconic friends of the brand.
Basketball legend, LeBron James; Artistic Director Dior Men's and fashion designer, Kim Jones; and Chinese pianist prodigy, Yuja Wang all share an intimate view into their lives on the go, and how constant challenge drives them toward success. Shot across 4 counties by 3 different directors, every director worked closely with each individual icon to create an emotionally insightful, personal and visually distinct expression of their particular journey.
Kim Jones’ film is directed by Jonas & Julien through RadicalMedia Berlin and features a collage of urban scenes and textures, from Japan to India, that celebrate how the places we go are woven into our work. Created in partnership between Anomaly in Berlin and RIMOWA’s internal creative team, the campaign will be activated globally with special emphasis on RIMOWA’s seven key markets – USA, China, HK, Japan, Germany, UK, and France.
Frank Hahn, Executive Creative Director at Anomaly Berlin, comments:
"In our second year of RIMOWA’s NEVER STILL campaign we are not falling short of inspirational stories with a new line up of longtime RIMOWA owners that live this philosophy. These extraordinary personalities shape our world and culture beyond their profession. Shot in Tokyo, India, Los Angeles and Toronto we again paired each icon with a unique director and had them bring to life their genuine stories as meaningful life lessons and inspiration to travel. ‘No one builds a legacy by standing still’ is a concept that will never lose its inspirational power."
