“RIMOWA’s ‘Never Still’ is not a concept that loses steam after one campaign – it’s an idea on which to build,” began Alexandre Arnault, CEO at RIMOWA. “As a brand dedicated to the heritage of consumer-focused craftsmanship, longevity and innovation, RIMOWA is committed to participating in the conversation by adding meaningful cultural context to our products. Together with this group of diverse global icons, we continue to open up a conversation beyond travel to explore what it means and takes to move forward.”

Each of the three protagonists exemplify that mastery is a journey with no ending, and that a lasting legacy is never built by remaining stagnant. The first iteration of the brand’s global campaign displayed this philosophy, while the second puts more of a spotlight on the adversities faced along the road—the real ones and the metaphorical ones—and the drive and determination that is needed to overcome these challenges to find success.
