RIMOWA LAUNCHES ITS FIRST OWN ONLINE SHOP IN EUROPE
RIMOWA’S first online shop is now open. The soft launch took place in Austria on January 31, 2017, and now, after an extension of the pilot phase in Germany in February, the online shop is also available in the other member states of the EU, as well as in Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, and Andorra.
The online shop is integrated in the existing RIMOWA website and enables RIMOWA customers to find their way around intuitively and view and order from the entire product range at a glance. To highlight the unique character of the shop, RIMOWA decided to dispense with the modular concepts familiar from many other online shops. The warehouse operated by the company at its headquarters in Cologne also brings customers the additional convenience of transparency and extremely fast order handling. A further positive aspect is the centralized customer service concept with its own, in-house call center with a team of agents specially trained for handling service inquiries relating to orders and the ordering process.
Online OrdersOnline orders can be placed either as a guest visitor to the website, or with a personal login that can be used for all RIMOWA processes. Customers with a MyRIMOWA account can log in to the online shop and theRIMOWA App, for instance to enable them to use the RIMOWA Electronic Tag. The POS search function on the website has also been improved to increase traffic in high street outlets.

Luggage manufacturer RIMOWA GmbH has won another victory in defense of its trademark brand – the “groove design.” A court in Taiwan issued a judgment confirming that the RIMOWA “groove design” is a well-known symbol that is protected under the Taiwanese Fair Trade Act. In reaching its decision, the court determined that the “Deseno” luggage brand used a design that is strongly similar to the RIMOWA “groove design” and that the use of such a design is likely to cause confusion amongst consumers as to the source of the goods or that it would create a false association with RIMOWA’s products.
RIMOWA’s President and CEO Dieter Morszeck, is very satisfied with the Taiwanese court’s ruling, “This judgment proves that consumers are aware of the brand character of the RIMOWA groove design.”
The decision of the Taiwanese court also underscores that RIMOWA products have reached an important milestone in their market position, namely that of a well-known or famous product. In Taiwan, only products that have achieved this status are awarded the increased level of protection.
In addition to the victory in Taiwan, RIMOWA succeeded in defending its rights again in the beginning of 2016 against the manufacturer of the VIKLAND line of luggage. The VIKLAND luggage line was determined to have infringed on RIMOWA’s trademark groove design as well as infringing RIMOWA’s wheel castor and luggage compartment divider patents. The obvious similarities between the Vikland and the RIMOWA luggage lines, justified the determination in the court’s eyes that Vilkand was misrepresenting the origin of its goods and creating a false association with RIMOWA. RIMOWA was permitted to seize the luggage. The fate of the infringing luggage can be seen on this YouTube video: www.youtube.com/user/RIMOWA1898.
