3.1 Phillip Lim Opens at Waikiki International Market Place 

3.1 Phillip Lim announces opening of its Hawaii boutique

3.1 Phillip Lim is thrilled to announce the opening of its new Hawaii boutique at the much anticipated, Waikiki International Market Place. Located at the base of the center’s stunning 150-year-old banyan tree, the 1,100-square foot space marks the brand’s 4th freestanding retail location in the United States – following New York, Los Angeles and Miami – and its 17th store worldwide. The Waikiki location will carry an assortment of Women’s and Men’s Ready-to-wear, Accessories, and Footwear from seasonal collections. The store will open with Spring 2017: a collection filled with vibrant florals and romantic pastels, punctuated with pops of bright color – a fitting tribute to the abundant vegetation and lush botanicals of Waikiki, Honolulu’s storied beachfront destination on the beautiful island of Oʻahu.

“I am honored to bring the full 3.1 Phillip Lim experience to beautiful Waikiki – an inspiring, vibrant community of local inhabitants and global travelers. When designing the store, my desire was to create a breezy, laidback yet sophisticated experience for the Waikiki customer… a modern luxury that romances reality.” - Phillip Lim

Designed in collaboration with MR Architecture + Decor - Read More

Designed in collaboration with New York based architecture firm, MR Architecture + Decor, 3.1 Phillip Lim Waikiki is a modern mix of minimal, classic décor with a nod to Hawaii heritage. The design of the store will continue the evolution of the brand’s unique ‘Studio Luxury’ concept, an approach inspired by dynamic, creative studio environments. Notable design elements include: a glass and coral stone façade, a sleek green lacquered vitrine, marble display plinths, a sculptural rattan chair with a vintage inspired tropical print, and a carefully considered color palette. The inviting, casual mix of unexpected materials, curated furniture selection, and details inspired by Hawaii’s culture and landscape, reinforce that the store is both specific to its location, and entirely personal to Phillip himself.

To commemorate the opening, 3.1 Phillip Lim has created a limited-edition hand painted Aloha ’31 Hour’ bag available exclusively at the Waikiki store. The bag will retail for $895 and is available immediately.

About RIMOWA

RIMOWA is one of the leading premium brands worldwide for cases made from aluminum and the high-tech material polycarbonate, and it is one of the few manufacturers of travel luggage still producing in Germany. One could say that RIMOWA is probably the only manufacturer with a history stretching back over more than 118 years with a distinctive, deep-rooted tradition – an exceptional position in the industry. To RIMOWA, ‘Made in Germany’ and ‘German engineering’ are synonymous with outstanding materials, brilliant technology and extraordinary product design, crafted to the highest possible quality. For decades now, the identifying feature of the collections, which are being continually optimized, has been the elegant and unmistakable groove structure of the case shells. The traditional company is based in Cologne, has four production facilities worldwide including Czech Republic, Canada and Brazil, and sells its products in over 65 countries worldwide through selected dealers and its own stores, the number of which is being continuously expanded across the globe.

The RIMOWA Ala Moana Center and Waikiki store have one of the largest selections of RIMOWA in the USA, with many lines not carried anywhere else.  RIMOWA is most recognized for its line of premium aluminum and polycarbonate luggage and suitcases, and has stores worldwide in Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, Singapore and Taipei, to name just a few.

Rimowa Online

English

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 Orders

Online 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.

RIMOWA logo

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.”

RIMOWA caseThe 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 RIMOWA fakedetermination 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.
