Sometimes you really do want to stand out from the crowd; when it comes to finding your suitcase in a sea of blacks and greys at the baggage claim conveyor belt for example. With luxury luggage brand Rimowa’s new, special edition Salsa Deluxe Ipanema Blue Metallic suitcases (pictured below), however, that won’t be a problem anymore.

According to the brand, the new shade of blue chosen for this special edition Salsa Deluxe suitcase was named after the “famed Ipanema beach lined with golden sand overlooking clear turquoise waters in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil” and is “reminiscent of the sparkling clear water as the sunlight reflects off the water surface”.

But don’t let just the funky new colour convince you that this suitcase is worth the investment, the Rimowa Salsa suitcases are handcrafted from a UV-resistant polycarbonate that can withstand up to 125°C; has the amazing Rimowa multiwheel system which means you never have to drag your bag; and the super handy ‘Add a Bag’ attachment so you can add other bags to your main suitcase leaving your hands free for important things like your passport and shopping. There is even a built-in TSA-approved lock so you don’t have to worry about security.

What more do you need? Happy travels.
