Well, I believe I've finally found my dream luggage.
I am in pretty desperate need of a new carry-on sized roller bag. Both the wheels on my bag need to be briskly kicked into place every trip to keep from rolling off into the sunset!
On more than one occasion I've been close to purchasing the classic Rimowa Topas cabin-sized bag in aluminum. I don't care that it's a bit heavier than normal bags (being aluminum and all), I don't care that it will get dented and scratched and airline stickers will get stuck to it. It was the 1950's blue interior which always made me grimace and think twice.
Just now I was thinking- wouldn't it be great if you could customize a Rimowa (a black interior was all I was looking for) but a quick look at Rimowa's site has revealed to me a new Topas collection called "Stealth" in MATTE. BLACK. ANODIZED. ALUMINUM. YES.... YES.... YES!!! It's like the travel gods have answered my prayers. I'm hyperventilating a tiny bit.
Now if only this version didn't cost an arm and a leg! Slight flaw in my dream come true. BUT JUST LOOK AT IT:
