Rimowa X Pride Month : celebrating diversity

June is Pride Month. Many may know it, but few are actually aware of what it means and where it comes from. In the United States of the 70s, especially in New York, the LGBTQIA+ community was the target of police harassment and brutality, helped by a repressive legal system that would suppress their rights. The police would regularly organise raids in gay bars with extreme violence. But on June 28th 1969, the people at the Stonewall Inn – amongst them Marsha P. Johnson – had had enough and decided to fight back. This act of resistance, now known as the Stonewall riots, is at the foundation of what pride is today and the celebrations as we know them. This month, Rimowa decided to show their support to the LGBTQIA+ community by asking five queer artists to integrate their iconic suitcase into a series of photos and drawings. From Stephen Milner and his Californian, 70s-inspired aesthetic to the drawings of Jeffrey Cheung and Jack Taylor Lovatt’s photography, this collaboration evokes the art of traveling and romance in a different way and proves that even a 100-year-old luggage brand can be in tune with our times.
