We find many of them tacky exercises in marketing, their major point of keeping the PR/media machine rolling and certain brands at the forefront of consumer consciousness. Needless to say, it’s not something we support here at StyleZeitgeist. But once in a blue moon something interesting happens, or at least unexpected, when two brands we respect come together and make something. Why not?The new Aesop x Rimowa collaboration is one of these rare things. Knowing the uncompromising nature of Aesop, we pay attention to what they do, and Rimowa, well, is Rimowa, the “whatever car manufacturer you think is most prestigious” of luggage. The two came together to make a travel kit. The Köln kit is obviously made from that deliciously recognizable Rimowa aluminum, with a custom-made wooden inlay, and is stuffed with Aesop goodies - shampoo, conditioner, body cleanser and body balm, its Parsley seed cleansers, lip cream, toothpaste, and mouthwash. All this goodness will set you back a hefty $500, but maybe it’s time to add something to your life besides an eighth leather jacket?

The travel kit is available in select Aesop and Rimowa shops worldwide starting tomorrow.

The idea for this shoot came to me after I saw the F/W 18 Undercover show, "We Are Infinite." I have not been touched by a fashion show so deeply in a long time. The collection was based on "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," a film that I have not seen. The film was based on the eponymous book that I have not read. I wanted to watch the film with my high school-age daughter, but she wanted us to read the book first. So we did, and watched the movie after. It is now her favorite book, and one of her favorite films. So when the next time someone tells you that fashion is frivolous and meaningless, point them here.
