We’ve all been there :  Struggling in a metro station with a heavy, bulky suitcase trying to make it up the stairs without becoming a sweaty mess.

As it’s highly unlikely that a handsome Prince Charming will come to your aid and  sweep you and your heavy luggage away, it’s best to avoid this type of situation all-together.

Enter: Rimowa, the lightest suitcases in the world.

Founded in 1898 by German luggage manufacturer Paul  Morszeck,  even though the first Rimowa suitcases were made out of wood,  strong and lightweight materials were already hallmarks of the brand.  It was in 1937 when Paul Morszeck’s son Richard became fascinated by aircraft aluminium, and 13 years later he made the first suitcase out of the material, which instantly became a must-have among the travel elite!

Over half a century later, Rimowa is still on the cutting edge of luxurious light-weight design. Their newest creation? TGIFguide favorite : polycarbonate luggage.

Rimowa was the first company to ever create luggage from this type of material, and besides being exceptionally light and virtually indestructible, the suitcases come in pretty colors like gold, red and purple!

From Salsa Air, the lightest of the collection, to Salsa Deluxe Hybrid, a heavier collection due to more bells and whistles like pockets and a sturdier handle, there’s definitely something for every Princess.

Think of Rimowa as your new Prince Charming.
