Hot Shopping: German Engineering

German über-brand Rimowa says “guten tag” to Canada by opening its first Canadian flagship store in chi-chi Yorkville. Since 1898, the family-owned company has been a leading manufacturer of lightweight aluminum suitcases with a distinctive groove pattern. In 2000, Rimowa debuted a polycarbonate series of luggage, revolutionizing the industry. Traditionally used for airplane panels, the shock-proof and resilient material means dents are a temporary nuisance—after taking a beating, it regains its original form. Each of the company’s carryalls is composed of 200 individual parts and can take up to 90 steps to put together. Open daily. 101 Bloor St. W., 416-922-2644.
