When premium luggage magnate RIMOWA meets the essence of two global sports legends, Lewis Hamilton and Kylian Mbappé, and seamlessly integrates it with their “Never Still 4” campaign, it translates into a narrative redefining travel. This tale not just emphasizes the physical journey but celebrates the transformative influence it casts on the traveler’s soul.
Sir Lewis Hamilton, the behemoth of Formula 1, has made a reputation for himself, not just for his impeccable skill on the tracks but also for his ability to connect with the world around him. Those countless pit stops, intercontinental transits, and roaring applauds in varied arenas have bestowed upon him more than just trophies. They have sculpted his philosophy, his vision, and his perceptions. Echoing his profound relationship with travel, Hamilton remarked, “It’s through travel that I’m truly inspired.” This sentiment isn’t just about moving from one place to another but about embracing the myriad experiences, lessons, and inspirations the world presents.
Parallel to Lewis Hamilton‘s racetrack epiphanies is Rosé’s melodious journey. This global superstar harmoniously tunes into the frequency of travel, defining ‘home’ not as a geographical entity but as an emotional sanctuary. “Home has become more of a state of mind than a specific place,” she shares, symbolizing that home isn’t just where you are born but where you become.
Now, imagine a football field, the lush green grass, the intensity, the passion. The spotlight here is on the young football virtuoso, Kylian Mbappé. Beyond his magnificent goals and nimble footwork lies a young man enamored by the world, learning with every expedition. His interactions with diverse communities, cultures, and mindsets evoke a maturity and wisdom. To encapsulate his essence, Mbappé asserts, “When you travel, you see different types of lives, and you learn a lot.”
The genius behind the music that accentuates this journey of three icons is none other than Hans Zimmer. His compositions for RIMOWA’s films provide an auditory journey parallel to the visual narratives, making this his second melodic rendezvous with the brand this year.
The campaign, orchestrated with the precision of Anomaly London, does not just capture the journey but emphasizes the reasons behind the journey. The close-ups, the scenic landscapes, and the genuine interactions serve as an authentic mirror to Hamilton’s introspective drives through Mexico City, Rosé’s exploration in Paris, and Kylian Mbappé’s heartwarming venture with his foundation students at the Philharmonie de Paris.
Encapsulating the ethos of this campaign, Emelie De Vitis, Senior Vice President Product & Marketing, RIMOWA, mentions, “This 4th chapter of our “Never Still” campaign signals an evolution as we look forward to what travel means post-pandemic, as a journey towards progress.“
This synergy of RIMOWA with Lewis Hamilton, Rosé, and Kylian Mbappé isn’t just about showcasing a product. It’s about endorsing a philosophy. It’s a call to move, to evolve, and to let journeys transform you. This is not just about celebrating travel; it’s about cherishing the traveler’s transformation. It is the celebration of the “Never Still” spirit, a sentiment RIMOWA has seamlessly encapsulated.
In today’s era, where travel is gradually gaining momentum, RIMOWA‘s “Never Still 4” presents a timely reminder. It reminds us that our bags may carry our belongings, but it’s our experiences that shape our essence. Every journey, every mile, every encounter is an opportunity to evolve, to change, and to be a better version of oneself. It’s not about the destination; it’s about the journey and what you become along the way.
