Rimowa + Moncler = ?

When these two companies get together, fireworks is bound to happen.  In this case, Rimowa took what Moncler is known for, padded down jackets, and translate it into their luggage collection. 

For those of you who's not too familiar with Rimowa, here's the 411.  Basically the company was found in 1898.  It manufactured luggage but not the metal type that Rimowa is known for.  In 1950, Rimowa built the first structural suitcase and that proves to be extremely popular with the jet set crowds.  In 2000, Rimowa start to make polycarbonate shell suitcases.  This material is impact-resistant, lightweight, and nearly indestructible polycarbonate shell returns to its original shape after pressure has been released.  Since then, this German company's suitcases have become popular with celebrities such as Bradley Cooper, Jessica Alba, and Liev Schreiber.

You can get your special edition Rimowa at US Moncler website or the German one.  I noticed that the German website is definitely cheaper than US...... I wonder why?
