You Have to See the Louis Vuitton World Cup 2018 Trophy Case Let the games begin!

Victory travels in style and luxury. For the second time since the 2010 Brazil World Cup, Louis Vuitton partners with the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup to design a bespoke case to house the game's official trophy.

This year, the French luxury house designed an all chromed out, leather-padded case that was handcrafted in Asnières, France, Louis Vuitton’s historic workshop. The trunk is covered in the classic laser-engraved Louis Vuitton monogram. They also designed a limited edition FIFA World Cup Match Ball Collection Trunk that reveals a collection of 13 replicas of the official match balls used at the tournaments since 1970 (all made by Adidas) with an additional football designed by Louis Vuitton. Each ball is displayed on a shelf made of beech wood and with descriptive tags in Louis Vuitton’s trademark natural cowhide leather. The house will only issue 21 trunks for purchase.

Louis Vuitton will also release a new collection that gives a nod at the FIFA World Cup. The Keepall duffel, Apollo backpacks, and a selection of smaller leather pieces will be released with an embossed version of the house’s classic Epi leather, first introduced in the 1920s with a design created using a three-stage embossing technique. This innovative and technically challenging process gives each colored hexagon a richly textured feel reminiscent of an old leather football, and each white section a sleekly smooth surface. The collection is available in three color combinations: red and white, blue and white, and black and white.
