Legendary luggage and accessory label Louis Vuitton has created a home for football’s most covetable prize, the FIFA World Cup trophy. Commissioned by FIFA, this special order case was handmade by Louis Vuitton’s master craftsman in a historic Asnières workshop near Paris. Covered in Louis Vuitton’s iconic Monogram canvas, the travel case is fitted with the company’s signature brass lock and corners, and has a dark brown lining that complements the Trophy’s rich gold.
“We are very proud to have been chosen by FIFA to create the case in which the world’s ultimate sporting prize will in future travel the globe. This exceptional commission truly honours Louis Vuitton’s 150- year tradition of craftsmanship and savoir-faire. We are also delighted to be part of the great festival of football that the 2010 FIFA World Cup promises to be, and to renew our ties with the host country South Africa, with which we have had for many years a very special relationship.” a spokesperson for Louis Vuitton said.
