Ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar Louis Vuitton has designed an elegant leather case that will house the World Cup Trophy.
Specially made by highly skilled artisans in the House’s workshop the FIFA World Cup Trophy Travel Case has been carefully designed to transport the FIFA World Cup on its journey to the Middle East from France. The trophy is made from 6.175 kilograms of 18-carat gold and malachite and is presented to the winning team each year.
The Louis Vuitton case is covered in lightweight yet hardwearing laser-engraved Monogram titanium, a material previously used in Louis Vuitton’s menswear collections. Its corners are protected with cowhide leather and the lock and six clasps are made from ruthenium, a strong dark-grey metal.
The travel case was custom-made by Louis Vuitton’s expert craftsmen and women and showcases the House’s ability to create highly complicated and impressive travel objects. The Asnières workshop continues to produce around 450 special pieces per year.
To coincide with the unveiling of the trunk Louis Vuitton has introduced an exclusive capsule collection of leather goods for men. This offering combines the elegance of Louis Vuitton with a sporty style to capture the mood of the upcoming competition.
