Louis Vuitton designs trophy case for 2014 FIFA World Cup

Monday, 16 June 2014
French luxury fashion house, Louis Vuitton, has designed a custom-made traveling trunk for the 2014 FIFA World Cup trophy.


The luxury, one-of-a-kind trunk will house the trophy, which will be transported to the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro on the last day of the football tournament and awarded to the winning team.

“The case opens from the front and at the top to allow the trophy to be easily removed when, at the final game on July 13, it will be delivered to the captain of the winning game,” revealed Louis Vuitton to WWD.

The traveling case is also said to feature the French fashion house's iconic LV monogram print, as well as classic brass corners and locks.

This is the second consecutive collaboration between Louis Vuitton and FIFA, the international governing body of soccer. The luxury fashion house also designed a unique case for the 2010 World Cup trophy, which was given to Spain in South Africa.

Louis Vuitton reportedly receives roughly 450 special orders each year, which represents a core part of the French fashion house's business.
