Louis Vuitton celebrates upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia with Official Match Trophy Case.
The custom made case features laser-engraved monogram titanium (the same material used in Louis Vuitton’s FW18 menswear collection), natural cowhide leather corners, and lock and clasps made of ruthenium, a dark grey metal that has the chemical symbol Ru, in reference to the tournament’s 2018 host country.
Handmade in Asnieres, France, the case will be revealed on the pitch in Moscow at the Opening Match on 14 June, and at the Final on 15 July.
Louis Vuitton has teamed up with adidas and FIFA to create an exclusive and truly unique match ball trunk. With only 21 available for purchase worldwide, the trunk will hold 13 re-editions of the Official Match balls used at the World Cup since 1970 and one Louis Vuitton specially-designed football.
