The World Cup Trophy Travels First Class in a Custom Louis Vuitton Case
Louis Vuitton has also been bitten by the soccer bug. The luxury brand recently revealed that FIFA has commissioned a one-of-a-kind trunk to house the solid gold World Cup trophy. The bespoke carrying case will be fitted with iconic LV monogrammed leather and brass fittings and custom made in their renowned Asnières workshop. This marks the second consecutive collaboration between FIFA and Louis Vuitton. The brand also created the 2010 World Cup trophy case.
Not only will the trophy arrive in first-class style, it will be presented by supermodel Gisele Bündchen. The Brazilian beauty will bestow the coveted trophy to the winners of the global game on July 13. Meanwhile, Bündchen has been not-so-secretly cheering for her home team, according to her posts on Instagram.
