For the second year in a row, the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco™ Trophy was awarded in a bespoke Louis Vuitton travel case.
Carrying on the partnership between Louis Vuitton and the Automobile Club de Monaco, the trunk showcases Louis Vuitton’s traditional savoir-faire while drawing inspiration from the heritage of the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco™. Seven distinct steps performed by three specialised artisans were required to create this one-of-a-kind trunk, from its initial conception to the structure’s woodwork, canvas coating, lozinage binding, metallic fittings and final assembly. The iconic Monogram canvas is adorned with the red shade of the Monaco flag while the red lines, tracing the “V” for “Victory”, are rimmed with a white strip, reminiscent of the unique urban route of the track where driving excellence goes hand in hand with power and precision. This tailor-made trunk, in the colours of the Principality, holds the trophy depicting the 19 turns of the 3.337-kilometer track.
