Victory Travels in Louis Vuitton: the House has once again created a new FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Travel Trunk in which the Trophy can be safely transported and displayed. The result is a beautiful titanium-covered, special-order case designed and handmade at the House’s workshops in Asnières, France. A gracious and intelligent means of transporting and displaying football’s greatest prize, this elegant case continues Louis Vuitton’s 160-year association with legends: from royalty, writers and explorers to the most recognisable trophy in the world.
Specially made by highly skilled artisans in Louis Vuitton’s Asnières workshop, the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Trunk Case has been carefully designed to protect and transport the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy’s 6.175 kilograms of 18-carat gold and malachite.
This trunk created for the Russian edition is covered in beautiful, lightweight yet hardwearing, laser-engraved Monogram Titanium, a material recently used in Louis Vuitton’s Fall-Winter 2018/2019 menswear collection. The trunk’s eight corners are protected with the House’s celebrated natural cowhide leather, and the lock and six clasps are made in ruthenium, a strong dark-grey metal, which has the chemical symbol Ru and was named after this year’s FIFA World Cup™ host.
