Designer retailer Louis Vuitton and FIFA have teamed up for three exclusive projects to celebrate the 2018 FIFA World Cup currently underway in Russia.
Louis Vuitton was commissioned once again to make a special case that will hold the Official FIFA World Cup Trophy, an official adidas match ball trunk collection and an official product collection featuring signature bags, purses and clutches.
Louis Vuitton, adidas and FIFA created a truly unique match ball trunk collection. 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.
In addition to the trunk — is the Louis Vuitton 2018 FIFA World Cup™ Official Licensed Product Collection. The collection offers a refined yet playful football-inspired style, including exclusive versions of Keepall and Apollo bags along with a selection of smaller leather pieces. A logo unique to Russia 2018 has also been created for the design with the initials ‘L.V’ used like a team’s crest.
Since 2010, Louis Vuitton has been commissioned by FIFA to provide a bespoke case to ensure the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy travelled in safety and style. This tradition will continue for Russia 2018. Handmade in Asnieres, France, the case was revealed on the pitch in Moscow at the Opening Match on June 14, and will be revealed again at the Final on July 15.
