When you travel you need travel cases. When you transport expensive things you need an expensive travel case.
Luxury French fashion house Louis Vuitton has put its mark on the World Cup ... specifically on the World Cup trophy's carrying case.
Commissioned by FIFA, the special order case, handmade by a single master craftsman in Louis Vuitton’s historic Asnières workshop near Paris, has been meticulously designed to accommodate the celebrated Trophy, which measures 36 cm in height, weighs 6.175 kg and is made of solid 18-carat gold with a base of semi-precious malachite. Covered in Louis Vuitton’s iconic Monogram canvas, the travel case is fitted with the company’s signature brass lock and corners, and has a dark brown lining that complements the Trophy’s rich gold.
The case opens at the front and at the top to allow the Trophy to be removed easily when, at the final on 11th July in Johannesburg, watched by many millions of people across the globe, which will be presented to the most powerful football team in the world.
Wish our players a very BIG GOOD LUCK!
