Louis Vuitton has debuted the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Official Match Trophy Case, marking the luxury house’s third participation in the world’s biggest sporting event. The custom made case features laser-engraved monogram titanium (the same material used in Louis Vuitton’s FW18 menswear collection), natural cowhide leather corners, and lock and clasps made of ruthenium, a dark grey metal that has the chemical symbol Ru, in reference to the tournament’s 2018 host country.
In addition, Louis Vuitton teamed up with adidas to create the FIFA World Cup Official Match Ball Collection Trunk, which will be auctioned at a Naked Heart Foundation gala charity. The limited-edition trunk boasts iconic Monogram canvas and will come with 14 footballs — 13 of which are specially-made re-editions of official adidas World Cup match balls. Also included in the set is a Louis Vuitton natural cowhide leather football, which will also be available to purchase separately.
The Louis Vuitton 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Official Match Trophy Case will be presented at the opening and final match on June 14 and July 15. For something you can actually purchase, check out Louis Vuitton’s FIFA 2018 World Cup leather accessories collection.
