French fashion house Louis Vuitton has designed a travelling case for the FIFA World Cup 2014 trophy. The luxury brand has created a one-of-a-kind, custom-made trunk for the trophy to be transported in before it is awarded to the winning soccer team at the World Cup final to be held at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on July 13.
The French leather goods company says that the case is wrapped in Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram canvas and features the brand’s signature brass lock and corners. It also opens from the front and at the top to allow the trophy to be easily removed when, at the final game on July 13, it will be presented to the captain of the winning team.
The current World Cup project marks the brands second consecutive collaboration with the international governing body of soccer, FIFA. Earlier the brand also created the travelling case for the World Cup 2010 trophy, which was awarded to Spain in South Africa.
