Louis Vuitton FIFA 2010 World Cup Trophy Case
With the World Cup starting on June 11th, FIFA commishined Louis Vuitton to create the official travel case for the coveted trophy of the 2010 tournament.
Handmade by a single master craftsman in Louis Vuitton’s historic Asnières workshop near Paris, which opened in 1859, the case 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.
