France has held the official FIFA World Cup trophy aloft following the final of the championships.
But before it is handed over to the winning captain, it was kept under lock-and-key in a customised and exclusive Louis Vuitton case.
The “travel case” was handmade at the company’s famous Asnières workshop in France, according to Highsnobiety. It is “lightweight but hardwearing,” has a “laser-engraved monogram titanium composition,” and is completed with Louis Vutton’s signature “LV” design.
The World Cup trophy, and its Louis Vuitton case, were inspected when it arrived at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Sunday.
It even had a security detail to guard the trophy before it was escorted to the pitch.
Gloves were needed to inspect the trophy when it arrived, but it is unlikely the soccer players will be that precautious when they get their hands on it later today.
