THE FIRST RUGBY WORLD CUP FOR LOUIS VUITTON

To celebrate Rugby World Cup 2015, Louis Vuitton has designed a special case to carry the iconic Webb Ellis Cup, Rugby’s greatest prize.

Louis Vuitton is proud to support Rugby World Cup 2015, starting on September 18th, in London’s Twickenham stadium. The special order case will appear on October 31st, the day of the final, which will mark Louis Vuitton’s debut in the world of Rugby.

This special order for Rugby World Cup perpetuates Louis Vuitton's long tradition of creating elegant and ingenious cases for travellers to transport their most precious belongings.

Handmade in Louis Vuitton's historic Asnières workshop near Paris, the case has been meticulously designed to accommodate the celebrated Trophy, which will be presented to the winning captain at the Final on October 31st. Covered in Louis Vuitton's iconic Monogram canvas, the travel case is fitted with the company's signature brass lock and corners.

The workshop also crafted the trunk that holds the world's oldest sporting trophy, the famous silver ewer of the America's Cup, which dates back to 1851. More recently, Louis Vuitton specially designed the trophy case for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Trophy.
