Rugby World Cup Trophy Trunk

Rugby World Cup Trophy Trunk

The coveted Webb Ellis Cup will be presented to the 2023 Rugby World Cup winners in a bespoke Louis Vuitton Travel Case.

Marking a new chapter in Louis Vuitton’s long-standing relationship with the Rugby World Cup and after a first trophy case in 2015, the new trunk was unveiled at an exhibition match in Paris on November 20th, 2021. The upcoming World Cup will take place across France in September and October 2023, during which this brand-new, bespoke case will hold and showcase the tournament’s Webb Ellis Cup.

Highlighting a 160-year tradition of creating remarkable trunks, Louis Vuitton worked closely with the Rugby World Cup Organising Committee on the new Web Ellis Cup Travel Case. Experienced Louis Vuitton artisans hand-crafted the trunk at the Maison’s historic workshops in Asnières outside Paris, bringing signature savoir-faire to an entirely custom creation.

The Official Trophy Travel Case exterior is covered in the legendary Monogram canvas, with a blue, white and red V reflecting the tournament’s colors and the Roman numerals XV representing the number of players in a rugby union team. The exterior is finished with lozine trimming and the same brass corner protectors, lock and clasps that have been used on Louis Vuitton trunks since the 1860s. The case is lined with rich Louis Vuitton leather in the same Pantone blue as the painted V detail, a first in the history of the Maison’s trophy trunks.
