As the FIFA World Cup nears, Louis Vuitton has launched a special capsule created specifically for the much awaited football tournament. LV have been designing the trophy’s travel trunk since 2010 but this year, they have crafted not just one, but five collectible pieces in black Taurillon leather.
Similarly to 2018, LV created a specific leather goods line for that year’s tournament. Besides the FIFA World Cup, we see that the biggest sporting events in the world, including Formula 1, the NBA have partnered with Louis Vuitton over the years.
The distinctive Damier motif of the Maison is waved across the outside surfaces of the bags, evoking the movement of the net during a goal – a very creative touch. Icons like the Keepall 50, City Keepall, and Discovery Backpack are part of the collection and make a comeback as useful travel companions with roomy main compartments, interior pockets for necessities, and adjustable straps decorated with black metallic hardware.
In addition to the collection, Keepall 50 bags have “Louis Vuitton” embossed leather tags that resemble soccer league badges and five bottom studs shaped like football cleats. Small leather products, such as a Dopp kit with contrasting piping and an adjustable leather handle, round off the line.
There are already a few Louis Vuitton stores that carry the Fifa World Cup 2022 collection, as well as online.
