NBA Debuts Louis Vuitton Travel Case for Championship Trophy

sports /

Whichever team reigns supreme in the NBA Finals matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat will win not only the golden Larry O’Brien Trophy but a pretty sweet bespoke Louis Vuitton travel case.

“The French Maison is the first Official Trophy Case provider for the NBA, which marks a new chapter in a long history of crafting custom trunks for the world’s most coveted trophies,” a post on the NBA’s IG read.

Indeed, Louis V has designed a range of eye-catching trunks for some of the biggest sports tournaments in the world, including three for the Fifa World Cup, two for the French Open aka Roland-Garros, one the Rugby World Cup and more. All told, nine trunks have been created since 2010.

Most recently, 25 people from the brand spent over 900 hours putting together a case for the Summoner’s Cup presented at the League of Legends 2019 World Championships in Paris.

Marking LV’s first design for an esports league, the high-tech trunk features five LED light systems used to dramatize the unveiling of the cup during a special ceremony. For even more show, each of the five side panels open and close automatically while the trophy rises on a platform in the middle.
