Louis Vuitton Launches Unique French Open Trophy Trunks – BLOUIN ARTINFO

Louis Vuitton recently launched Unique French Open Trophy Trunks. The trunks were created by Roland-Garros who Louis Vuitton has collaborated with. The trunks are so designed as to store Suzzane Lenglen Cup and the Musketeers’ Cup. The awards are meant for the men’s and women’s champions at the French Open. The trunk has been handcrafted at Louis Vuitton’s historic workshop in Asnières. LV’s signature style is prominent throughout the exterior of the special trunk. LV’s signature monogram is also present on the trunk. The lock features and brass corners are so LV-ish and speak volumes about the brand.

Garros’s touch finds its place in the terracotta-colored interior. It won’t be an exaggeration if we draw parallels of it with the clay surface of the tennis court. There is a “V” in white across the LV monogram that resembles the lines at a tennis court.

LV trunks are always special in their look and feel. It goes without saying that they are luxurious. In 2014, too, the maison had created a trunk to house World Cup 2014 trophy. The trophies have been manufactured by the Maison Mallerior, based out of Paris.

“After taking the most prestigious trophies in the world of football, rugby and sailing to the four corners of the globe, we are extremely proud to be playing a part in 2017’s Roland-Garros tournament. It is an honor to design these bespoke cases that will transport and protect two famous international tennis trophies,” Michael Burke, chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton was quoted as saying.
