Louis Vuitton, the 165-year-old French style house that makes monstrous purses that cost more than my vehicle, has gotten together with Riot Games to make a “remarkable, exceptional” travel case for the Summoner’s Cup, the trophy granted to the victor of the League of Legends World Championship. Uproar said in the declaration that the storage compartment “will include both conventional Louis Vuitton savoir-faire alongside bleeding edge, cutting edge components propelled by the League of Legends universe.”
Luxury style and esports may appear to be a weirdo matching, yet this quite certain part of it—a movement case for the Summoner’s Cup, both truly and figuratively probably the greatest trophy in esports—is really something the brand is known for, having recently made one of a kind travel cases for the FIFA World Cup, the America’s Cup, and the Rugby World Cup.
“We are respected to have Louis Vuitton as an official join forces with plans to affect the look, feel, and notoriety of our most conspicuous League of Legends occasion,” Riot’s head of worldwide esports organizations Naz Aletaha said. “This is a memorable organization that addresses the effect Riot Games and League of Legends has had on the business in the course of the last nine esports seasons.”
The connection between Riot Games and Louis Vuitton will reach out past simply the trophy case: Riot said that “advanced resources” including one of a kind victor skins and a container accumulation structured by Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s accumulations will be reported soon.
“The League of Legends World Championship isn’t just the peak of the competition: it’s the place the universe of games and stimulation meet up in festivity of new legends to be conceived,” Louis Vuitton director and CEO Michael Burke said. “Louis Vuitton has for quite some time been related with the world’s most pined for trophies, and here we are today, close by the Summoner’s Cup. We are excited to be a piece of such a famous occasion.”
The play-in phase of the League of Legends World Championships starts on October 2, while the finals will occur on November 10.
