Earlier this year, Louis Vuitton announced its unique collaboration with Riot Games, the US-based e-sports organisation behind online multiplayer game, League of Legends. Since 2009, League of Legends has grown to become the most-played PC game in the world and, as a global phenomenon, driven the explosive growth of e-sports around the world. 

The League of Legends 2019 World Championship, organised by Riot Games, began on October 2 in Berlin, with the finals having just concluded in Paris on 10 November.

For the event, Louis Vuitton revealed the unprecedented creation of its one-of-a-kind Trophy Travel Case to hold the Summoner’s Cup, the trophy awarded to the world champions, and is widely considered to be the most prestigious prize in e-sports across the globe. 

The bespoke trunk is the first of its kind designed for an e-sports championship, and is characterised by its distinctive, seamless blending of Louis Vuitton's signature stamp of elegance along with cutting-edge, high-tech elements inspired by the League of Legends aesthetic.

Moving forward, the Parisian powerhouse and Riot Games are expected to announce a range of exclusive digital assests for League of Legends, including a series of champion skins and an exclusive capsule collection, designed by Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women's collections, Nicolas Ghesquière.
