    To celebrate Rugby World Cup 2015, Louis Vuitton has designed a special case to carry the iconic Webb Ellis Cup, Rugby’s greatest prize.

    Louis Vuitton is proud to support Rugby World Cup 2015, starting on September 18th, in London’s Twickenham stadium. The special order case will appear on October 31st, the day of the final, which will mark Louis Vuitton’s debut in the world of Rugby.

    The special order for Rugby World Cup perpetuates Louis Vuitton's long tradition of creating elegant and ingenious cases for travellers to transport their most precious belongings.

    Handmade in Louis Vuitton's historic Asnières workshop near Paris, the case has been meticulously designed to accommodate the celebrated Trophy, which will be presented to the winning captain at the Final on October 31st. Covered in Louis Vuitton's iconic Monogram canvas, the travel case is fitted with the company's signature brass lock and corners.

    The workshop also crafted the trunk that holds the world's oldest sporting trophy, the famous silver ewer of the America's Cup, which dates back to 1851. More recently, Louis Vuitton specially designed the trophy case for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Trophy.

    The Asnières atelier is the true hub of the House. Curator Judith Clark sought to highlight this vision in the exhibition at the Galerie.

    Barely five years after founding his House, Louis Vuitton began to outgrow his Parisian headquarters. In 1859, he relocated the new workshops to Asnières, a village a few kilometres northwest of Paris.

    These new ateliers were built in the ethereal Eiffel style, combining glass and steel. The exceptional savoir-faire of the Asnières artisans is such that, even today, key pieces are created here: rigid trunks, designs in rare or exotic leathers, special orders.

    Revealing the intimate aspects of Louis Vuitton’s history, highlighting its ties with the ateliers, underlining the presence of the Louis Vuitton universe… These were some of the challenges that curator Judith Clark sought to tackle in the new creative, playful and timeless space she so vividly imagined.
