Footy Love: FIFA Likes Louis Vuitton, Too

Spain National Team 2010This summer’s most prized possession just got a major home renovation. Later this week, the Official FIFA World Cup Trophy will be making its way from Paris to South Africa in a specially-made Louis Vuitton case.

Can you say “big pimpin”? How about “holla!” Or, “Stop it now, you’re annoying.”

LV is preferred by WAGs and players alike, we think the worldwide football community can take partial credit for keeping the luxury brand’s business thriving even during a recession.  Of course, we this ‘fashion meets football case’ partnership is a natural, publicity-driven one, and reason enough for us to showcase Sergio Ramos and his LV luggage departing the SNT’s plane last week.

Perhaps our recommended “fined by FIFA” treatment for those without monogrammed goods will come to fruition after all?

    I think the FIFA WC trophy looks ghastly. They have to wrap it in something much more visually acceptable like an LV case …or Yoann Gourcuff LOL

    (And what's Naomi Campbell doing next to it? She's a poster child for violent conduct!)
