Louis Vuitton and the NBA have officially announced their new multi-year partnership. The announcement includes images of a hand-crafted travel case specially made for the Larry O’Brien trophy given to the NBA Finals winner in June.
The collaboration marks the French fashion house’s first partnership with an American sports organization. Louis Vuitton has designed trophy trunks in the past for other tournaments, included the League of Legends eSports WORLDS tournament and the French Open.
The trophy case comes adorned in the legendary all-over LV monogram print and an oversized white “V” that seals the case and opens to reveal a royal blue interior. The case resembles vintage trunks with gold hardware and standard design, sure to transport the Tiffany & Co.-designed trophy.
The NBA also confirmed that a limited edition apparel and accessories collection will be released yearly, with this year’s collection designed by Virgil Abloh. Expect more details to be announced during NBA All Star Weekend.
