Louis Vuitton and Annie Liebowitz have been collaborating on their Journeys campaign for a few years now. For the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, they released a video of retired soccer Legends Diego Maradona (Argentina), Zinedine Zidane (France), and the legen-dary Pele (Brazil – the only player holding three World Cup winning medals), dukin’ it out … in foosball.

No, we didn’t say “football”. FOOS-BALL. Check it out.

World Cup Wednesdays | Louis Vuitton World Cup Case

Louis Vuitton was commissioned to ensure that the World Cup Trophy travels in Style.

LV‘s handmade¬† leather case was unveiled on Tuesday, along with a replica World Cup trophy, which is given to the winners. The original Cup is the permanent property of FIFA, world soccer’s governing body. Check out the making of the trophy case in our gallery, below.

British supermodel Naomi Campbell installed the trophy in the luxury case, handling it with gloves, as tradition requires only winners of the Cup may touch it. Good thing she didn’t throw it!
