Louis Vuitton at the World Cup Final
Fifa trophy arrives in designer trunk
FIFA World Cup is now over and the result was that a well-deserving team, Germany, got the trophy.
And as the moment of the presentation of the trophy is always one of the most expected and special ones at a World Cup, the FIFA™ decided to choose a commissioned Louis Vuitton trunk for the trophy to arrive at the Maracaná Stadium. It was escorted by two world-class celebrities: Carles Puyol, the 2010 World Champion and Brazilian-born top model Gisele Bündchen, who wore a Louis Vuitton outfit from the 2015 Cruise Collection.
“It was a great honor to represent my country and the people of Brazil in this celebration carrying the LV FIFA Trophy Case. It’s beautiful to see how sport has the power to bring the world together. I am so grateful to be part of this moment. Thank you all Brazilians who have welcomed the world with all their joy and loving spirit.” declared Gisele Bündchen.
In keeping with tradition, the FIFA™ World Cup Trophy was returned to the pitch by a representative of the defending champions. Thus Spain, 2010 winners and represented by Carles Puyol, was able to share a final triumphal moment with the Trophy before the kick-off of the 2014 final match between Germany and Argentina.
By now, the FIFA™ World Cup Trophy and its official Louis Vuitton trunk has already Brazil for the home country of the new World Champions: the German team.
