Riot Games has announced that they will partner Louis Vuitton for League of Legends World Championship 2019.
Louis Vuitton will create a-one-of a kind trophy case for the World Championship Summoner’s Cup. The trophy will be awarded to 2019 champions in Paris.
This will be the first time anything esports-related partners with a luxury fashion brand like Louis Vuitton.
Additionally, Nicolas Ghesquiere, the Artistic Director of Women’s collections for Louis Vuitton, will be designing unique champion skins and a capsule collection that will be announced as Worlds 2019 approaches.
The pages on both Riot and Louis Vuitton’s websites have been removed, which could indicate that the announcement wasn’t meant to be public this early.
The play-in stage of League of Legends Worlds will begin on October 2nd until November 10th with the finals.
“The League of Legends World Championship is not only the climax of the tournament: it’s where the world of sports and entertainment come together in celebration of new legends to be born. Louis Vuitton has long been associated with the world’s most coveted trophies, and here we are today, alongside the Summoner’s Cup. We are thrilled to be part of such an iconic event.” – Michael Burke, Chairman, and CEO of Louis Vuitton
