As part of its partnership with Riot Games, Louis Vuitton is unveiling Prestige Skins for League of Legends, unlockable from November 10, as part of the League of Legends World Championship Finals.
In September, Louis Vuitton announced a world-first partnership bringing fashion and eSports together. In collaboration with Riot Games, the company behind gaming sensation, League of Legends, the luxury brand is designing a one-of-a-kind Trophy Travel Case that will hold the Summoner’s Cup.
As LV explains in its announcement “The bespoke trunk, the first of its kind for an esports championship, will feature both traditional Louis Vuitton savoir-faire along with cutting-edge, high-tech elements inspired by the League of Legends universe.”
In case you’re wondering what the Summoner’s Cup is, it’s currently one of the most prestigious prizes in eSports, given to the winners of the League of Legends World Championship.
But that’s not all. Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s collections, Nicolas Ghesquière, has designed unique Prestige Skins for the game, and a capsule collection. The skins are available for champions Qiyana and Senna, and will be unlockable from November 10, right in time for the 2019 League of Legends World Championship Finals in Paris.
It’s also worth mentioning that Nicolas Ghesquière is also designing other League of Legend digital assets for the Championship as part of the partnership.
In other news, Nike is also designing team kits for the League of Legends pro league – another world-first.
