The Summoner’s Cup is the trophy presented to the world champions of League of Legends, and is said to be the most distinguished accolade in the world of e-sports. Louis Vuitton will create a bespoke trunk for the trophy, marrying the House’s savoir-faire and the League of Legend’s high technology-driven world.

“The League of Legends World Championship is not only the climax of the tournament,” began Michael Burke, Chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton. “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 where we are today, alongside the Summoner’s Cup. We are thrilled to be part of such an iconic event.
