For the upcoming League of Legends World Championship Finals in Paris, Louis Vuitton partnered with Riot Games to create Prestige Skins for the popular multiplayer game—resulting in the unlikely coming together of high-end fashion and eSports. Louis Vuitton also created a one-of-a-kind Trophy Travel Case to hold the Summoner’s Cup, the prestigious prize that will be awarded to the champions.
For the highly anticipated eSports gaming event, the luxury brand created a capsule collection featuring designs by Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s collections, as well as other digital content.
The rising popularity of eSports is inspiring unconventional partnerships, especially within the fashion industry. Like Louis Vuitton having a presence in the League of Legends World Championship, a range of Nike Air Jordan outfits were recently created for Fortnite.
