It’s time for the second grand slam of the year and we cannot wait to witness our beloved hotshots, (read Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Angelique Kerber) sweating it out for the legendary Roland-Garros’ trophies. Amidst the high-power struggles and some on and off court drama, one news that has managed to catch our eye is the unveiling of the novel LV trunks that will house the Grand 2017 French Open Trophies.
The French label has specially created two trophy trunks for the Suzanne-Lenglen Cup and the Musketeers’ Cup, each of which is awarded to the French Open Women’s and Men’s champions every year. Manufactured by Maison Mellerio, the oldest and probably the most revered Goldsmith in the world, the two trophies are a result of long hours of work and excellent craftsmanship. It’s no wonder then, that the prestigious cups have found a home as luxurious as the LV trunks.
Meticulously produced at the brand’s historic workshops in Asnières, the LV trunks boast of terracotta-colored interiors as well as the signature brass corners and lock. Adorned in the iconic Monogram canvas, one can also catch the quintessential ‘V’ mark on the front of them for an added dose of charm. It will certainly be exciting to know who bags these luxe LV trunks (and the French open trophies) this year.
