Louis Vuitton Unveils Special Trunks Created for Paris Olympics 2024

Louis Vuitton has unveiled special trunks – Medals Trunks and Torches Trunks – for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 as part of LVMH’s Premium Partnership with Paris 2024.

Louis Vuitton designed two Medal Trunks will carry the medals of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, and two Torches Trunks for the Official Olympic and Paralympic torches. The trunks are associated with the key Paris 2024 moments of celebrations, like the Olympic and Paralympic Torches Relays. The trunks will be presented at the Champions Park.

The Medals Trunks and Torches Trunks feature finely honed skills, ever-exacting standards, and continued dedication to the excellence of Louis Vuitton and its strong team of artisans. Pietro Beccari, Chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton, said they are extremely proud to be part of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 with the mission of packing and presenting the defining symbols of Paris 2024: the victors’ medals and the torches of the Olympic flame.

“For over 170 years, Louis Vuitton has been creating trunks that embody excellence, creativity, and audacity, values we share with the world’s greatest sporting events. Louis Vuitton and the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 share common values such as the quest for excellence, creativity, and the beauty technique. Once again, victory travels in Louis Vuitton.

The Louis Vuitton Torches Trunk will elegantly protect and display the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Torches which will travel across France in the lead up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024. The two torches, arriving from Olympia to Marseille on May 8th for the Olympic Torch, and from Stoke Mandeville in the UK in August for the Paralympic Torch, are designed by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur.

The trunks feature circular sockets in the base and the lid into which the torch is fitted and held surely in place to protect the torches before and after their journeys. The trunks’ interior is lined with soft black matt leader. Each trunk can be easily transformed into a graceful presentation case by simply unfolding the doors and reversing the socket in the hinged lid to reveal an embossed Paris 2024 logo.

The trunks’ exterior is covered in Louis Vuitton’s Damier canvas, which was created in 1888. It also features the traditional brass protective corners and closures.
