  • wonderful tasteless junk

    Dr Design says:
  • Yes. It is tasteless junk. I am certain that it was Louis Vuitton that came around to the World Cup folks.
    They just beat out the Swarovski Crystal folks who, always looking for a new place to stick their product,
    were focusing on a new toilet paper line. Damn.

    Ron Smith says:
  • Having a dedicated case for the cup is a great idea! However, the box design feels a like a stock fit, rather than something that is a bespoke, dedicated vessel and glorifier of such a prestigious trophy. Also, using the ‘goto’ LV brand design undermines it which is a shame when LV have done some amazing limited edition and bespoke designs in the past.
