Hopping further on the FIFA bandwagon, Adidas has produced the game-changer luxurious velvet football as a limited edition deluxe ball to commemorate the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia games.
Covered with delicate golden flowers that take their inspiration from traditional Russian embroidery, the ball is covered in a black, velvet-style fabric and decorated by hand with Swarovski crystals. Like all things Russian-inspired, Adidas created the “jewel” of all footballs.
Though Adidas is an international brand with its products available to consumers all over the globe, this black velvet, gold-embroidered, Swarovski crystal studded collector’s edition football is only available in Moscow, Russia, at a golden price tag of $16,000. So, if you are a die-hard soccer fanatic determined to get your hands on this ultra-luxe collector’s item, getting to the football mania hub in Moscow will be a must.
Luxury fashion house, Louis Vuitton has yet again charmed the fans with a limited edition collaboration with the FIFA World Cup to produce an Official Licensed Product Collection to commemorate the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.
This time, the collection draws inspiration from the official match ball of the 1970 FIFA World Cup, with a modern variation of the Keepall and Apollo bags, as well as a selection of small leather goods. Most styles are offered in three color ways, and a more exclusive “Made-to-order” Keepall is showcased in eight pentagon hues, associated with the colors of almost any national flag. Smaller items, including the Epi leather luggage tags, can be embossed with you favorite of the 35 World Cup participating flags.
The custom handbags start at roughly $4,300 and take eight to ten weeks to produce. But if that’s still not enough to fulfill your luxury World Cup enthusiasm, Louis Vuitton has produced a special-order Official Match Ball Collection Trunk, that is sure to become a collector’s item, containing re-editions of the 13 Adidas match balls used in the tournament since 1970, along with a newly designed LV ball.
For soccer fans in the Magic City, the Official Match Ball Collection Trunk, and the only North American FIFA World Cup activation for Louis Vuitton, will be on display at the Miami Design District Pop-Up store through July 15.
FIFA fan or not, these luxury World Cup items are a GOOOOOOOOAL!
