Game, set, match! Worldwide tennis star Carlos Alcaraz has once again partnered with Louis Vuitton to create a special trunk that celebrates the heritage of the sport and the craftsmanship of the Maison.
Louis Vuitton has been always on the game when it comes to reinvent its legacy of craftsmanship, and this is not an exception. This is once again evident in its newly collaboration with tennis player and house ambassador Carlos Alcaraz, teaming up to create a custom-made trunk designed especially to house more than the sporting equipment but also emotions, commemorating the ambassador’s journey and memories in the sport.
A marvel of craftsmanship and a beacon of luxury, the exclusive trunk of Carlos Alcaraz epitomises Louis Vuitton’s mastery of luggage creation. Handcrafted from the Maison’s unique hardwood, its exterior shines with the iconic Monogram canvas, a timeless symbol of their refined codes. On this exquisite canvas of timeless elegance, a hand-painted logo stands as a testament to the tennis player’s extraordinary achievements and unwavering spirit.
Like sacred awards within a hallowed shrine, a quilted realm of luxury awaits on the inside. Each drawer, adorned with a gleaming natural leather handle and secured by crossed cotton straps, echoing the timeless design of the revered Secretary Linen trunk. Each compartment houses a precious souvenir from Carlos Alcaraz’s sensational tennis odyssey: the Nike shirt he wore with unwavering pride as he ascended the Wimbledon podium in 2023 lies immaculately folded, its vibrant hues still radiating with the triumphant glow of victory. In addition, his signature Babolat racket, the instrument that has witnessed countless triumphs, rests in its protective embrace, delivering nothing but the tales of the electrifying serves it has unleashed.
Along with the player’s treasured tennis memorabilia, the trunk also provides ample space for his personal Louis Vuitton collection, from a blue Speedy P9 bag gifted by the Directive Creator of Menswear, Pharrell Williams, to his beloved LV x Nike AF1 sneakers, and a curated selection of accessories including tennis balls, Horizon Light Up headphones, and an LV Nanogram portable speaker.
“Working on this trunk with the Louis Vuitton artisans has been a great experience and a privilege,” says Carlos Alcaraz. “It is designed to house some of my most special memories, especially those of my Grand Slams, as well as some of my favorite products from the Maison, like my Speedy bag and my custom LV x Nike AF1. I am really proud of what we have been able to create together,” he concludes.
Available now on Louis Vuitton stores and website, this unique piece is a testament to the Maison’s commitment to excellence. Embrace the pinnacle of luxury and athletic spirit with the Malle Vestiaire and transform your sporting journeys into enduring moments of grandeur.
