The timing couldn’t get any better. With people turning towards online gaming or home games during the lockdown days, poker has also become a go-to source of entertainment.
On Thursday, Louis Vuitton launched the poker set priced at $24,000. The case is inspired by Vuitton’s suitcase-style President case which has golden metal brass fittings, interior leather lining and a signature of LV embossed with diamonds, flowers printed on coated canvas. However, the set is as much as a fashion statement as it is a way of carrying chips.
From chess and backgammon travel cases to poker, the house is filled with games collection. For more than 100 years, the brand has expanded and evolved. And now LV may be capitalizing on the trend as the year 2020 has witnessed an influx in newbies entering the poker world.
