The Louis Vuitton and League of Legends collection has finally dropped, and as expected, nothing comes cheap.
The apparel seems to be loosely based off of the True Damage Qiyana Prestige Edition skin, with the champion herself appearing on t-shirts and dresses. Pulling from Louis Vuitton branding, all of the items for sale have the iconic flower and star pattern. They also all have a tiger stripe pattern overlaying it on several items. While we’re not entirely sure what the colored stripes have to do with League of Legends, it’s a pretty dope look.

The prices are steep, but that’s not surprising given the usual pricing of Louis Vuitton items. The LVxLoL joggers are $1,610. The zip-up hoodie is $2,420. The dress that looks similar to Qiyana’s is $2,280. The most expensive item in the collection, a leather biker jacket, costs $5,650. With an average League of Legends skin costing $10-15, one Louis Vuitton shirt would be equivalent to … (does the math) a lot of skins.
The collection is obviously aimed at a very small subsection of the League of Legends fan base that is into luxury brands, but man, does it have me wishing I had more money.
Louis Vuitton also made a carrying case for the 2019 League of Legends World Championships trophy. A Prestige Edition for the True Damage Senna skin, which will also have a Louis Vuitton design, will release sometime in 2020.
