What You Need to Know About LoL’s Prestige Edition Skins
Louis Vuitton and Riot Games formed a partnership to design a unique Trophy Travel Case that will contain the Summoner’s Cup, one of the most prominent prizes in online sports given to LoL World Championship winners. LV has also released 2 champion skins for the LoL World Championship Finals, which will be held in Paris this 2019.
The champion skins, which were designed by Nicolas Ghesquière, can be unlocked starting November 10 and will be available for champions Senna and Qiyana. Nicolas has also designed a capsule collection and other LoL digital assets for the World Championship.
To unlock the skin, you have to purchase the 2019 Worlds Pass that costs 1,650 RP. You need to grind out the game to get tokens to purchase the skin from the in-game shop. At the moment, you have to spend 2000 tokens to buy the Prestige skin Valiant Sword Riven. It is safe to say that the skin for Qiyana will be offered at the same cost. Players can also expect a clothing collection that’s inspired by the champion skins for Senna and Qiyana. Expect the price to be quite high as well.
Aside from Louis Vuitton, Nike has also designed team kits for the LoL Pro League in China. Nike will be the apparel provider of the league’s sixteen clubs. The new uniforms have a chevron pattern to represent teamwork and motion. It also symbolizes the Summoner's Rift, which is known as the most competitive combat zone in the world of LoL. The teams will have an almost identical kit in 2020. Aside from the chevron pattern, the uniforms also have a single-button collar.
For Invictus Gaming, currently the world champions, the white jerseys of the team have a chevron that looking like wings of an angel and one gold star above the team’s logo. The star represents the victory of the team in last year’s championships. The angel wings look like the in-game skins of the team. RNG’s jerseys feature golden dragon scales, while the chevron for Fun Plus Phoenix has a red feather pattern. The three LPL teams wore their new jersey for the first time on October 2, 2019. The rest of the LoL Pro League will wear their new jersey starting 2020.
Aside from the jersey, Nike also released a League of Legend-inspired clothing collection. LPL players visited the company’s headquarters to do several performance tests to improve the apparel’s design.
