Louis Vuitton presented Kim with a custom-made luggage bag at the LV global store located in ChungDam, Seoul on Monday. The project for this tailor-made bag was proposed by LV in tribute of Kim who is involved in various philanthropic efforts including representing UNICEF as a international goodwill ambassador.

The production for the tailor-made skate luggage bag started in January. After consulting the size and functions of the bag with Kim, the order was sent to the custom-order specialist in France. It took approximately 9 months to finish the bag. Louis Vuitton will make an exact duplicate of Kim’s bag early next year that will be auctioned off. The proceedings of the auction of the bag, which will contain a pair of skates autographed by Kim, will go to UNICEF. “Louis Vuitton has a 156 year history of great craftsmanship and we are delighted to present this custom-made bag to Kim Yuna,” said Louis Vuitton Korea’s president, Cho Hyun-Wook.

The exterior of the bag used Louis Vuitton’s signature Epi leather that was personally chosen by Kim. The ivory color is reminiscent of the grace that Kim exhibits in her skating. The bag is 45 cm in height and the interior is blue azure which is both feminine and sophisticated. It was topped off using LV’s trademark locks and corners.

The bag is designed with compartments not only for figure skates but also skate guards, ankle pads, gloves and other skating equipment.  

“I would like to thank Louis Vuitton for the love and attention they have shown for figure skating. I am honored to be the recipient of such a wonderful gift which took so much time and effort to make. I would also like to express my gratitude to Louis Vuitton for planning a charity auction that will support UNICEF,” said Kim.
