Until then, teams had organized – and paid for – the America’s Cup selection series themselves. “The concept arose from the fact that we challengers were tired of footing the bill for the organization of the qualifying regatta,” Trouble said. “It occurred to me that instead of spending money on the selection process, we should find a partner. That’s how it all started.” Trouble turned to the French-based, internationally acclaimed luxury goods company Louis Vuitton , founded in 1854, just three years after the start of the America’s Cup in 1851.
Emirates Team New Zealand, who beat the Italian team in the previous Louis Vuitton Cup in 2007, won the series 7-1. Weve definitely come here to win the Americas Cup, so winning the Louis Vuitton Cup is all part of the preparation, said Emirates Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker. The guys are extremely focused. We came short in Valencia in 2007 and well give it our all now in the next few weeks to make sure were as ready as can be.

(Photo: Louis Vuitton) Related This 2013 autumn/winter season will mark the first time that Louis Vuitton manufactures a product designed by an artist from the Middle East. As part of it’s autumn/winter Foulard D’artistes (‘Artists’ Scarves’) project, fashion powerhouse Louis Vuitton will adopt designs by three international street artists: Eko Nughoro from Indonesia, EINE from the UK and El-Seed from Tunisia, on it’s emblematic giant silk square. El-Seed is a Tunisian-born visual artist who paints large-scale murals of decorative Arabic script, in a style he describes as “caligrafitti”. He has painted bright murals in cities across the globe, from New York to Mecca to his Tunisian hometown Gabes. El-Seed first explored the art of graffiti in 1998 in Paris, where he spent his childhood. Later, when he moved to North America, he started combining graffiti with his passion for Arabic calligraphy (usually associated with the Quran and religious scripture). The artist likes to mix traditional script and contemporary pop-culture, giving birth to a distinctive urban graffiti. On his rendetition of the Louis Vuitton scarf, El-Seed illustrated four verses from a poem dubbed “Venice Carnival” by late Palestinian writer Taha Muhammad Ali. “I gave an homage to Venice, Italy through a few verses from poet Taha Muhammad Ali, a tribute to the beauty and elegance of this city and it’s openness to the Eastern world,” the artist announced on Facebook.

How the Louis Vuitton Cup changed the sport
Somebody will work the metal. Somebody will polish it. Somebody will shine it. Each time it is our challenge to get the best stone setter, the best polisher, make a team and make them work on a piece together. We are very lucky in Paris for historic reasons we have the best craftsmen in the world whose skills have been passed from one generation to another. From Louis XIV they were already making jewelry so the craftsman has passed the skills from generation to generation. How many pieces do you make per design? Some of them are unique. Some of them there will be more. It really depends.
