In Spring/Summer 2021, tennis star Naomi Osaka will debut her fashion campaign with Louis Vuitton as their newest House Ambassador.
Per a statement, Osaka shared her thoughts about working with the luxury brand.
“Aside from tennis, my most treasured passion is fashion; and there is no brand more iconic than Louis Vuitton,” Naomi said in a statement. “It is such an honor to work with Nicolas —he’s a designer I admire so much, and we share a mutual love of Japanese culture and style. To become global brand ambassador is truly a dream come true for me.”
Through her IG page, reigning 2-time U.S. Open Champion recalled an LV-related childhood story as she announced the news.
“Wow, this is actually crazy. Honored to be @louisvuitton newest House Ambassador.”
“Funny story: I first bought my mom a LV bag when I was 15 as a birthday present,” she said. “And it’s kinda been a tradition since. Do I call this a full circle moment? Yes.”
LV’s Director of Women’s Collections Nicolas Ghesquière commended the young tennis star for being “an exceptional woman” and “a role model” for all.
“I am in awe of Naomi,” he said. “She stays true to herself and doesn’t compromise on her values.”
