Paris-based luxury label Louis Vuitton today (January 11, 201) announced champion Naomi Osaka as a brand ambassador. Osaka will make her debut in the spring 2021 collection campaign photographed by Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquière.
Commenting on her new role, Osaka explained, “Aside from tennis, my most treasured passion is fashion, and there is no brand more iconic than Louis Vuitton. 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 a global brand ambassador is truly a dream come true for me.”
With the Osaka announcement, Louis Vuitton bids adieu to 2020 a year in which Emma Stone, Alicia Vikander and Léa Seydoux were the label’s ambassadors.
Reflecting her love of style, Osaka debuted a Nike collection featuring the debut of her own logo in November and then partnered with Scottish accessory label Strathberry on a capsule collection of bags.
