Naomi Osaka has been announced as Louis Vuitton’s latest House Ambassador.
The famed tennis player was photographed by Nicolas Ghesquière for the luxury label’s Spring 2021 campaign – LVSS21.
In a press release announcing the news, Naomi Osaka reveals that fashion is one of her “most treasured” passions.
“Aside from tennis, my most treasured passion is fashion and there is no brand more iconic than Louis Vuitton,” she says.
The 23-year-old champion also praised Nicolas Ghesquière – Louis Vuitton artistic director of women’s clothing – saying it was an “honour” to work with him.
“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,” Naomi expressed.
On Instagram, the tennis player also shared that the moment felt “full circle”, as she’s been buying her mom a LV handbag for her birthday since she was 16 years old.
