A three-time Grand Slam singles winner and the reigning champion at the US Open Naomi Osaka becomes Louis Vuitton‘s brand ambassador.
Aside from tennis, my most treasured passion is fashion; and there is no brand more iconic than Louis Vuitton. It is such an honour 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. – Naomi Osaka
Naomi will make her debut as the House’s latest ambassador in the Spring-Summer 2021 fashion campaign photographed by Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections, Nicolas Ghesquière.
Naomi is an exceptional woman who represents her generation and is also a role model for everyone. Her career and convictions are inspiring. I am in awe of Naomi, she stays true to herself and doesn’t compromise on her values. – Nicolas Ghesquière
Osaka is one of the most marketable athletes in the world, building on her status as a Grand Slam singles champion, her multi-ethnic background, and her genuine personality. She was the highest-earning female athlete of all time by annual income in 2020, and ranked 8th among all athletes in endorsement income. She is a brand ambassador for Japanese automobile manufacturer Nissan and Japanese electronics manufacturer Citizen Watch. She also endorses several other Japanese companies, including noodle maker Nissin Foods, cosmetics producer Shiseido, the broadcasting station Wowow, and airline All Nippon Airways.
In 2019, the #1 tennis player in the world launched a new line of wireless, smart headphones designed by MUZIK.
