Naomi Osaka Is The Face Of Louis Vuitton
PARIS, FRANCE — International tennis star Naomi Osaka is the face of Spring/Summer 2021 ad campaign, which was shot by the house’s artistic director of women’s collections, Nicolas Ghesquière.
Osaka wears a playful, kaleidoscopic minidress that feels perfectly in keeping with the tennis pro’s love for bold color and print. It also marks the beginning of Osaka’s new and ongoing role as an ambassador for the house, with further collaborative projects in the pipeline.
“Aside from tennis, my most treasured passion is fashion, and there is no brand more iconic than Louis Vuitton,” says Osaka. “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.” In Ghesquière’s words: “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.”
