Naomi Osaka Joins Louis Vuitton As House Ambassador
Louis Vuitton Appoints Tennis Champion Naomi Osaka As Their New House Ambassador
Parisian Fashion House, Louis Vuitton, has appointed tennis champion and social activist Naomi Osaka as their new house ambassador.
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, Louis Vuitton’s Women’s Artistic Director
Osaka is the first Asian player to hold the No.1 ranking in singles and the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam. Her rapid rise to stardom has extended beyond the court, as she’s recently worked with ADEAM for New York fashion week and has frequently sported Pyer Moss by Kerby Jean-Raymond.
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 global brand ambassador is truly a dream come true for me,”
– Naomi Osaka
In 2020, Osaka was named Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year, Ad Weeks Most Powerful Woman in Sports, Forbes Highest-Paid Female Athlete of all Time, and one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. She developed a voice in activism both on and off the court; she’s shining a light on America’s social inequality.
Naomi will make her debut as the House’s latest ambassador in the Spring-Summer 2021 fashion campaign photographed by Louis Vuitton’s Women’s Artistic Director, Nicolas Ghesquière.
