One thing that we love the most about Naomi Osaka, apart from seeing her triumph on the tennis court, is her amazing sense of style. Louis Vuitton bosses obviously feel the same way, since they recently named the famous athlete as the new face of their brand.
Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière praised her as “an exceptional young woman who represents her generation and is a role model for everyone” and expressed excitement for joining forces with her, starting with the upcoming Spring-Summer 2021 collection.
“Her career and convictions are inspiring and I am in awe of Naomi. She stays true to herself and doesn’t compromise on her values. I am looking forward to sharing new projects with Naomi in the year to come!”, Ghesquière said in a statement.
Osaka echoed his statement and said it’s an honor to work with Ghesquière because he shares her love of Japanese culture and style. Being Louis Vuitton’s new brand ambassador is also quite personal for the tennis champion because she bought her very first Louis Vuitton bag as a present for her mom when she was 16 and she’s been doing it ever since.
