Game, set, match!
Multi-faceted, independent and influential, Osaka is the embodiment of the Louis Vuitton woman, and she's set to step into her new role and make her debut for Louis Vuitton's Spring-Summer 2021 fashion campaign photographed by Louis Vuitton's Artistic Director of Women's Collections, Nicolas Ghesquière.
"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," says Naomi Osaka.
The announcement comes after a successful year for Osaka following her win at the 2020 US Open and earning herself the title of being the highest-paid female athlete in history.
"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," says Nicolas Ghesquière.
