At 23, tennis player Naomi Osaka, world number 3 in the standings, is stepping up in the fashion world by becoming the new face of the French brand Louis Vuitton. At the end of 2020, the Japanese had already worked hard with Nike to release her own collection, like other prominent figures in world tennis such as Roger Federer or Serena Williams.
For this new collaboration, Naomi Osaka is associated with Nicolas Ghesquière, the artistic director of the Women’s collections of the Louis Vuitton brand. The young woman declared that besides tennis, her other passion was fashion, and that there is nothing more iconic than Louis Vuitton. She integrates a long line of athlete muse of the French luxury brand, having already collaborated with the swimmer Michael Phelps, the boxer Mohamed Ali, but also the three football legends, Zinédine Zidane, Pelé and Diego Maradona.
