The U.S open champion will be featured in the fashion house’s Spring 2021 campaign photographed by the French brand’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections, Nicolas Ghesquiere. Osaka is seen wearing a bright dress while holding a bag marked with the label’s distinctive monogram. On Instagram, Osaka wrote, “Funny story: I first bought my mom an LV bag when I was 15 as a birthday present. And it’s kinda been a tradition since. Do I call this a full circle moment? Yes.”
Osaka has been ranked No. 1 by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and is the first Asian player to hold the top ranking in singles. She was also the highest-earning female athlete of all time by annual income in 2020 and ranked 8th among all athletes in endorsement income.
Last February, she collaborated with Japanese designer Hanako Maeda and her label, Adeam, on a capsule collection for the fall 2020 season. And in December, she debuted a line of handbags with Strathberry. Still, Osaka admits that Louis Vuitton is her biggest collab yet.
