"I'm excited! I know it sounds cliché, but a timepiece is really timeless, and it's important to consider style, quality, and history,"

Louis Vuitton tapped Osaka as a brand ambassador, historically marking the first time the luxury brand has looked to a professional athlete as an ambassador. Osaka shared the news on Twitter writing:
“Funny story: I first bought my mom an LV bag when I was 16 as a birthday present and it’s kinda been a tradition since. Do I call this a full circle moment? Yes.”
Osaka will be seen in the brand’s spring 2021 fashion campaign photographed by Louis Vuitton, artistic director of women’s collections, Nicolas Ghesquière. Yet another incredible partnership for the young sports star.
As if having collaborated with the likes of Louis Vuitton isn't enough, Osaka fulfilled another of her dreams when she featured in the January 2021 edition of Vogue magazine, landing the cover of the prestigious glossy.
