The three-time Grand Slam victor will appear in LV's Spring-Summer 2021 campaign designed by LV's director of women's collection, Nicolas Ghesquière.
The Grand Slam champion is the newest fresh face global ambassador of Louis Vuitton.
"#NaomiOsaka for #LouisVuitton", Louis Vuitton posted on their Instagram.
She is equally excited about working with him.
The Vuitton brand described Osaka as "multi-faceted, independent and modern" and "one of the most influential tennis players of all-time". The success enjoyed by her, both on and off the court, has been astonishing.
"Wow this is actually insane", the Japanese star wrote on both her Twitter and Instagram accounts.
LV's Director of Women's Collections Nicolas Ghesquière commended the young tennis star for being "an exceptional woman" and "a role model" for all. Osaka had a hilarious reply and wrote, "If she wants me to move in she should just say that". Her career and convictions are inspiring and I am in awe of Naomi.
"Funny story: I first bought my mom a LV bag when I was 15 as a birthday present", she said. Do I call this a full circle moment? "She stays true to herself and doesn't compromise on her values".
Having a flair for fashion, Osaka also partnered with Japanese label ADEAM and released her own capsule collection previous year.
