French Excellence!

Just another achievement in [Wemby’s] already impressive career…

Victor Wembanyama, otherwise known as Wemby, is the newest face of Louis Vuitton.

In the last few years, being in the NBA has nearly become synonymous with being fashionable. This merging of the sports world and the fashion industry began when players like Kyle Kuzma, Dwyane Wade, Russell Westbrook, and LeBron James made bold statements with their pre-game outfits.

When the trend gained popularity with other players, it caught the attention of luxury brands. In recent years, numerous players have been featured in high-fashion brand campaigns ranging from Gucci to Prada to Balenciaga.

For Louis Vuitton, a French brand, it only makes sense they would want to work with France-born Wembanyama. Not only is he a perfect fit because of his French heritage, but he’s also a mega star in NBA news right now. His impressive first season has gained him worldwide recognition, and any brand would want to collaborate with him because of that.

At just 20 years old, he holds his own in terms of fashion and undoubtedly on the court. In his first season, he broke multiple records in NBA games, including being the youngest player to achieve a 20-20 game in NBA history.

Wemby joins a growing list of athletes who have been chosen as ambassadors for Louis Vuitton, including renowned tennis player Carlos Alcaraz and swimmer Leon Marchand.

Even before working directly with the brand, he’s been spotted sporting LV on several occasions. Most notably, wearing a green Louis Vuitton suit to the 2023 Draft.

Then, again in November, rocking a checkered Louis Vuitton jacket!

In a press release, Louis Vuitton stated of the collaboration, “Striving for excellence and with a perpetual honing of craft, Victor joins Louis Vuitton on a journey of shared values and aligned ambitions. Like Louis Vuitton himself, the young athlete has blazed a trail, excelling in a career that is only just beginning.”

As for Wembanyama himself, this partnership with Louis Vuitton is just another achievement in his already impressive career. It’s clear that we can expect big things from him in both sports and fashion in the future.

Hopefully, they can hook him up with some Louis Vuitton bags for all the MVP trophies and championship rings coming his way in the future!
