Muhammad Ali is the new face of Louis Vuitton’s latest Core Values campaign, which will appear in the international press from June 15. The three-time world heavyweight boxing champion was photographed with his grandson in his Arizona home by Annie Leibovitz.
“Muhammad Ali is the epitome of an outstanding personality – a true living legend in boxing and far beyond,” explained Louis Vuitton ceo and chairman Yves Carcelle. “We are honoured that he agreed to be photographed for the Core Values campaign, and delighted with the way this beautiful portrait of the champion and his grandson captures the idea of transmission, which is of great significance to Louis Vuitton.”
The campaign’s tagline reads: “Some stars show you the way. Muhammad Ali and a rising star. Phoenix, Arizona.” The sportsman follows in the footsteps ofAngelina Jolie, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards andU2 frontman Bono who have all modelled for the label’s Core Values travel line.
