Several fashion brands are eager to sign him as their ambassador, with Dior and Oakley already securing his favor.
In a fashion landscape where the intersection of sports and style is not uncommon, the transition from the soccer field to the world of fashion is gaining prominence. Renowned athletes like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and David Beckham have paved the way by embracing sportswear before establishing themselves in fashion and the luxury sector. However, Kylian Mbappé, with his impressive achievements at such a young age and growing influence, is making a significant entrance into the world of fashion icons.
In 2018, Hublot, the Swiss watchmaker, named Kylian Mbappé as its ambassador, marking the first time an active player had received such an honor. This status allowed the young prodigy to meet one of his idols, Pele, in a historic encounter in Paris. As a world champion, French champion, and Champions League finalist, Kylian quickly caught the attention of fashion and luxury giants.
In December, luxury brand Dior appointed Kylian Mbappé as its global ambassador. He now represents Dior Homme creations and the Sauvage fragrance, making it a strategic move for the brand’s marketing. Just a month later, eyewear brand Oakley signed the soccer star for its new campaign, focusing on shared values like determination and hard work.
With a massive following on social media, including over 60 million on Instagram, Kylian Mbappé is well on his way to becoming an icon in the exclusive world of fashion. It’s highly likely that other brands are working behind the scenes to secure the services of this French prodigy.
