Lionel Messi is sharply suited for travel this season, thanks to Louis Vuitton.
The famed soccer player takes center stage as Vuitton’s newest face, starring in a new spring campaign highlighting the luxury brand’s popular Horizon luggage. Titled “Horizons Never End,” the imagery finds Messi strolling through an airport before going through flight security — naturally, with his Vuitton luggage in tow: the $3,400 Horizon 55 rolling suitcase and $2,500 Keepall Bandoulière 50 duffle bag, each crafted with monogrammed brown coated canvas and light nude leather trim.
Messi also packs a Louis Vuitton soccer ball as part of his luggage in the campaign. The sporty equipment is crafted from the brand’s signature monogrammed brown coated canvas, giving the piece a distinctly luxe finish.
Messi opted for an all-black palette when it came to his travel outfit. The Ballon d’Or-winning athlete’s Vuitton attire featured a classic black suit, layered atop a crewneck top. The versatile set was finished with two thin rings and a sleek gold metal lapel pin.
When it came to footwear, Messi slipped on a pair of classic Chelsea boots. The star’s sold-out $1,850 Vendome Flex style, also from Vuitton, featured smooth black leather uppers with elastic side panels. Flexible leather outsoles with short Monogram Flower-detailed heels completed the pair with a subtle height boost, adding to his ensemble’s classic nature.
