K-pop band BTS’s J-Hope, also known as Jung Hoseok, is the latest celebrity to join the Louis Vuitton family as a global ambassador. His selection into the prestigious fashion house is unsurprising, given his immense popularity among K-pop fans worldwide.
J-Hope will join the ranks of celebrities like Emma Stone, Jennifer Connelly, and Alicia Vikander, who have all previously been ambassadors for Louis Vuitton. With this new collaboration, he joins an elite group of people who have represented such a famous brand in recent years.
It’s Official! J-Hope Is Louis Vuitton’s New ‘House Ambassador’
J-Hope is the third member of BTS to sign a lucrative luxury brand deal in recent months after Suga and Jimin. In addition, he has been named the newest ambassador of Louis Vuitton, and he will represent the brand in the future.
This isn’t a massive surprise to the BTS ARMY since J-Hope was recently spotted at Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2023 Menswear Show in Paris. But unfortunately, this collaboration between Louis Vuitton and the boy band was terminated after it was first announced in 2021.
J-Hope has been praised by the French fashion house, which said in its press release that he is one of the world’s biggest icons, captivating fans with his upbeat energy, precise choreography, and creative musical direction. The brand also stated that the star had left no stone unturned when it came to pushing the boundaries of his artistic expression and inspiring audiences worldwide.
It was announced on Friday (February 24) that he would join the luxury firmly in a newly created role. In its introductory statement, Vuitton described BTS as “21st-century pop icons” and said that J-Hope “brings his unique style and charm to this exciting upcoming chapter with the Maison.”
