Naomi Osaka unveiled her debut collection with ADEAM at NYFW.
The 22-year-old tennis player, who has already won two grand slam titles, just made her first big foray into fashion.
The Naomi Osaka collection, which includes five items, debuted during ADEAM‘s New York Fashion Week show.
It will be featured on ADEAM’s first-ever e-commerce site.
The line is compromised of “sporty” yet “designer” pieces that a variety of woman can wear.
“We did this with a lot of people in mind.
It’s not too crazy; it’s not too simple.
It’s comfortably in the middle … That was the goal we had in mind”.
For Osaka, creating a fashion line was a moment she “never thought” would ever actually happen.
Osaka also admitted that she’s always had a passion for fashion, saying ever since she was young she “liked sketching stuff and trying to put different clothes together”.
According to Hanako Maeda, founder of ADEAM, working with Osaka was “easy”.
“It was really easy to work together, because we had a lot of similarities, and we also share our Japanese heritage”
