France footballer Kylian Mbappé has put pen to paper on a multi-year partnership with famed eyewear brand Oakley.
The 23 year old — who recently also become an ambassador for Dior — is already considered as one of the best footballers in the world, and now, alongside Oakley, the Paris Saint-Germain forward serves as the brand’s new “Be Who You Are” campaign, which chronicles his journey and highlights his individual attitude and spirit.
The short-film tells the story of a young Mbappé born in the suburbs of Paris with a dream to lead his country back to the grandest stage with a World Cup victory — something he eventually achieved in 2018.
“Everyone knows what I’m all about when it comes to football – now, I’m excited to partner with a brand that wants to share my story off the pitch, and support what I want to do to help inspire global youth,” said Kylian Mbappé.
“I relate to the Oakley attitude in many ways – the disruptive, innovative spirit and the drive to create positive change. The “Be Who You Are” message resonated very strongly with me and I want to help instill that belief in staying true to yourself and that self confidence in others. And of course, the eyewear is pretty cool – you really feel like a superhero when you put on Kato!”
