Louis Vuitton is spotlighting their ties in the art of travel by paying homage to legendary boxer Muhammad Ali in a new advertising campaign.
A team including director Stuart McIntyre, graphic designer Niels Shoe Meulman, and rapper/actor Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) is using art and spoken word to journey through Ali’s career in a series of videos.
