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.
In two particular videos “Dream” and “Word,” Yasiin Bey delivers some of Ali’s famous taunts in the boxer’s self-assured manner while Meulman paints calligraphy style letters on a ring floor with a broom.
