Luxottica and more specifically the eyewear brand Oakley is pleased to announce a new global partnership with SA rugby star Siya Kolisi. The national rugby captain – who’s inspirational journey to success has motivated many – recently commanded the world’s attention, when he led the Springboks to a startling Rugby World Cup win in 2019.
“To stand side-by-side with some of the world’s greatest athletes within the Oakley family is really exciting,” says Siya Kolisi. “I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve with this partnership and with the Global platform that Oakley offers.”
As a long-time Oakley enthusiast, Siya joins a high-calibre team of internationally renowned sporting professionals, including Derwin James of the Los Angeles Chargers, Patrick Mahomes II of the Kansas City Chiefs, Olympic-Gold medallist snowboarder Chloe Kim and PGA champion, Bubba Watson as part of the brand.
