Fila is also releasing a new campaign where Bieber is joined by sponsored tennis player Reilly Opelka, as the company celebrates its 50th anniversary of its F-box logo. Introduced in 1973, the logo is a symbol of Fila’s influence in sport and style.

The latest campaign was captured by photographer Renell Medrano, featuring Bieber and Opelka sporting the tennis-inspired F-box anniversary collection.

“I am grateful to expand my role with Fila, a brand that has always stood out for its quality, elegance and bold and beautiful designs,” said Bieber. “I appreciate the brand’s Italian heritage and the eras of Fila fashion where I can continue to draw inspiration. I am excited to bring my own point of view to Fila’s iconic styles, as we work to create something special together.”
