RUSSELL WESTBROOK TEAMS UP WITH BARNEYS NY ON EXCLUSIVE COLLECTION
Russell Westbrook has quickly become one of the NBA’s sartorial all-stars. Entering into the fashion game off-the-court was a natural progression for the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard. Earlier this year he teamed up with underwear company, Kings & Jaxs. He put his design skills to the test, creating a pair of “Why Not” boxer briefs for the brand. Now Westbrook is sharing his unique sense of style in a new collaboration with Barneys New York.
“I’m kind of like a designer,” Westbrook told WWD. “My personal style changes every season.”
Westbrook has curated a capsule collection of sportswear and accessories, which will include a variety of menswear brands that the NBA baller wears himself. The line falls under the tag: “Westbrook XO Barneys New York,” and be available at Barneys stores and Barneys.com in mid-July. According to the brand:
“Mr. Westbrook and Barneys have collaborated on an ongoing XO Exclusively Ours collection of more than 60 pieces from labels like Marcelo Burlon County of Milan, Selima Optique, Nike Jordan, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie, Naked & Famous, Limoland, Globe-Trotter, and Del Toro—all designed with Westbrook’s sharp yet appropriately playful aesthetic.”
Prior to the collection launch, Westbrook will attend Paris Fashion Week along with the Barneys Men’s team. On June 28, he will be sharing highlights from Paris on the @BarneysMan Instagram feed.
