We’ve been following basketball star turned style star Russell Westbrook from the NBA courts—where he plays point guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder—all the way to Paris, where he recently took in the men’s fashion shows. Today, his transformation into a full-fledged fashion guy is complete: Westbrook XO Barneys New York is available now.
“I really enjoy the whole design process in itself,” Westbrook told us of his debut as a designer. “This was my first time doing this, so learning about what goes into the design process and watching something be created from start to finish got me excited to do it even more.” First up in the exclusive collab? Pieces by Jordan, Want Les Essentiels de la Vie, Selima Optique, Del Toro, and more.
And what better model to show off the new styles than Westbrook himself? “I love the creativity that fashion allows you to have, and how much you can express yourself through your clothes and accessories,” he said. The first season of Westbrook XO Barneys New York is available in-stores and online—but we have a feeling it will go faster than #0 driving to the basket. Shop the collection now!
