Barneys New York is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook. Known as much for his panache on the basketball court as off, Mr. Westbrook is one of the NBA’s most memorable dressers, walking the underbellies of sports arenas as if they were high-fashion runways.
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. The first pieces will arrive at Barneys stores—and Barneys.com, of course—beginning in mid-July. (You’d be wise to set an iCal reminder now.)
In the meantime, get clued in to Mr. Westbrook’s stylish sensibility on the @BarneysMan Instagram feed. On June 28, he’ll be ‘gramming highlights from Paris Fashion Week alongside the Barneys Men’s team. We look forward to seeing the City of Lights through Russell Westbrook eyes.
