Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook has a new fashion project which is curating products for Barneys New York. This exclusive collaboration with Barneys is called Westbrook XO Barneys New York.
Westbrook will team up with menswear designers like Les Essentiels, Naked & Famous, Marcelo Burlon, Selima Optique, Del Toro and Globe Trotter and Nike Jordan. They will design various collections of denim, sportswear, leather goods, footwear, bespoke luggage and eyewear that will be available at all Barneys stores and online
“We chose the designers because they were experts in their field and there was a natural fluidity with Russell’s style and taste. But everything was very collaborative,” Tom Kalenderian, Barneys executive vice president for menswear, told WWD. He added that Westbrook was “very accessible” while working on the project.
“I’m kind of like a designer,” Westbrook told WWD. “My personal style changes every season.”
