Russell Westbrook for Paper Magazine. Russell wears a jacket by Gucci, pants by Lacoste, glasses by Oliver Peoples, belt by Hermès and watch by Rolex. An excerpt, “Russell Westbrook is an aggressive player on the court. The starting point guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder is known for hitting acrobatic layups and unblockable pull-up jump shots. But Westbrook made his riskiest play last year at a postgame press conference, where he wore a pair of fire-truck red full frames and a Lacoste shirt covered in antique fishing lures. Never mind that the young Thunder team had just demolished the Lakers — where’d he get that shirt?
The Los Angeles native isn’t the only NBA player to take an interest in high fashion or sit front-row at New York Fashion Week with a Vogue editor (as he did with André Leon Talley at the Zac Posen and Ralph Rucci S/S ’13 shows in September), but even the League’s most flamboyant dressers shy away from the bright colors and bold patterns that define Westbrook’s style. Too bad for them, he says: “I just go with what I like.”” Read more here.
