The style portfolio of Russell Westbrook is ever expanding.
Westbrook has teammed up with Barneys New York on a sportswear and accessory collection — Westbrook XO Barneys New York (short for Westbrook Exclusively Ours Barneys New York) — set for release in July.

Westbrook told wwd.com that he was “very involved” with and “hands on” in choosing the items available in the collection, which will be a collaboration of Barneys with brands such as Nike Jordan (who Westbrook already represents), Marcelo Burlon, Naked & Famous, Want Les Essentiels, Selima Optique, Del Toro and Globe Trotter.
Westbrook will be on hand later this month when the collection is unveiled at a dinner in Paris.
“This will be my first time going there,” Westbrook said. “I’m really looking forward to it.”
