Russell Westbrook Reunites With Barneys For A Men’s Jewelry Collection
Professional basketball player Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder is reuniting with high-end fashion retailer Barneys for a men’s jewelry collection.
Last September, donbleek.com reported that the NBA player collaborated with the luxury store for a fall 2015/winter 2016 Capsule Collection, called, Westbrook XO Barneys New York (see it here). Westbrook launched the Byredo Westbrook Eau De Parfum with Barneys and last year, he collaborated with the department store on an XO Exclusively Our collection of 16 pieces (hats, shoes, bags and sunglasses in bold patterns, colors and at a high-end price tag) which were all designed by Westbrook himself.
Westbrook and Barneys‘s relationship continues to grow stronger, with a men’s jewelry capsule collection that debuted yesterday Tuesday (December 22).
According to WWD, “The Barneys XO Exclusively Ours Russell Westbrook x Jennifer Fisher collection features four pieces made from brass and plated in 14-karat yellow gold. The Dog Tag with a RW logo on 30-inch link chain retails for $395. The Cigar Band Ring with a hidden RW logo retails for $250. The Toggle Bracelet made with custom hand-crafted links, retails for $795, and the Hard XL Chain Cuff Bracelet also retails for $795.”
“I wanted to create pieces that would be timeless and unique,” said Westbrook. “I also wanted to make sure that they would be easy to wear — guys can layer the collection with pieces they already have or just wear by themselves. It looks effortless.”
“I knew after the first time I met Russell we would collaborate on some level together,” said Fisher. “Russell embodies the ideal male customer for my brand; individuality, strength and warmth without fear to take risks. He is the ideal JF Man.”
The jewelry will be available online at barneys.com and select Barneys New York stores.
