Stylish NBA Player Russell Westbrook Unveils A New Collection With True Religion8

Last year, donbleek.com reported that NBA player and fashion trendsetter Russell Westbrook has been chosen to front True Religion‘s Spring/Summer 2015 Ad Campaign. A week later, we reported that the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard was serving as the campaign creative director at True Religion.

The stylish basketball player has unveiled his latest collaboration with True Religion: a 15-piece capsule collection featuring denim, tees, tanks, and a leather jacket.

“We have a lot of similarities: what we believe in, how we want to portray our brands,” said Westbrook. He added, “I think I use a mindset of ‘Why not?’ That’s my slogan. That’s how they brand it. They are risk-takers,” he said of his new partners.

As for his fashion influences: “My mom was big for me,” he says. “She kept myself, my brother, and my dad on point. She made sure we dressed nice and that we were up to date.”

“I wanted the pieces to all work together,” said Westbrook. “If you wear a tank under the T-shirt or under the cutoffs, the materials work together. I wanted to keep them light.”

“I sit down with Barneys, I sit with them at different shows and learn about different materials.  I’ve been able to sit down with Anna [Wintour]. I’ve been able to sit down with AndrĂ© Leon Talley. Every time I go to a show I ask questions about different fabrics,” he says. “Fashion, I take it seriously.” Why not?
