Russell Westbrook Sports Acne Studios S/S 19
For its Spring/Summer 2019 campaign, Acne Studios cast professional basketball player Russell Westbrook. Shot by Juergen Teller, the campaign features the Oklahoma City Thunder star donning the Swedish label’s iconic denim line (jeans were the first piece the label launched when it was founded over 20 years ago).
“I was already a huge fan of Acne Studios, so I was really excited when they asked me to be the face for their new campaign,” Westbrook said in a statement. “I really identify with Acne Studios because their aesthetic is very unique, and I like to be unique too.”
The images show Westbrook in his native Oklahoma wearing a pair of 1996 fit jeans, happily enjoying the outdoors and dribbling a basketball on a court. See some of the images below.
