You might recall Russell Westbrook was the punchline of one of Drake’s best jokes during last week’s 2014 ESPY awards show, but the three-time NBA all-star (and apparent fashion victim) has just launched a clothing line in collaboration with luxury retailer Barneys New York that might be changing Drizzy’s opinion. Entitled “Westbrook XO-Barneys New York” the collection marks the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard’s inevitable debut in department stores nationwide and features denim, sportswear, leather goods, eyewear, footwear, and luggage all repping Westbrook’s playful style.

This first season of the ongoing collaboration features limited edition pieces in partnership with a diversity of power brands, including Jordan, Marcelo Burlon County of Milan, Naked & Famous, Want les Essentiels de la Vie, Selima Optique, Del Toro, and Globe Trotter. Westbrook was directly involved in the design process, ensuring that the collection reflects his well-documented personal aesthetic.

Colorful prints and extended silhouettes dominate, as does the long-trending combination of athletic shorts and man-leggings. And while averaging 20+ points per game might provide the confidence for some to sport a few of these styles, the full collection is now available online and at Barneys New York stores nationwide.
