Russell Westbrook’s Barneys Collection Is Actually Pretty Good
Russell Westbrook XO Barneys is making us eat our words, sort of. It isn't anything to write home about, but the collection is a pretty strong, wearable first showing from the basketball player. Now, that may be because Barneys had a bunch of other great young brands give Russ West a little "guidance" along the way. Regardless, the clothes exceeded expectation because we were expecting brick city.
We especially liked the Westbrook x Want Les Essentiels de la Vie bags. Seems Want L.E.V. is starting to step outside of the box a bit, and not in an obnoxious highlighter-colored type of way.
Who knows? Five years from now, we might be calling Russell Westbrook one of the top designers in menswear.
