For NBA superstar turned style icon Russell Westbrook, fashion is not just a spectator sport — it pushes boundaries, blurs lines and drives culture.
The new book “Russell Westbrook: Style Drivers” is a celebration of Westbrook’s style on and off the court, and the creative people he admires and works with.
Named 2017’s most fashionable athlete by Sports Illustrated, Russell Westbrook — two-time NBA All-Star MVP — is not your average basketball superstar. Apart from his meteoric rise within the ranks of the NBA, Westbrook is a creative force admired by the fashion industry.
Whether he is seen in the front row of a runway show during Milan Fashion Week, within the pages of Vogue, GQ and the New York Times style section or collaborating with Barneys New York or the Jordan brand, Westbrook has gained the reputation of being the NBA’s real fashion insider.
This book is a collection of images and text that provide a rare glimpse into Westbrook’s world, revealing his bold and cutting-edge outfits worn during the playoffs to images of his collaborations with global style brands. The book explores how to be fearless and confident in fashion and in life, what it means to be stylish, and the importance of authenticity in everything from style and music to art and business.
