NBA star Russell Westbrook is out to prove he’s a jack of all trades.
The Oklahoma City Thunder guard is enjoying some of his offseason free time at New York Fashion Week, where he’s been spotted at the Tom Ford, Yeezy Season 4, Prabal Gurung and Altuzarra shows. He’s also hopped on the party circuit, appearing at Harper Bazaar’s Icons and Barneys New York parties.
In fact, Barneys has decided to take advantage of Westbrook’s off-court fashion tastes and has appointed him guest fashion director during NYFW. It makes sense: Westbrook has a knack for mixing patterns and is as comfortable in a casual athletic look as he is in a suit.
Introducing Barneys' Guest Fashion Director for #NYFW: @russwest44! The Oklahoma City Thunder basketball player and fashion-enthusiast will accompany the Barneys team front row, taking in the latest SS17 collections to share with you.

At several events, Westbrook has teased his latest lifestyle shoe with Jordan Brand, the Jordan Westrbook 0.2.
