“When I first got into fashion, I only dreamed of being the face of a campaign. For this dream to play out in reality is really exciting,” Westbrook tells GQ over e-mail. “To be the face of Acne Studios around the world really shows how far I’ve come.” And the MVP-level point guard isn’t exaggerating about that. When Westbrook first stormed the world of fashion, his boisterous sense of personal style created fans and haters in equal measure. But over the past few years, he's evolved into an undeniable player within the world of contemporary fashion. Westbrook has released a capsule collection with Barneys New York, collaborated with True Religion, and founded his own streetwear label, Honor the Gift—and his signature Jordan Brand sneakers remain in high demand. And now he can add being the face of a global fashion campaign to the list.
