Everyday, Game Day

The NBA is back and that means so is the fashion!!!!

As the NBA gears up for a new season, the league is in the midst of lots of young players making their own fashion statements against the veterans. This year, the kids will complete the uprising. Leading the charge of course is Russell Westbrook, who graced the cover of the Sports Illustrated fashion issue. Not far behind him are some young stars, like these four pictured above, Jordan Clarkson, D’Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram, and Julius Randle.

As we know the worlds of fashion and sports are interconnected. From athletes launching fashion lines to celebrities serving as the face of athletic brands, we are seeing endless crossover. Basketball stars know how to get our attention! Aside from them being superstars in the game, they captivate us with their swag from game to game. From statement making suits, to signature sneaks, they are leading the trends on fashion conversation. As the two worlds collide, the NBA season becomes its own runway show with more fun fashion then I can take. I mean I am already dreaming up who is going to be the best dressed over All-Star weekend here in Los Angeles. Are you ready for the season and the endless fashion excitement?

Here are my fashion favorites below, including some new young talent and those veterans with swag.

NBA All-Star 2017

Well, I have made it back from NBA All-Star to NYC, and it sure didn’t disappoint. Moving the event to NOLA, definitely provided for a fun experience since Mardi Gras also began over the weekend.

NBA LAB X NBA Crossover

The NBA LAB has all things collaborations going on, and they hosted a three day suite that was full of new brands showcasing all their products. NBA LAB x SprayGround are just dope.  Also the bracelets from Rastaclat and the Pintrill pins are pretty dope. I got to take a few home with me!
