Basketball Star Turns Eyewear Designer

Russell Westbrook introduces his new line in Paris.

Oklahoma City Thunder star – and Olympic gold medalist in basketball -- Russell Westbrook is the latest sports figure to enter the eyewear market, with a line of frames introduced last week in Paris. The 25-year-old Oklahoma City Thunder basketball star tells, “I’ve always loved fashion and Westbrook Eyewear allows me to share my passion with both men and women with my new unisex collection.” Westbrook is no stranger to fashion, says Elle: “He made the rounds this season at the men’s shows in Paris and was snapped by the street style photogs for his impressive swagger.” Barneys will be selling three of Westbrook's frames exclusively, while 10 additional styles are available on his website. Prices range from $95-$145.
