Houston Rockets‘ point guard Russell Westbrook is the latest collaborator to work with Acne Studios, releasing a capsule collection comprised of workwear-indebted denim pieces.

The collection follows Westbrook’s star appearance in Acne Studios’ Spring/Summer 2019 lookbook. For FW19, Westbook and the Swedish label come together to create a capsule that reflects both the NBA player’s off-court style and the imprint’s distinctive aesthetic.

Using colors such as light blue acid wash denim, teal green acid wash denim, white and black, the capsule delivers a minimalist approach to workwear through its half-zip jackets, utility vests and short-sleeve shirts. The duo has given the half-zip jacket a large patch pocket on the front and a drawstring hem, while the vest sports oversized pockets on the front and piping along the seams.

For a nod to Westbrook’s sporting heritage, Acne Studios has given the shirt a distinctive wide placket all the way down the middle, taking inspiration from NBA warmup shirts. Straight leg jeans and the aforementioned shorts round out this collaborative capsule.

Check out the lookbook in the gallery above and shop the entire collection online and in select Acne Studios stores now.
