Superstar athlete, business mogul and global culture icon LeBron James has always been at the forefront of fashion and footwear, whether through his own signature shoes or keen personal sense of style. On Tuesday, February 13th at the Lakers vs. Pistons game in Los Angeles, James showcased a head-turning outfit that had fans and casual onlookers curious. One of the pieces he donned was a varsity jacket that highlights a collaboration between renowned cognac maker Hennessy and legacy sportswear label Mitchell & Ness.

The Hennessy x Mitchell & Ness varsity jacket is a yet-to-be-released collaboration between the two brands – the duo have come together for a wider capsule to honor the legacy of Hennessy as the global spirit of the NBA.

This is the first time the limited edition varsity jacket has made its way in the public eye. With that said, the collaborative piece is now starting to garner hype amongst cognac and sport apparel enthusiasts as the partnership aims to celebrate a shared passion for excellence and authenticity between Hennessy and Mitchell & Ness. The collab is the quintessential fashion moment that offers sophistication alongside sporty aesthetics.

With anticipation quickly rising, those looking to secure pieces from the collaboration should note that there will be friends and family only pieces, as well as a retail drop in a different colorway. The friends and family items add another dimension of collectivity for those always looking to secure limited edition products, especially those loyal to Hennessy and Mitchell & Ness.

The Hennessy x Mitchell & Ness partnership will be highlighted during the NBA All-Star weekend at Hennessy Arena in Indianapolis, IN. The tour stops at San Francisco on Saturday, March 9.

Ultimately, this collection amplifies the seamless blend of style and spirit that both Hennessy and Mitchell & Ness bring to basketball fandom and culture, elevating the off-court fashion game on a global scale.

The Hennessy x Mitchell & Ness collaboration will be available both for purchase as well as gifts with purchase. Fans and fashion enthusiasts are encouraged to stay tuned by registering at Hennessy.com for more details on the upcoming release.
