Looks like Russell Westbrook has a little competition in the Basketball Player/Fashion Designer world. Now Dwayne Wade isn’t a novice to fashion as he has an accessories line, Way of Wade with Li Ning but now he’s partnering up with Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared to launch Dsquared2 x Wade which will be exclusive to Saks 5th Ave.
Wade wanted to be able to take his collection from day to night with this capsule. The fashionably athletic inspired collab will consist of a 9 piece collection with nylon bomber jackets, embellished collar shirts, tuxedo jackets and what’s a collaboration with a 3 time NBA champ without fitted joggers?
Wade, who has sat front row next to Anna Wintour multiple times, actaully credits Bon Jovi for getting his start in fashion. He noted that he mention to Bon Jovi that he wanted to a fashion line and was asked, “What have you done?” Wade responded “Nothing,” Jovi told Wade to build his portfolio. Which is what he did and now Wade has arrived.
