From NBA Hall-of-Famer to philanthropist and now a designer? LeBron James is a lot of things, and adding to his extensive repertoire of talents, the famed athlete has officially entered the style sphere in his own right. Following on from a collaboration with suiting-turned-sportswear extraordinaire Thom Browne, James has ushered in his first-ever private label collection from UNKNWN, his Miami boutique.

Aptly titled ‘UNKNWN Collection’, the initial release consists of 14 ready-to-wear pieces and heroes easy staples that can be chopped and changed within the capsule itself. Reinterpreting kit essentials silhouettes such as t-shirts, tailored chinos, hoodies and flannel long-sleeve shirt, the pieces are made with high-quality Italian fabrication for luxury appeal. Adding to its wearability, the styles are all presented in a neutral colour palette and includes blues, blacks and greys. Key pieces include the dark-dyed cotton canvas twill tour jacket, light knitted jacket in custom-milled plaid flannel fabrics and cropped pants with single stitch “unfinished” hems.

‘Collection 001’ will join the already established UNKNWN Hotel and UNKNWN Sport lines. You can shop the entire collection here.
