As the star point guard of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Russell Westbrook knows a thing or two about being on the road. He spends most of his time traveling during basketball season and, along the way, he’s picked up quite a few accolades — Westbrook is an All-NBA Team member, a six-time NBA All-Star, a two-time NBA All-Star MVP, and an Olympic gold medalist. With all that traveling, Westbrook has discovered exactly what suitcase brand he likes — Tumi — and now the customer has teamed up with the label for a limited-edition capsule collection.

“I couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with Tumi, a brand that I have been a loyal user of for years,” says Westbrook in a statement. “I’ve always enjoyed the process of transforming an idea through the design process, and the creative team at Tumi really executed my vision. I’m proud to share the functional and stylistic collection we’ve created together with people all over the world.”

The Tumi x Westbrook collection is made up of nearly 10 pieces: Double Expansion Travel Satchel, International Carry-on, Smith Jetsetter Tote, both the Morrison and Warren Backpacks, and the Hanging Travel Kit. Each piece in the collaboration comes emblazoned with the question, “Why not?” — Westbrook’s personal mantra that reminds him, and everyone who owns a piece of the collection, to be empowered and persevere.

“I’ve very much enjoyed getting to know and work with Russell over the last year — he’s been an incredible supporter of Tumi long before this collaboration ever began, so it’s made the experience in working together that much more enjoyable because he truly understands the product,” says Victor Sanz, Tumi’s creative director. “Russell has been extremely hands-on every step of the way; the respect, professionalism, and kindness that he’s showed towards our entire team has been unparalleled.”

Now, with the Tumi x Westbrook collection, you, too, can travel like an NBA All-Star.

The pieces range in price from $55-$795 and are available now online, at Tumi retail stores worldwide, and at streetwear mecca Kith.

Oris’ 120th anniversary watch is a sleek, all-black Divers Sixty-Five
Oris drops an all-black Divers Sixty-Five for 120th anniversary
Oris 2024 Holstein edition

When you're between the ages of 1 and, let's say, 13, birthdays are a big deal; your friends come over, there's a big cake and candles, perhaps a magician or a clown shows up to scare everyone, and if you're lucky, it takes place at a roller rink or a bowling alley. Well, Oris watches are turning 120, meaning they've matured quite a bit since the days of party hats and streamers. The Swiss watchmaker has released a Hölstein Edition (named after its hometown) every year for the past five years in order to celebrate its anniversary, with just 250 pieces. Oris uses these Hölstein Editions every year to create some truly head-turning watches, and this year is no different.
Oris watches 2024 Hölstein Edition: As black as a watch can get

Oris watches made 2024 even more special since they hit the big 1-2-0 and gave their ever-popular retro dive watch, the Divers Sixty-Five, an all-black makeover. And when we say "all black," we literally mean all black with not an accent color in sight minus the date window, which is printed in white (after reading that, Batman said, "No, thanks.")
