Men’s accessories brand Hook & Albert launched this week a limited-edition capsule collection with nine-time NBA All-Star Chris Paul, exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue stores in New York City (Fifth Avenue), Beverly Hills, New Orleans, Houston, Chicago, Troy, Atlanta, San Francisco, Chevy Chase and on the Saks website.

The collection is inspired by the Houston Rockets point guard’s appreciation and affinity for fabrics and leathers. New styles such as a Back Pack, Dopp Kit, and an advanced iteration of the Garment Weekend Bag debut in this collection and are all available in slate grey and midnight black colorways with pebbled leather construction and custom gold hardware.
 
Lapel Accessories round out the collection and are available in several colors. In addition, all pieces feature a design that honor’s Paul’s grandfather, who owned a service station while he was growing up.

"Because my career allows me the opportunity to travel the world, packing has become increasingly important." stated Paul. "On the road, organization is necessary, but also I like that my accessories reflect my personal style. Even in sweats, a great leather bag (like a watch) gives your look that added touch of luxury."
 
Earlier this year, Paul starred in the Five Four spring 2017 campaign. The NBA All-Star had a relationship with the men’s fashion brand and subscription service prior to fronting its campaign. The partnership with Hook & Albert began in a similar way.
 
“Cory and I have always been a fan of Chris, both professionally and personally. We cater to today’s mobile man and based on Chris’s travel schedule coupled with his business acumen and style, we feel that he is a strong representation of the Hook & Albert customer”, said Hook & Albert co-founder Adam Schoenberg. “Not only is Chris’ lifestyle a portrayal of how versatile our products are but personally, Chris is a great example of a dedicated athlete, and father who holds his values very high and that speaks to us.”
 
The Hook & Albert >>> Chris Paul collection is available now on the brand’s website and retails from $30 to $585. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Chris Paul Family Foundation.
