NBA champ Serge Ibaka isn’t just all talk when it comes to fashion. While the Toronto Raptors center may be the league’s undisputed king of #BigScarfEnergy, his sartorial ambitions have come full circle with the launch of his very first clothing collection.
Ibaka partnered with Canadian label Nobis on a premium range of gender-neutral outerwear and accessories for his first foray into the fashion world, which the basketball star helped design. The collection features nine limited-edition pieces, including a parka, anorak, bomber jacket, vests, hats, and, obviously, scarves.
“I’m thrilled to collaborate with Nobis on my first fashion collection. Nobis is very simple and chic, which made me really fall in love with the brand,” Ibaka said in a press release. “Getting dressed to me is an art, and I wanted to express myself through this collection and share it with my fans.”
Highlights from the capsule include a lightweight tactical vest that’s perfect for transitional weather while reflective trims and iridescent logos provide extra visibility at night. Accessories like the nylon ripstop bucket hat have also been given extra attention, featuring a tonal “S” logo on the front which reverses to reveal a camo print and Ibaka’s signature “Mafuzzy” catchphrase on the brim.
