In the middle of summer vacations, FIFA World Cup excitement, and Wimbledon, the world of sports and entertainment was electrified with the news that LeBron James signed with the Los Angeles Lakers. Already having a footprint in Los Angeles with an entertainment production company along with a residence, LeBron James—the man, the philanthropist, the businessman, and the athlete—is also a man of great personal style. With that, while we are working on our Fall style issue, we’ve selected a few of our favorite summer-to-fall product picks, inspired by LeBron’s maverick style presence.
