His size-15 feet have trod a well-worn path in fashion. But now that the kid from Illinois has an National Basketball Association championship to his name (he was the Golden State Warriors’ MVP in last year’s finals) and can afford to buy all of the clothes he wants, what he wants is not exactly the latest Givenchy or Lanvin — although those are quite nice. The look he says he’s after is more elusive: “confidence.” When someone looks at him, he wants them to immediately think: “This person is about something.” This person is focused. Purposeful. “Perception sometimes is reality,” he says. “Not that I care what other people think, but you have to be careful how you’re perceived.” Especially now, he says, when the fatal shootings of so many black men are in the news.
The industry has been welcoming, Igoudala says. It would be hard for fashion, particularly menswear, not to be. That would deny the influence and clout of athletes — especially black athletes — who have been in the forefront of experimenting with style. “I think men’s fashion, even the big houses, they understand” our influence, Igoudala says. “We know our culture influences the masses. . . . They steal our ideas. I don’t want to seem like a Black Panther, but from Day 1 that’s happened.”
