More than any other brand of athlete, professional basketball players simply ooze style. In particular, 3-time champion Dwyane Wade has helped bring about a more sartorial NBA locker room. Thus, it’s no surprise that Wade, with the help of Hublot and French luxury brand Berluti, hosted an exclusive styling event at the Hublot Galerie boutique in the Miami Design District.
The event, called RunWade Style, gave the NBA star the perfect opportunity to share style tips for the upcoming fall season, featuring key timepieces and looks from both Hublot and Berluti. During the info session, guests sipped cocktails and enjoyed hors d’oueves.
D-Wade is no stranger to the fashion industry. He became Hublot’s first international ambassador in 2011 and served as the official ambassador of the inaugural New York Fashion Week: Men’s in July 2015. With Hublot, Wade launched two successful timpieces, the King Power D-Wade and the Classic Fusion Dwyane Wade.
“Fashion and style have always been important to me; they are part of my day-to-day life,” said Dwyane Wade. “Working with Hublot over the years has allowed me to experiment with my own personal sense of style, and I’m thrilled to partner with the brand to share this vision with my local community.”
“The Hublot brand is proud to present RunWade Style to support our ambassador Dwyane Wade,” said Hublot of America Managing Director Jean-François Sberro. “We have a long-standing history with the Miami market, and we are dedicated to our presence in South Florida. Hublot is thrilled to continue our support of Dwyane, and contribute towards his philanthropic endeavors through the fusion of sports and fashion.”
