Leading up to the event, NBA sponsor Hennessy’s Paradis teamed with Louis Vuitton fine jewelry designer Lorenz Bäumer on a magnum decanter carafe for the league’s 75th anniversary, and gifted a one-of-a-kind version to DJ Khaled. The draftees arrived with Rimowa suitcases and received gift boxes with product from brands such as H&M, MCM, Moose Knuckles, Billionaire Boys Club, Filson, Spalding, Stance, Monfrere, Avirex, Raftis by Ari, Thursday Boot, Tier, ATM Anthony Thomas Melillo, Blue Scarpa, Falconeri, James Cosmetics and Venn Skincare.
Indochino styled six draftees for the evening, including Keegan Murray, Mark Williams, Nikola Jovic, Ousmane Dieng, Jeremy Sochan and Blake Wesley. “This is our second year styling players for the draft,” said Bruce Pask, men’s fashion director of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
“College athletes have [an over] 400 percent higher engagement rate versus the average industry influencer benchmark,” he said. “It was great getting to team with Neiman Marcus for my draft night look,” Holmgren said.
Standouts from the night include Tari Eason’s emerald green dinner jacket and diamond accessories, Dyson Daniels sported a silver suit, Jalen Duren and Johnny Davis wore burgundy ensembles, Jabari Smith lined his suit jacket with his memories playing at Auburn University and Shaedon Sharpe wore a jacket with his logo as an allover pattern.
