hook & albert x chris paulMen’s accessories label Hook & Albert has teamed up with 9-time NBA All-Star Chris Paul on a new limited-edition capsule collection.

Hook & Albert’s new limited edition men’s accessories collection with Chris Paul will consist of a newly featured back pack, dopp kit, along with an advanced iteration of the brand’s famed and garment weekender bag. Each of these styles will be available in both a slate grey and midnight black featuring pebbled leather and custom gold hardware. In addition to leather goods, the collaboration will also feature a curated collection of lapel accessories offered in a variety of colors.

The design seen throughout the entirety of the collection honors Chris Paul’s grandfather who owned a service station while he was growing up and holds substantial meaning to him. The Hook & Albert x Chris Paul collection will retail from $30- $585 and a portion of proceeds will benefit The Chris Paul Family Foundation.

“Cory and I have always been a fan of Chris, both professionally and personally. We cater to today’s mobile man and based on Chris’ travel schedule coupled with his business acumen and style, we feel that he is a strong representation of the Hook & Albert customer,” said Adam Schoenberg, co-founder of Hook & Albert. “Not only is Chris’ lifestyle a portrayal of how versatile our products are but personally, Chris is a great example of a dedicated athlete, and father who holds his values very high and that speaks to us.”

“Because my career allows me the opportunity to travel the world, packing has become increasingly important,” added Paul. “On the road, organization is necessary, but also I like that my accessories reflect my personal style. Even in sweats, a great leather bag (like a watch) gives your look that added touch of luxury.”

The Hook & Albert x Chris Paul collection will officially launch on the brand’s website as well as exclusively with Saks Fifth Avenue on September 26 at the following locations: New York (Fifth Avenue), Beverly Hills, New Orleans, Houston, Chicago, Troy, Atlanta, Chevy Chase, San Francisco, and on saks.com.
