Have you ever wanted to see a woman dressed like the NBA’s most No. 1 fan? I know it’s a weird question, but considering the following news, it’s certainly pertinent (certinent). For here is the news, courtesy of Fashionista.com, your home for all the best professional basketball news:
Now, he’s turning that unparalleled passion into a business. That’s right, James Goldstein is launching a womenswear line. And it’s coming to a fashion week near you soon.
In Goldstein’s own words, the new label will be “a ‘chic rock and roll’ line, in the same spirit as my own style.” The womenswear line will be shown during during Milan Fashion Week in September. “We will schedule presentations at our showroom on the top floor at Via Montenapoleone.” Goldstein says he and his partners–friends Stefano D’Ambrosio and Jean Paul–plan to launch a menswear line in 2014.
“For years now, friends and fans have complimented me on my style and encouraged me to design my own line,” Goldstein explained, of how the company, launched in June 2013, came about. “I have been reluctant to start a new career at this point in my life. But when two of my best friends recently came to me with their plans for a new clothing brand, to be named after me, I could not turn down their offer to be the head designer.”
Finally, Jimmy Goldstein and Amar’e Stoudemire have something in common besides showing up at lots of NBA games and not playing. And also finally, we’re all going to have a chance to get the ladies and very skinny men in our lives the exact kind of fashions they see on the guy who always makes them say “Who is that Cryptkeeper-looking guy in the front row?” when they’re watching basketball games. I think we can all agree that this is a tremendous happening.
And while you might be wondering why this is NBA news, well: 1) it’s August, so anything goes; and 2) the only thing Jimmy Goldstein loves as much as basketball is fashion shows, so relax; plus 3) when you consider how many NBA players love fashion shows, it’s pretty obvious that there will NBA players sitting front row at Jimmy Goldstein’s fashion show at some point. So basically — guy who is equally obsessed with basketball and fashion designs a women’s fashion line during an NBA era when players are equally obsessed with basketball and fashion, eventually leading to NBA players sitting front row at a fashion show designed by the NBA’s No. 1 fan. It’s the circle of life. Ah zabenya.
Not to mention, once you’ve mentally combined Tyson Chandler’s legs with the fact that he loves non-traditional pants, it’s not too far of a stretch to see him throwing down some cashola for a pair of Jimmy Goldstein unisex drop-crotch trousers, should such a thing ever exist in the future. Should that come to fruition, please remember where you heard it first.
