Dwyane Wade Killed It at Men’s Paris Fashion Week—Man Bag and All

Dwyane Wade and fashion just go together. The Chicago Bulls shooting guard recently flew off to Paris for the Spring 2018 men’s collections, joined by his wife Gabrielle Union. Together, they sat front row at shows like Balmain and Off-White, and while Wade always manages to keep cool on the red carpet, he unleashed his inner fashion fan this week: twinning with Union at Thom Browne and even carrying a much-maligned man bag. Here, Wade takes us through his Parisian adventures with a few cameos from his fellow dapper athletes.

When it’s too hot to wear a sweater, but you still want layers. Tie it around your chest.

Thom Browne is so much more than fashion. It is theater. I get excited to see what he is going to do with his show.
