Amar'e Stoudemire x Rachel Roy

At first, this Amar'e Soudemire collaboration with American Designer Rachel Roy caught me off guard, but if you take a step back - its pretty easy to identify Amar'e as one of the best dressed players in the League (some of his fashion highlights have been copied after the jump). For those of you that don't follow High Fashion (Women's at that) - Rachel Roy started her own line in 2005 after interning at Roc-A-Fella and eventually heading the Women's and Children's division of the brand. Hollywood elite such as Michelle Obama, Diane Sawyer, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Garner, Iman, Lucy Liu, Sharon Stone and Penélope Cruz have worn Rachel Roy collection pieces to various formal gatherings and award shows - and with her lines being sold at Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Sak's, and a side-venture/more affordable collection at Macy's - she is a force in women's fashion that is here to stay. 

When the worlds of Amar'e and Rachel collide - you get a sporty, yet chic, collection of Women's gear that can be worn anywhere from the supermarket to the club. Check it out in its entirety here, and don't forget to head after the jump to see Amar'es best fashion looks, and the joint interview between Amar'e and Rachel Roy discussing the design process, after the jump.
