Vashtie x Puma

Thank you Puma for these pieces from the new Vashtie x Puma collection! Much appreciated!

New York-based artist, filmmaker and designer Vashtie Kola teams up with PUMA for a debut Spring/Summer 2015 collaboration that includes a selection of ready-to-wear unisex pieces.  And it was just a matter of time till this happened, because Vashtie is all over New York’s fashion scene. And I have seen her so many times during my NY visit last September. The collection is inspired by New York City and the age of 80s Bboy culture and 90s alternstyle.

The lookbook for the Vashtie x Puma collection was photographed around downtown Manhattan metro station and brings up some of my own NYC memories. The range includes tanks and jerseys, bombers embellished with patches and gold zippers, and geometric-patterned leggings, all rinsed over with a color palette of gold, burgundy and black.

Solange x Puma

And Solange did it again!
And even better than the first time.

Following the success of the Girls of Blaze collection debuted this past February, PUMA unleashes its second collection of footwear — under creative direction of Solange. The release welcomes the return of the previous collection’s original designers Gerlan Marcel, Hisham Bharoocha and sister duo Darlene and Lizzy Okpo to re-interpret PUMA’s seasonal themes of “Wild Rebel” and “Natural Calm.” The first drop is entitled “Wild Wonder,” featuring three styles that will release on November 28th and the second “Behind the Bazaar” features two styles that will release on December 13th. The new collection is centered around two iconic styles for PUMA, the classic PUMA Suede and the XT2, a much loved favorite from the Trinomic Family. Each designer approached the sneaker’s silhouettes in their own way and brought in graphics, a mix of materials and colors or natural fabrics.

Dope as fuck!
