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.
