MARKING their first collaboration together, Puma and luxury fashion brand Maison Kitsuné have unveiled an exclusive collection, fusing the brand’s Japanese and French design elements with Puma’s sports heritage into a timeless lineup of elevated staples.
Imagined in a soothing tonal colour palette, the collection features both ready-to-wear and footwear, playfully stylised with Maison Kitsuné’s signature Fox logo.
Tracksuits, t-shirts and hoodies boast delicate embroidery and appear alongside utilitarian cargo trousers and military jackets. Crafted from a wind and waterproof technical fabric, each military jacket features a statement graphic-print, multiple front flaps and soft padding – a flawless melding of practicality and elegance.
Footwear is refreshingly minimal, each style accentuated with a rubber mudguard. A Ralph Sampson Mid style comes crafted with a black nylon upper and moulded rubber overlay, while the Roma trainer takes on a more clean look with a white leather upper and contrast stitching. The collection also includes the Ralph Sampson Lo in two brand-new colourways.
Accessories inject a touch of functionality to each look, ranging from a roll-top backpack and waist bag in black or tan to classic caps and bucket hats.
A stylish first launch, this hotly-anticipated partnership is sure to please both collectors and streetwear enthusiasts alike.
