PUMA describes their XO Collection with the Weeknd as ” him personified and here to break the rules of streetwear: bomber jackets, boots, and kimonos are finished with camo, suede, and denim. Classic meets futuristic. Military meets luxury. “The campaign was shot in mysterious Marfa, Texas, a perfect backdrop that compliments the PUMA x XO creative language.
Commenting on the debut collection, The Weeknd says , “We’ve been building the XO brand for a long time now. It’s gone beyond product and the PUMA x XO collab is an extension of everything we’ve been doing. For XO, partnering with a powerhouse like PUMA and having the ability to create a new aesthetic is an amazing opportunity.”
The collection releases in 3 drops, each differentiated by a unique aesthetic. The first drop is the first-ever PUMA x XO footwear – the PUMA Parallel. Inspired by military and utilitarian gear, the all-new silhouette is a mid-cut sneaker boot that’s fully decked out in luxurious Italian nubuck leather upper. The smooth rubber midsole features IGNITE cushioning technology. The boot boasts of a contemporary blocked heel design with an extended Formstrip and co-branded labels.
The PUMA x XO Parallel drops on August 24th on PUMA.com, PUMA stores and select sneaker and fashion retailers worldwide.
