AW’15 will see PUMA collaborate on a second collection with New York creative Vashtie Kola in a collaboration thats an evolution of her previous line (drawing particularly on street and soccer wear). The footwear designs include two hero silhouettes, R698 and the States Mid. The classic R698 has been reinvented with a futuristic liquid gold effect creating an exclusive statement piece. The States however have maintained its classic design whilst Vashtie has injected her playful style with exciting textures and colour-ways.
The apparel’s balance of street and soccer sportswear according to Puma “provides an edgy ‘sports luxe’ range reflective of Vashtie’s own unique style.” The Vashtie Soccer Jersey is a ‘90s twist on a current trend, while Vashtie Tank uses PUMA archive branding to create a classic look. PUMA x Vashtie have reinvented the basketball short through a high-rise waist, giving them a feminine feel. Vashtie’s leggings, with their choice of all over prints, are the essence of the collaboration; taking iconic pieces and recreating them with a streetwear twist.
This collection will be dropping through premium global retailers including KITH NY, NastyGal.com, Concept Cambridge, and BAIT LA
