Puma & Solange Team Up On Second Footwear Collection


PUMA have officially released their second collection of footwear under the creative direction of Solange. Building off of the success of February’s “Girls of Blaze” collection launch, Solange has enlisted the original designers to re-interpret PUMA’s seasonal themes of “Wild Rebel” and “Natural Calm”.

This collaboration sees the singer, songwriter, producer, model and influencer teaming up with friends Gerlan Marcel (GERLAN JEANS), Hisham Bharoocha (visual artist, musician, and photographer) and Darlene and Lizzy Okpo (design team for the women’s wear collection William Okpo), to create a unique PUMA interpretation.


Using two iconic styles for PUMA, the collection is centered around the classic PUMA Suede and the XT2; a much loved favourite from the Trinomic family. Each designer approached these silhouettes in their own way and brought in graphics, a mix of materials and colors or natural fabrics to create these soon to be favourites.


The first drop within the collection, entitled Wild Wonders , features three styles and will be in-store from 28 November. The second drop goes by the name of Behind the Bazaar and will be in-store from 22 December; featuring two styles to get you ready for the holiday season.


PUMA x Solange will be available exclusively from PUMA SELECT stores in Bree Street, Cape Town and Braamfontein in Johannesburg.
