First Look: Co-Creative PUMA x Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen

Widely considered one of the visionaries of European streetwear, Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen is known for his unique design sensibilities that break the norms of conventional streetstyle. Drawing inspiration from his personal experience of growing up in the suburbs of Denmark, his Co.Creative collection with PUMA is deeply rooted in the theme ‘From the Outskirts’ - reflecting a down to earth, analogue expression of style through unique street-ready silhouettes. Together with PUMA, he launches Alteration – a brand new silhouette that borrows inspiration from the minimalist aesthetic of suburban Copenhagen and fuses it with post-apocalyptic references. The bulky and futuristic design mixes neutrals with neon, combines material overlays, and pushes the boundaries of contemporary fashion.

Debuting the collection with Alteration PN-1 sneaker pack, Davidsen brings together an unexpected unity of two very different perspectives – while the upper gets a simplistic expression and structure referencing Copenhagen’s outskirts, the sole is a futuristic vision of wavy disproportions and bulky shapes. The sneakers of the season drops in bold Celery-Limelight on 4 April at PUMA Select, Archive & X-Trend stores while the High Rise – Gray Violet colourway drops on 15 April at PUMA Select, X-Trend and Superbalist - both retailing for R2199.
