PUMA X TRAPSTAR LONDON COLLECTION
PUMA have launched a teaser of what’s to come - an exciting collaboration with London-based streetwear brand, Trapstar. Conceived in London Town, Trapstar was born when the co-founders Mikey, Lee and Will Trapstar began making custom t-shirts for friends.
It wasn’t long before their bold, graphic t-shirts were worn by celebrities, including PUMA’s Global Creative Director and Ambassador Rihanna. The PUMA x Trapstar teaser drop features one of PUMA’s most iconic silhouettes, the DISC Blaze, together with a long-sleeve Goalkeeper Shirt.
The PUMA DISC Blaze x Trapstar features an all-over leather upper on a cleaner, simplified DISC shoe. Finished in black, even the DISC cage has been given a soft nubuck leather treatment.
Exemplifying Trapstar’s design ethos, the shoe includes a red colour pop on its DISC strap and a graphic Trapstar logo on the heel. The white speckled midsole sits alongside the translucent red outsole giving the shoe the ultimate balance between streetwear and fashion. These are SO boss, the colourway is absolutely spot on for this silhouette. A sick merging of two brands.
The PUMA x Trapstar Goalkeeper Shirt is a true partnership between the two brands. Taking inspiration from its own football jersey range, Trapstar has evolved the PUMA Football performance piece to create a shirt that can take the wearer from the field to the city.
The speckled print ties the shirt to the design of the PUMA DISC Blaze x Trapstar sneaker and bears Trapstar’s iconic print. Constructed from a super soft engineered jacquard, the shirt features Dry-Cell technology and a reflective print showing what happens when sportswear and streetwear come together.
The PUMA X Trapstar Disc (£125) and Goalkeeper shirt (£85) is available on December 19th at Harvey Nichols, Chimp and End Clothing.
