PUMA X CAREAUX AW16
For AW16, PUMA collaborates with Careaux for the very first time and we think the pair are the most perfect fit!
Netherlands-born graphic designer and self-confessed sneakerhead, Caroll Lynn aka Careaux, , is recognised globally for her femme meets street style and digital artwork inspired by sneakers. PUMA have teamed with her to create a collection that reflects on the five most significant people throughout her life’s journey.
The collection sees a colourful and optimistic hallmark infused throughout, evident from the palette of the footwear to the aesthetic of the apparel designs.
The hallmark floral design ‘Dedication Flower’ using the triangle gradient style became Caroll Lynn’s life signature and she continually uses it to find beauty and strength in dark, difficult times. The colourful and optimistic motif reflects Caroll Lynn’s personality and is infused throughout the debut collaboration.
Featured in the collection is the iconic 90’s running style that’s making a comeback this season is reimagined by Caroll Lynn and is available in black or white suede, with heat embossed gold metal foil branding and finished with soft leather on the heel. Another PUMA classic with a persional Careaux touch is the PUMA Suede. The Suede x Careaux is available in a delicate pallet of white, black or rose suede and features her feminine illustrations with the upper finished in overall classic suede material.
The Blaze Of Glory x Careaux x Graphic is a real stand out piece within the collection, featuring PUMA Trinomic tooling, Caroll creatively combines the functionality of the classic silhouette with art. It features the symbolic rose print she designed with iconic BOG elements finished with perforated leather giving a soft romantic touch.
The colleciton also hots a range of apparel pieces, again adorned in Careaux’s signature graphics. The PUMA x Careaux Rev. Bomber offers a true women’s fit in a classic silhouette. The reversible satin bomber features one side in a delicate colour pallet range with the other side showcasing the Careaux print. The collection is further comprised of feminine jersey tops, leggings, and sweatshirts in the same soft aesthetic, seen throughout the collaborative collection.
