This month, KARL LAGERFELD collaborates with PUMA for the first time ever, to introduce a capsule collection for men and women. Marking 50 years since their iconic sneaker’s first launch, PUMA’s “Suede 50” program throughout 2018 culminates in the highly-anticipated release of the KARL LAGERFELD X PUMA collection.
It will launch worldwide on October 19, three days following the official 50th anniversary of the original Suede Classic release. Originally invited to design a KARL LAGERFELD iteration of the classic Suede sneaker for the anniversary celebration, the partnership soon developed into the creation of a complete 13-piece capsule.
Those sneakers are great! Love the sunglasses detail…
The KARL LAGERFELD X PUMA collection features two unisex Suede sneakers inspired by KARL LAGERFELD’s iconic signature aesthetic – a tuxedo jacket, high white collar, tie and sunglasses. The shoes blend Karl’s timeless look with contemporary streetwear style, and feature either a playful KARL graphic or removable sunglasses detail.
Love this jumpsuit!
The women’s offering includes a tuxedo-inspired T7 track jacket with matching pants and a T7 jumpsuit, both are stylish plays on PUMA’s iconic track jacket with 7mm stripes, a track top, and a cropped tee.
The men’s collection features a slim-fit hoodie and matching sweat pants, plus a logo tee. The clothing styles is further complemented by a backpack, a shoulder bag and a baseball cap featuring custom KARL LAGERFELD X PUMA branding.
