In a collaboration sure to grab the attention of both sports and fashion enthusiasts, Puma, Balmain and Cara Delevingne have teamed up for a boxing-inspired collection slated to drop tomorrow, 21 November. The pieces will be available at select Puma stores in Hong Kong and online via the website here.
“Working with one of our longest standing and iconic partners, Cara Delevingne, and marrying her vision with that of Balmain, such an iconic fashion label, was a huge achievement,” said Bjoern Gulden, CEO of Puma. “To be able to mix Puma’s sport heritage with Balmain’s historic couture legacy really took this collection to the next level. We look forward to continuing a partnership with both Cara and Balmain in the future.”
To be sure, it’s one of the first collaborations of its kind. Designed by Balmain’s Creative Director Olivier Rousteing and model Cara Delevingne, the line is meant to invoke traditional boxing gear interpreted with Parisian elegance. The result is a 35-piece collection that spans the gamut of sportswear and athleisure — from boxing shorts (HK$2,290) to sneakers (HK$3,290) and barrel bags (HK$4,290).
The bulk of the collection is in black but its apparel comes in stark red and blue hues with gold accents that won’t look out of place in Balmain’s couture atelier.
“Everyone involved—Puma, Balmain, Cara and me—was determined to create something timeless,” said Rousteing. “Above all, we knew that our message needed to be a strong one, reflecting exactly who we are and what we believe in.”
Here are the pieces to cop.
The collection will be available at Puma’sFashion Walk flagship and Elements store, as well as Lane Crawford’s Canton Road store and online here.
