Back in January, artist Shantell Martin and PUMA unveiled a capsule collection. Now the visual artist and the sportswear label announce a second collaboration. This time around, the Spring/Summer 2018 pieces include an apparel and footwear range with Martin’s vibrant, whimsical artwork.
Taking inspiration from the artist’s creativity and her innate passion for self-discovery, the co-branded collection presents new iterations of PUMA’s most iconic silhouettes. The apparel standouts include a navy one-piece and a two-piece dark blue set which comes with a cartoon print.
Emerging in new designs and colourways are the Basket, Clyde which arrives in two different models, the Platform X and the Leadcat slide. The PUMA Basket arrives with a quirky, topsy-turvy detailing. Up next is the Clyde Clear which is a see-through model featuring a white PUMA stripe and tonal lacing, while the Clyde Mid is a mid-leather sneaker with drawn-on cartoon designs in blue and black. The newly designed white Platform X Slip-On has a crossed lacing system paired with blue lined detailing. Lastly, we see the Leadcat slides which come with black and white accents.
In a statement, Martin shares her thoughts on the new collection:
“I had a lot of fun collaborating with PUMA on our new collection for Spring/Summer 2018. It was cool being able to apply my artistic DNA to iconic PUMA silhouettes, but what I particularly loved about the project was hiding little messages throughout the product offering to make something truly unique.”
