A few months ago, PUMA launched its debut collection from their collaboration with renowned artist, Shantell Martin. The team have once again joined forces for the extension of the PUMA x Shantell Martin range.
Martin has created a language of lines with her whimsical approach to art and graphic design. Her thought-provoking and memorable world of characters and messages bridges the gap between fine art, performance art, and everyday life, which is what drew the collaboration with PUMA’s lifestyle range. While her debut range, which featured classics such as the Suede and Clyde were monotone, the latest collaboration is much more of a colour exploration along with her signature illustrations. The ‘90s, rave-inspired feel is extended to additional silhouettes in the form of the Basket, Leadcat, Platform and Muse sneakers. The collection features premium materials, pops of colour, and intricate detailing to create a unique, bold, and beautiful lineup. The sneakers also feature some of Martin’s catchphrases, including “Find Your Way”, “One, Two, Free” and “Are You You.”
