The first collaboration between the eponymous fashion house of style icon Karl Lagerfeld and Puma has led to the birth of a capsule collection for men and women. Its highly anticipated worldwide release took place only days after the anniversary of the original Suede Classic, marking 50 years since the iconic sneakers were released.
What began as an invitation for the fashion house to design an iteration of the classic footwear for the anniversary developed into the 13-piece capsule, which fuses Karl Lagerfeld’s design aesthetics with Puma’s street style. Other brands and personalities to have collaborated on Puma’s Suede 50 program across 2017 and 2018 include Ferrari, Michael Lau, Sonra and Stampd.
The pieces include two unisex suede sneakers inspired by Lagerfeld’s iconic style — a tuxedo jacket, high white collar, tie and sunglasses. In accordance with this theme, the women’s line has a tuxedo-inspired T7 track jacket with matching pants and a T7 jumpsuit, both stylish plays on Puma’s iconic Track Jacket with 7mm stripes. Priced at RM170 to RM670, pieces from the collection are now available for purchase here.
