To celebrate Puma Suede’s 50th birthday, the iconic brand has teamed up with another big name in the fashion industry – Hello Kitty, to create a look that is turning heads everywhere.
We are delighted to report that the range, which was first announced all the way back at Complex Con 2017 and is called Puma X Hello Kitty, will not disappoint fans of either brand. To that effect, PUMA’s excellent design team has combined with Hello Kitty to create a line which is innovative, while at the same time, it doesn’t ignore their classic look.
The prices aren’t too hefty either, with the collection consisting of adult footwear priced at around $110 and the youth equivalent coming in at roughly $65. Considering its novelty value, it’s somewhat of a surprise that these kicks aren’t a little bit more expensive.
There are also hoodies ($65), sweatpants ($65) and a t-shirt ($40) clad in the iconic red and white coloring’s of Hello Kitty. Pumas are one of the most fashionable names in casual wear, so it’s refreshing to see them still taking risks, rather than simply resting on their laurels.
The collection is rounded off with a cool hat ($40), gym bag ($30) and a stylish backpack ($70). All of the gear has Hello Kitty’s renowned branding paired with Puma’s known style.
It’s exhilarating to see two of the biggest cats in fashion making such excellent strides.
Unfortunately, on Puma’s own web site, the entire collection is already sold out, but you can still find different items available at retailers like Journey’s and Zappos. Meanwhile, it has just been announced that the collection will also be launching in Indonesia.
