04 Mar PUMA x Vashtie
I think by now, everyone pretty much knows that I am a Nike girl through and through… I blame the Air Max 1 – my absolute favourite sneaker of all time. It was love at first sight, and downhill from there. However, twice now, Puma has had me all flustered and excited because of their collaborations with fearless dope women. First they appointed Solange Knowles artistic creative consultant and created some pretty covetable sneakers, which I had to have and wore here, and now with they have collaborated with my ultimate girl crush and favourite person on Snapchat Vashtie Kola.
Based in New York; one of my absolute favourite cities in the world; and an all round creative person, Vashtie is a DJ, a model, party promoter and director. She was the first woman to have designed a shoe for Nike Air Jordan, she dated Pharrell Williams once upon a time, and she has her own brand Violette and still has time to update her blog.
” The collaboration with PUMA (PUMA x Vashtie) is inspired by the urban music and lifestyle scene of the 70s, 80s and 90s.” There’s mesh tees, shorts,varsity jackets and did I mention that there is mesh?
The collection will be exclusively available from 9 March 2015 at PUMA SELECT stores in Bree Street (Cape Town) and Braamfontein (Johannesburg); as well as Shelflife, X Trend, Dip Street Store, Queens, Soho, Brands Unlimited and Lyme.
