The PUMA THROWBACKS collection looks back to a time when hip-hop, b-boys, b-girls and sportswear took over the world. Denying the influence that hip-hop culture has had on mainstream music and interests is impossible – and PUMA has long been at the very forefront of this movement, in regards to both footwear and apparel. The whole ethos of b-boying is ‘oneupmanship’ and, whilst being skilled at music, art or dance is the key, looking good is the other half of the battle.
The Throwbacks collection goes heavy into the colour-block aesthetic and gives it a fresh update it for 2014. Freshly reworked from the PUMA archives, the collection will see a selection of head-to-toe staple classics featuring an oversized ‘formstripe strike-through’ logo. As well as that, there’s block paneling and a choice of colour palette built around two colourways of the PUMA TRINOMIC XT1+ Winterised footwear. The use of neutral tones teamed with striking colour pops is just the ticket, marking the very beginnings of an ongoing apparel collection. With such strong heritage and design, all of us here at The Drop Date are looking forwards to seeing more from this series.
