The Puma X Stampd Capsule Collection Pushes the Boundaries of Streetwear
In 2011 Chris Stamp invented Stampd with the idea that the label “represents contemporary luxury that embraces modern youth culture while retaining iconic styling cues.” The West Coast luxury streetwear label went on to be a huge success, winning Stamp the GQ award in 2015 for Best New Menswear Designer in America. Meanwhile, Puma has been at the forefront of athletic footwear and apparel for the last 65 years. Puma and STAMPD recently joined forces for fall for the PUMA x Stampd capsule collection.
According to the labels, “The footwear collection from PUMA x Stampd encapsulates the nature of this collaboration, combining the development of classic sportswear with the creation of new innovative streetwear. Stampd has included key silhouettes such as the R698 along side developing a new shoe entirely, the Trinomic Sock. The R698 x Stampd is a perfect mix of PUMA performance technologies and iconic running heritage, featuring rich soft leathers and an embossed Stampd logo at the tongue.”
The apparel collection “is a collection of classic and pure statement pieces that consistently push the boundaries of streetwear. Staple colours such as grey, black and white occur throughout this range pulling focus towards the impressive design and forward thinking features.”
Look out for pieces like the Stampd Tech shorts and Tech leggings, both of which were constructed with yoke paneling and have a hidden back pocket with embroidered hidden eyelets. There’s also a reversible Stampd down jacket, a logo tee, and a nylon vest that combine the functionality of sports apparel with Stampd’s signature style. It’s like the past met up with the present to make a line of clothing that is totally futuristic!
