PUMA by Alexander McQueen 2008 Fall/Winter Collection
With major sporting brands teaming up with popular accomplished designers including the likes of Yohji Yamamoto | Stella McCartney x adidas and Kim Jones x Umbro (dissolved), the pairing of sport and fashion offer an interesting platform that bridges high fashion and the everyday. However with many high-fashion brands delving extensively into the sneaker world, these ongoing collaborations may have lost a bit of luster. However, here’s a good look into designer Alexander McQueen’s collection with Puma on two different styles with inspirations revolving around human anatomy. The Spine Mid Velcro features a smooth transition throughout with a rich leather upper while the Vascular looks to muscle fibers and cells to form the upper with a hint of vintage army style footwear thrown into the mix. Available now at oki-ni.
