In a foil between the ghetto of West Philly and the swankiness of Bel-Air, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air x Puma collaboration looks to both locales to accentuate the differences often seen on the popular TV show. The recently seen West Philly First Round is emblazoned with graffiti while the Bel-Air Clyde offers a different approach with high quality Italian croc skin leather and gold highlights. The pack also includes a gold Forcer watch. The whole Fresh Prince of Bel-Air x Puma pack will release May 17th.
An eventful meeting in Rome between Pakastani Muslim Farah Malik and Libyan Jew Dana Arbib led to the creation of A Peace Treaty. The brand was born out of duo’s creative resemblances for high fashion and the disappearing art of textile production. Their production enables talented artisans to ply their trade in difficult socio-economic conditions. Each collection focuses on a specific region, with the 2008 Spring collection inspired by the Punjab region of India.
As a mentor and successful artist in his own right, Mark Dean Veca has established himself through his innovative and psychedelic works. His work often exercises a fantastical and liberal aesthetic as he brings a contemporary edge to classic styles.

A show that needs no real introduction, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has had a long lasting impact on youth culture. Whether it be Will rocking OG Jordans to flipping his suit jacket inside-out, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was always defining in his style. In an upcoming collaboration, Puma has teamed up with The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on a two pack of sneakers. Seen here is the West Philly First Round Pack which features the same iconic graffiti seen in the opening credits. The pack also includes a fluorescent green Agitation watch. Look for these to release May 17th, 2008.
