After releasing a debut collection in September 2019, Nipsey Hussle‘s The Marathon Clothing and PUMA are re-issuing key pieces from the co-branded capsule. Aiming to honor the late rapper/community activist’s legacy and continue supporting his Neighborhood Nip foundation, the re-release is also accompanied by a brand-new lookbook featuring some of Hussle’s family members and closest friends.
Consisting of colorful and cozy sportswear, each piece in the collection was cut to fit Nipsey’s personal measurements, making for a homage that runs deeper than logos and hues. Offerings include sporty fleece sweatsuits and tracksuits in vivid shades of red and black as well as work suits and graphic t-shirts. Co-branded TMC and PUMA graphics are present on each piece, and the Marathon finish line flag is cleverly worked into a handful of outerwear offerings by way of a small tag on the seam.
Special PUMA California footwear returns as well, appearing in both black and white leather with crisp red accents that contrast the apparel to perfection. Exuding West Coast cool, both silhouettes mix classic style with Nispey’s signature elegant-yet-forceful flair. The aforementioned lookbook images include Nipsey’s fiancee, actress Lauren London, as well as his good friend and frequent collaborator YG and select TMC associates.
The TMC x PUMA collection will re-release on February 1 via the PUMA webstore and select stockists. Retail prices range from $40-$100 USD, and a portion of the proceeds from each piece will be donated to the Neighborhood Nip Foundation, which aims to provide opportunities in music and more to LA-area youth.
