Six months into his stint as the creative director for PUMA’s Formula 1 partnership, and following on from his inaugural collection at the collaboration’s helm last November, A$AP Rocky is returning to the track to deliver his second motorsport collection in the visionary’s chair.

A full head-to-toe lineup, the range builds on the expressive codes Flacko established in his first output by “leveraging performance materials” and fueling them with a distressed flair, mimicking the aftermath of a day spent working in the garage.

Among the standouts, the line features a sweatsuit that emulates the fit of a racing suit, with an all-over distressed print and elastic ribbing at the hem. The Seatbelt T-shirt, meanwhile, adopts a graphic that resembles a six-point seatbelt on a heavyweight cotton construction with a boxy fit. Knitted balaclavas take after those worn under drivers’ helmets, while padded iterations take inspiration from the helmets themselves. XL gloves, decorated with heat maps printed in silicone, are finished with co-branded badges from the team-up.

Rounding out the lineup, Rocky has revealed the first footwear offering under his creative reign: a reissue of the Inhale OG. The silhouette was created in 2000 as a running shoe and has since received several makeovers under the PUMA banner. Rocky’s version comes in the sneaker’s original “Summer Melon” colorway.

“This Miami collection aims to give fans the chance to have their own race suit from the helmet down to the shoes,” said Rocky in a statement. “Other sports have uniforms available for the consumer and I wanted to bring that to the F1 category. For the visuals, I wanted to demonstrate how as adults we can lose sight of the dreams and imagination that we had as kids, and really love how it all came together.”

A$AP Rocky’s latest PUMA collection will be available to purchase in U.S. beginning May 3 at 10 a.m. ET via PUMA’s webstore. The line will also be up for grabs at the Miami Grand Prix on Saturday, May 4, in a pop-up located at 2129 NW 1ST CT in Wynwood. Prices range from $75 USD to $240 USD. Take a look at the range in the gallery above.
