PUMA has partnered up with Australian brand COOGI for a limited-edition capsule that pays homage to hip hop.

Best known for their intricate knit designed sweaters using vibrant colors and premium materials. The brand gained attention in the 80's and 90's after numerous Hip Hop legends supported the brand in magazine covers, music videos and public appearances.

Who can forget the famous Biggie lines “However living better now COOGI sweater now.” the brand became a symbol of Hip Hop affluence. Now a Hip-Hop legacy brand, COOGI is still being featured in the rhymes and visuals of many younger hip hop artist such ASAP Rocky.
In this exciting throwback collab, the famous COOGI knit designs get reworked into classic PUMA pieces for a vibe that blends craftsmanship and athleticism in just the right proportions.

My favorite piece in the capsule is without a doubt PUMA’s iconic Leadcat. The Leadcat PUMA X COOGI, luxury slide, is the perfect combination of street style and sophistication especially as we prepare for spring and summer.

To complete the look the line includes PUMA x COOGI Romper and Tee and Short, for her. Boys get breezy with the PUMA x COOGI Archive Tank and pair it with the Bermuda Sweat Short.
The men’s PUMA x COOGI Tracksuit is available in black and iconic COOGI Australia fabric colour blocking along the top half of the track jacket, and shin and back yoke of the track pants. The PUMA x COOGI Box Logo Tee is available in white with a paradise blue PUMA x COOGI graphic.
You can find the Men’s tee all over Nipsey Hussle’s Instagram.
Throw your hands in the air if you’re feeling the PUMA x COOGI collection. Available at PUMA SELECT in Cape Town and Johannesburg from 31 August 2018.
