Prints, prints and some more prints…that’s what it is all about when it comes to print and fashion house SWASH London and we’re stepping up the prints game with our latest basketball inspired collection.
Renowned for its hand-drawn and painted digital print, SWASH duo Sarah Swash and Toshio Yamanaka have injected bold and whimsical prints into some of our most iconic styles for this unorthodox collection…yet it is exactly what you would expect from the Yamanakas.
Delving deep into the unexpected, the collection is based on “things lost and found” including skeletons, antique jewelry and other hidden treasures. As always the styles remain streetwear-ready and true to both brands - the blending of premium prints, cutting edge tech and handcrafted designs with classic PUMA styles, perfectly represents both brands’ unique DNA.
The PUMA x SWASH footwear illustrates the inspiration behind the collection thanks to the bold application of prints to some of PUMA’s most classic shoes. The Blaze of Glory (R2 299), originally known for its athletic construction demonstrates a playful and artistic theme in all over SWASH Ossuary design paired with a mellow, soft leather strike.
While the States Mid (R2 999) features SWASH Samovar, a unique hand drawn and painted design featuring bold and lavish, intricate patterns with an upper constructed from rich leather. Finally, the States (R2 699) has been given an equally bold SWASH treatment with an embellished Toucan design in jewel colour print.
The apparel builds on the basketball theme with the unisex Varsity Jacket (R10 999) featuring soft lambskin sleeves, side pockets and custom badges and the eye-catching Samovar print runs true to SWASH’s design ethos – you’ll never need another leather jacket…The unisex Basketball Tank (R899) has an allover Samovar pattern and loose fit for a true basketball feel and a perfect court/street look.
Check out Nomzamo getting her SWASH on…yes, because that’s how we roll.
