Show Love – Puma x MCM Slipstream Lo

German luxury fashion brand MCM and iconic sportswear brand PUMA have collaborated on a second installment, bringing us back to old-school basketball – bridging luxury and sport.

It’s the love affair between luxury and sport that has fascinated Heiko Desens, PUMA’s Global Creative Director. He wanted to highlight the classic details of both German brands in the design and construction. Dubbed “Show Love,” a coranded Slipstream Lo marks the first of the series and features brown, gold, and white makeup with MCM Visetos Monogram. Early 2023 will see the final drop, a reimagined take on the TRC Blaze Court.

These sneakers are true to it’s sizing, and have a soft furry interior that keeps your feet soft and comfortable, and the colour combination would make your outfit pop. Basketball isn’t just a sport – it’s a lifestyle.

The MCM x PUMA Slipstream Lo releases September 8 via MCM and September 10 via PUMA and select retailers for approximately $492 USD.  Stay tuned for drop details on future releases from the collaborators.

The MCM x PUMA Slipstream Lo is gifted from Puma Australia. #PumaAuPartner

PUMA x Boris Becker Lifestyle Launch 2015

Last night I was invited to PUMA x BORIS BECKER Lifestyle Launch (#pumatennis) 2015 on 524 Flinders Street where Boris Becker relaunched his trademark red and white trainers he wore in 1985 when he was only 17 years old! This trendy venue were also filled with Melbourne’s well known fashionistas (Jess Dempsey from What Would Karl Do, Dasha and Colin from the Trendspotter, Gemma Watts from Coutouring), musos, magazine editors; and the most coolest display of PUMA trainers and details like old-school tennis racquets, fake-grass tennis court, and the Social Playground Photobooth.

The biggest highlight of-course was meeting my childhood tennis player, Boris Becker who looked super relaxed and casual in his blue jacket over a monochrome polo shirt with dark denim, and red and white trainers. I must admit, I couldn’t recognise him at first because it’s been so long ago, but it was inspiring to learn that he’s still active in the Tennis Sporting industry – the current tennis coach to Novak Djokovic! I’m just glad he brought back his red and white trainers, because it just goes well with anything from streetwear and, if you are daring like me… tee them with culottes, long pants, dress which I saw a lot of when I was at New York Fashion Week!

Anyway these trainers are available at Platypus so get your hands on a pair because I’m sure I’ll be wearing mine at Fashion Week!
