THE PUMA X ANIMAL CROSSING™: NEW HORIZONS COLLECTION COMES TO MALAYSIA
The time has come. Earlier last week we had talked about PUMA’s collab with Animal Crossing for a new collection of apparel and footwear featuring the hit video game.
The PUMA x Animal Crossing: New Horizons crossover takes cues from the beloved game; the collection’s streetwear silhouettes are reimagined with natural colors and authentic graphics from the fun franchise. The resulting collaboration is ready for anything, with styles for both adults and kids, including some of PUMA’s most distinctive shoe silhouettes, Suede, Wild Rider, and Future Rider.
PUMA’s famous Suede styled footwear would be the headline piece i would say, featuring a beige hairy suede upper, triple formstrip with printed graphics on the top layer, translucent sole with graphic imprint, tongue label with debossed co-branding, a leaf hangtag, and a canvas lace bag inspired by the bell bag with additional laces.
The Wild Rider silhouette is inspired by the movement and motion of city life. The collab version has a beige nylon upper adorned with an Animal Crossing resident print with green, blue, and sand suede overlays, a translucent formstrip on the side, an embroidered leaf on the heel and a debossed lace tag with PUMA’s logo.
The pack is not complete without the Future Rider. Constructed with nylon, canvas and suede overlays, this silhouette features a debossed leaf graphic on the heel, taken directly from the iconic Animal Crossing logo. The side TPU piece includes a graphic which alludes to the game’s design elements, as well as the canvas lace bag with additional laces to customize your look.
Your island escape wouldn’t be complete without some sharp adventure-ready outfits; short and long sleeve tees, hoodies, shorts, and sweatpants all in the signature color palette of the game, in addition to spotlighting some of its most well-known residents and elements. Just don’t forget your boarding pass.
The new PUMA x Animal Crossing: New Horizons Collection, retails from RM179 – RM579 starting September 18th 2021 at the PUMA Mid Valley store, PUMA Tropicana Garden store, PUMA Paradigm JB store, ATMOS KL (Mid Valley), and SoleWhat (The Gardens).
What we think
It seems that PUMA really paid a lot of attention to Animal Crossings’ aesthetics and design language, nailing the pastel tones and colorways to a tee! We should be getting our hands on them soon enough 😉
