Editor’s Notes: For its FW18 collection, PUMA has tapped Moscow-based fashion brand Outlaw to re-work traditional items and classic PUMA pieces for a relaxed collection. The drop includes a blend of apparel and footwear, making for a well-rounded capsule to amp up your fall wardrobe.
The imagery above is from Outlaw Moscow’s headquarters, where guests were invited to preview the collection and chat with the label’s founders and designers Dilyara Minrakhmanova and Maksim Bashkaev.
Clothing includes floral print kimonos, bomber jackets, bucket hats, and scarves. For your feet, PUMA and Outlaw Moscow have dropped the Avid Zip sneaker, and our personal favorite, the Trailfox Graphic.
The Trailfox takes on a different aesthetic, adopting colorways inspired by Russia, and arriving as a lifestyle-oriented takedown of the original shoe. Shot in South Africa, the images below give us a closer look at the footwear and clothing options.
Outlaw was founded by design duo Minrakhmanova and Bashkaevin in 2014 with the aim of fusing distinctive Russian design elements with the worlds of streetwear and luxury. As Bashkaev explained to Highsnobiety, “We implemented a flower print from the classic illustrations of famous 19th-century Russian painter [Ivan] Bilibin, who developed a neo-folk painting style in his illustrations.
“We actually designed the shoe from scratch, starting with just the sole. Now it’s hard to differentiate between the lifestyle aspects and the trail aspects. Later this July, we want to climb volcanos in the uninhabited peninsula of Kamchatka wearing our Trailfox shoes.”
Watch out for the PUMA x Outlaw Moscow collection, debuting July 14.
