When someone is in your heart, they’re never truly gone. Best-selling author Mitch Albom said it best, and while the late Karl Lagerfeld passed away earlier this year, his legacy continues to inspire fashion hearts around. One of them is sportswear giant Puma, who has teamed up with the legendary designer’s eponymous brand for the second year in a row with another capsule collection that shows Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy is in the good hands of his fellow disciples. Featuring apparel including track suits, bomber jackets, wide leg pants, T-shirts as well as knit hats and waist bags, it’s an instant athleisure classic that pridefully flexes the Karl Lagerfeld mantle. And why wouldn’t it, especially given the fact that the name is a Bambi award-winning designer who also happens to have a prestigious LVMH prize named after him. But the stars of the show come in the form of their co-designed sneakers; Puma and Karl Lagerfeld released the Puma Cell and Alteration silhouettes, as well as the Puma Cali and Roma Amor, all with the bold touch of a capitalised ‘Karl Lagerfeld ’ on the sneakers’ midsole. Think rugged vibes, along with some Karl Lagerfeld-esque details of zips, pull tabs and extra chunky soles.
