Earlier this month Australian clothing brand Coogi x Puma premiered their collaboration with a launch party at “Island Eats” Restaurant Battery Harris in Brooklyn.
The collaboration not only includes pairs of limited edition “Puma Clyde” sneakers but other pieces like hats and t-shirts. The launch party fell days before Notorious B.I.G’s birthday; after all the style was fashioned after rap icon Biggie Smalls and his love for Coogi knitwear.
The event included models sporting the new pieces, with a decor modeled after a 90s style bodega. Apart from the delicious eats and drinks, from elote to Hennessy cocktails, DJs like DJ Clark Kent spun tunes all night long. Of course, including many hits from Biggie, which prompted break dancing and other dances from back in the day!
No event is complete without a curated photo booth. Coogi x Puma models posed with attendees while showing off the collection. In addition to the photo booth you were also able to take a Polaroid photo and add it to a photo wall, truly bringing back the 90s vibe.
The new collection features also features knitwear, worn as a hoodie or dress. The Clyde sneakers comes in two designs, one with an all over Coogi print and another black with the print within the side panel.
The collection is available online and in stores. Items start at $45 for hats and sneakers range from $120-$200 depending on your style. The pair with the all over Coogi print includes 18k gold plated eyelets and other accents that definitely make them pop! See all pieces from the collection here!
