PUMA together with German streetwear brand FLGNTLT are celebrating an exciting crossover between car culture and Japanese motorsport with a new Autumn Winter 22 collection titled “Evolution Super Series”.
Inspired by the iconic liveries emblazoned on mid-90s and early 2000s Japanese National GT race cars; such as the 1996 PUMA GTO N1 Taikyu which raced in the Suzuka 1000km, and the 2000 PUMA Lancer EVO VI Super Taikyu run by the Test & Service Team. The exciting new collection creates an instantly recognizable aesthetic to fans of Japanese Domestic Market – JDM – endurance racing.
While the collection’s graphics and colour tones are deeply rooted in the Japanese endurance racing scene, it also celebrates PUMA’s long-standing history in motorsport as a proud sponsor of some of the era’s most recognizable racing teams and machines. Translating this incredible racing legacy to the street; the Evolution Super Series collection features carefully curated pieces of outer- and inner-wear apparel, as well as three different choices of footwear.
The outer-wear lineup consists of the PUMA x FLGNTLT Corduroy Jacket, and PUMA x FLGNTLT relaxed fit pants – which combine a street style with workwear-inspired elements. Fans can also choose from three colourways of the PUMA x FLGNTLT Hoodie (black, cream, green), while the PUMA x FLGNTLT T-shirt lineup is available in black, cream, green and blue.
What’s more, the PUMA x FLGNTLT Evolution Super Series features three choices of footwear – each specially tailored to match the collection’s racing-inspired style. The PUMA FLGNTLT Slipstream INVDR takes the key features of a classic basketball silhouette sneaker and redefines them with fresh streetwear cues and dynamic lines. The PUMA FLGNTLT Speedfusion sneaker combines an innovative sporting shape with a classic motorsport style while incorporating classic Japanese racing-inspired design cues. A relaxed option after the chequered flag has dropped is also available with the PUMA FLGNTLT Leadcat 2.0 Slides.
