Nipsey Hussle’s Collaboration With Puma Drops Next Month
Nipsey Hussle's long-awaited collaboration with Puma is finally on the way.
Last night (Aug. 19), Nipsey's estate used his Instagram account to announce that his Puma collection is set to drop on Sept. 5. There's no confirmation on what the capsule will consist of, but the lengthy caption does ensure that "his signature style and DNA can be found in each garment that’s part of this collection from the khaki suit to the tracksuit."
"Our team is proud to announce that our first collaborative capsule with Puma drops on September 5th 2019," the announcement begins. "Nipsey spearheaded this project from concept to final product over the course of last year, flying to meetings, reviewing samples, bringing in material references he liked, and most importantly ensuring that it reflected his style authentically with no compromise. Each detail from logo placement, fit, colorways, and materials was thoughtfully done."
Before his tragic death in March, Nipsey Hussle first revealed his intentions with the clothing company when he posted a video of him signing the contract. In his caption, the "Hussle and Motivate" rapper told his followers how excited he was for the endorsement, and promised that the first collection would be out by Fall 2019. Now, it seems like Nipsey's family and Puma are making sure that they live up to Nipsey's promise.
"This project is very special to our team and we’re handling it with the utmost care to ensure it’s delivered exactly as Nipsey envisioned it," the statement continues. "It’s a privilege for us to honor his commitment and carry out this project for people to receive a personally curated collection by Nip Hussle Tha Great."
The collaboration will be out before the completion of the Nipsey Hussle Tower in L.A.
