Nipsey Hussle – Release Date For Puma Collaboration Announced
Nipsey Hussle’s forthcoming Puma capsule collection is underway. The late rapper’s The Marathon Clothing brand shared details on the collaboration, noting that Nipsey had been working on the project before his death. The announcement reads:
Our team is proud to announce that our first collaborative capsule with @puma drops on September 5th 2019. 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. His signature style and DNA can be found in each garment that’s part of this collection from the khaki suit to the tracksuit. 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. 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.
Nipsey was tragically shot and killed on March 31, 2019, outside his store “Marathon Clothing” in South Los Angeles. His family recently announced plans to continue to honor his memory and contributions to music and Los Angeles.
