Regarding shaking up the style game on and off the court, few collaborations promise to be as electric as the recently unveiled PUMA x LaFrancé Collection. Crafted in partnership with NBA sensation LaMelo Ball and his lifestyle brand LaFrancé, which already has a strong following in the streetwear and sportswear realms, this collection is basically what happens when French elegance crash-lands in a sci-fi movie.
Forget what you thought you knew about traditional athletic apparel. This collection turns the dial up to eleven, blending high-fashion elements with a playful, otherworldly flair. It takes cues from classic French floral patterns but makes them fresh and futuristic with an unexpected palette of fluorescent slime and alien claw marks.
The highlight of the collection has to be its footwear styles, which come in two tantalizing flavors: the limited edition MB.03 LaFrancé, which leans into the athletic side of things, and the RS-XL LaFrancé, which offers a more laid-back lifestyle feel. But the innovation doesn't stop there. The apparel lineup is chock-full of graphic tees, hoodies, shorts, and jogger pants, all adorned with the iconic fleur-de-lis graphics, giving each piece that unique blend of old-world charm and new-age spunk.
And here's the kicker: this whole style saga is surprisingly accessible. With price points ranging from $40 to $125, owning a piece of this collection won't require you to break the bank. Set to drop on October 6th, you can snag your favorites online at PUMA.com.
