This season, the German fashion luxury house of MCM is teaming up with titan sportswear conglomerate PUMA to bring a slam dunk to high-end fashion - doing full justice to the all-American game. In true showboating style, the PUMA x MCM collaboration celebrates all the raucous glamor that basketball has to offer, featuring the PUMA Slipstream Lo.

The two industry giants are an obvious fit for this thrilling commemoration, having worked together in 2018 to release a special edition of PUMA’s iconic Suede. This time the teamwork is even more ambitious, with the PUMA x MCM range seeking to capture the charisma and exhilaration of all thing’s basketball – and what’s more, basketball superstar-in-the-making Mikey Williams has been recruited as a triple-double for the global campaign.

Heiko Desens, PUMA’s Global Creative Director shared, “The love affair between luxury and sport is clear in this second collaboration we’ve created with MCM, the classic details of both German brands are visible in the design and construction. The first time we worked together was an instant success, I’m certain that it will happen again and that everyone will be excited about what’s to come.”
