PUMA x SWASH footwear collection demonstrates the playful and artistic theme of this collaboration, taking classic designs and filling them with a newfound life. The Blaze of Glory, an icon, known for its athletic construction, is given the trademark SWASH treatment. Their Blaze of Glory is made bolder and brighter with fascinating and beautifully coloured prints. As well as this, the XT2+ Trinomic undergoes a similar reinvention taking on bold and intricate patterns true to SWASH London’s design ethos.
