Get the Look: PUMA x RHUIGI Part 2

March 9, 2023

An epic pairing deserves an encore ─ PUMA and Rhuigi have just released the second part of their limited-edition capsule that celebrates Americana classics. A coast-to-coast collaboration bridging from LA to NYC, items from the collection served as inspiration for today’s outfits, all dressed up in nostalgic fashion references and iconic Americana additions.

The Shoes


Framing itself around American varsity and specifically drawing inspiration from the bustling big city that never sleeps, for footwear the collab offers a fresh take on the PUMA Slipstreams. This updated rendition is a star player in the second outfit, with a mixture of off-white leather and suede completed by subtle green detailing. Its rather chunky silhouette and fat rope laces give a wholesome, nostalgic feel to the classic sneaker.

The Outfit(s)


Celebrating the melting pot of urban culture and rich diversity that is NYC, all while infusing Rhuigi Villaseñor’s unique design commentary on West Coast culture and freshness, this second part of the capsule collection features three incredibly well-executed items in a timeless green and cream color scheme. Paying homage to the fashion of the Big Apple and varsity athletics, we’ve styled two looks that blend concepts of Americana classics and contemporary street style trends.


The first look revolves around the dark green Varsity Jacket from the drop. The ideal statement piece for urban spring looks, it features the words ‘New York Worldwide’ splashed on a patch on the back, and a sweet reminder that ‘The World is Yours’ in yellow embroidery on the breast. Button-up closure on the front plays with contrasting detailing on the shoulders. Overall, the relaxed cut gives a nonchalant edge to the look. Beneath comes a soft cream long-sleeve dress with an asymmetrical hemline to add interest for the eye. Then, to give a bit more shape to the look, a black leather corset top with zip-up closure is worn over the dress and under the jacket, just barely peeking through.


At the core of the second outfit comes the comfy college-style sweatshirt with a relaxed fit and double layering design from the line. The soft off-white echoes tones in the Slipstreams, while allowing the dark green details of the sweatshirt to pop out. Branding is more minimal on this piece ─ just an RR patch and some subtle tags on the wrist. Sticking to this colour scheme, a pair of almond beige wide-leg trousers are up next, with a cheeky shoelace drawstring at the waist for a subtle subversion from the norm. Up top, a washed-out denim jacket is an American staple, the iteration selected here refreshed with quadruple pocket detailing. Nostalgic and modern, the entire look is wholesome but still contemporary.

The Accessories


For the first outfit, a blatant celebration of all things America comes in the form of this red, white and blue horizontal striped shoulder bag.</span< The distressed effect goes with the edgy vibes of the rest of the look while still celebrating the nationalist roots. Gold jewellery finishes things off: a delicate recycled gold necklace with a green pendant and matching drop earrings add a note of elegance and cohesion by matching the green tones in the varsity jacket.


On the other side, things are kept very clean and simple. Running with the varsity motif, a backpack was the obvious accessory ─ here we’ve gone with an asymmetrical dark green item tying in to the hem of the dress and the colouring that runs throughout. A pair of gold shades with green lens is an effortlessly chic finishing touch.

Wholesome and wholly cool, the latest drop from the PUMA and Rhuigi capsule encapsulates the evolution of Americana. Paying homage to the varsity athlete aesthetic and rich with cultural references alluding to the atmosphere of the Big Apple, the new items are just in time for your fresh spring styling.
