What’s better than one cat? Two cats, of course! And they’re finally out of the bag. Big cat PUMA joins forces with the iconic streetwear brand RIPNDIP and Lord Nermal the cat to bring a bold and playful collection to the Philippines and we’re stoked to get our hands on them! The new collaboration combines PUMA’s core silhouettes and RIPNDIP’s creative and provocative design aesthetic, resulting in a range of apparel, footwear, and accessories that are bound to turn heads.
At the heart of this exciting partnership lies the mischievous mascot of RIPNDIP, Lord Nermal the cat, who is known for his cheeky antics and distinctive presence in the world of streetwear and skateboarding. With flagship stores in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Tokyo, RIPNDIP has earned its reputation as one of the hottest hypebeast streetwear labels, and now it’s making waves in the Philippines.
A Riot of Playfulness and Creativity
The PUMA x RIPNDIP collection includes standout pieces like the Twill Shirt and Twill Pants, both featuring an eye-catching allover pattern adorned with RIPNDIP tags, the ever-frisky Lord Nermal, and flashy designs throughout. These cut-and-sew garments are perfect for those who want to make a bold statement with their style.
If you’re all about comfort, don’t worry; the collection also includes cozy essentials like a collaborative Hoodie and Sweatpants. Additionally, three unique Graphic T-shirts featuring custom designs created by PUMA and RIPNDIP are available for those looking to express their personality through their wardrobe. Some pieces even showcase Lord Nermal transforming into PUMA’s iconic cat logo, adding a unique twist to classic designs.
The footwear side of this collaboration is equally exciting. You can choose from two playful versions of the classic PUMA Suede and two additional takes on the Slipstream, all featuring mischievous depictions of Nerm that are sure to make a statement. For those looking for something different, the collaboration even includes PUMA’s take on a basecamp slipper, the Tuff Plus. With a range of options, you can find the perfect pair to complete your streetwear look.
Accessories are an essential part of any streetwear ensemble, and PUMA x RIPNDIP also has you covered. The collection features a backpack, cap, and beanie, all featuring Nerm peeking over the brim, adding a playful touch to your accessories game.
