PUMA has teamed up with New York City illustrator, creator and designer Sophia Chang to offer an exclusive collection for the second half of 2014, inspired by Brooklyn and its iconic imagery.
Born and raised in Queens, New York, Chang graduated from the prestigious Parsons School of Design. Her pro-activity led her to a series of internships and freelance design projects, now embodied in an impressive portfolio. Growing up amongst the hustle and bustle of New York City, Chang draws inspiration from its vibrant street life and pop culture, as well as a love of hip-hop music, which developed at an early age.
The PUMA x Sophia Chang collection is a 360-degree range for men and women. The theme for the collection is Brooklyn and its iconic imagery such as the Brooklyn Bridge. It is characterised by black and white pattern graphics and Chang’s signature illustrations of New York City skylines.
PUMA x Sophia Chang is available at PUMA Select stores in in Bree Street, Cape Town and in Braamfontein, Johannesburg; as well as X-Trend Store, Dip Store, Queens, Brands Unlimited, Shelflife and Lost Property from September.
