This Stylish New Collaboration Ups the Ante on Athleisure

March 6, 2019 Style By

No shortage of designers has tried to fill the massive amount of gray space between function-forward workout clothes and stylish, everyday sportswear. The void we call athleisure is filled with things that aren’t quite even mixtures of Column A and Column B (technical dress shirts, at the end of the day, just look like dress shirts), because that mix is really hard to nail.

Luckily, a new collaboration between Porsche Design and Puma seems to have struck such a balance. The offering, which includes everything from a polyamide mid layer hoodie whose graphic black lines evoke a baja poncho to a water-repellent parka that’s as sleek as it is durable, is made for function without sacrificing style. Even the collection’s backpack, which other brands have treated as a throwaway, is engineered for ergonomics.
