  • The Classic Boris Becker OG, R2499, Shelflife
    Keep an eye out on twitter @PUMASouthAfrica and pumaselect.co.za for further details.

Puma’s bringing back the classic Boris Becker OG, a timeless tennis sneaker that the 17-year old Becker himself wore during his famous and groundbreaking Wimbledon win in ’85. Featuring an all white leather finish and bright red Formstripe, the Boris Becker OG is the epitome of Puma’s tennis heritage.

Made for the court and loved on the streets, I would definitely want to add a pair to my Puma archive. Only a limited number of pairs will be available in SA at Shelflife stores with more coming in 2015.

A RETROSPECTIVE

Regarded as one of the most influential and controversial artists of the postwar era, Jeff Koons, is having his first major museum presentation in New York at the Whitney Museum of Art. His elevation of kitsch and the appropriation of tacky images and objects culled from popular culture contributed to his unexpected and swift rise to the top of the art world. He is also the 1st artist to almost fill the entirety of the Whitney’s Marcel Breuer building.

If you happen to find yourself in New York, this is an exhibition you should definitely pay a visit, if not, see more of his work HERE.

Introducing the collection on November 6, this accessible collaboration between Alexander Wang and H&M will definitely have H&M stores swamped. This partnership marks the first time that an American designer teams up with H&M. With nothing more than this teaser video below to go by, we’ll all have to wait with patience for more news to come. It goes without saying that I would want this entire collection in my wardrobe. If only!
