Bairro Alto , 7pm
Puma and Mihara Yasuhiro, a famous Japanese designer, worked one more time together to create a beautiful collection for the F/W 07/08.
Inspired by fiction and humanoid creatures (it doesn’t sound so nice, but it is!) this futuristic collection has an unfinished look and is a sublimation of details; the tube shapes in the sneaker’s soles and the metallic leathers (silver and gold) represent the concepts of displayed wires and basic mechanisms.
Besides all this, there was the book’s (PUMA by Mihara Yasuhiro) launch; a connection between art and photography made in collaboration with four Japanese contemporary artists, which celebrates the several years in which Puma and Mihara Yasuhiro worked together (this book is a sort of visual archive of all the sneakers designed by Mihara for Puma – since the MY-1 until the MY-27).
