Neymar Jr. and Puma will be linking up for the star’s first lifestyle collection with the brand. This Neymar Jr. x Puma Lifestyle Collection celebrates his life’s journey from São Vicente to Paris. The collection includes a range of footwear, including PUMA’s newest Wild Rider franchise, apparel pieces like hoodies, bombers, tees and cargo pants, plus a selection of accessories, beanies, caps and a backpack.
As a co-creator of the collection the pieces feature meaningful graphics inspired by his origins in Brazil. The lifestyle collection tells Neymar Jr.’s history through its graphics, the coordinates are from São Vicente, his hometown in Brazil. The word “Blessed” which he has tattooed on his back serves as a centerpiece for the collection, using the word throughout the items feels special to him, as it’s a word that describes gratitude and how he feels about his life and career. The designs even include one of his favorite phrases that really speaks to his own life mantra, “It’s not always all about being the best or the greatest but instead, to inspire future generations.”
“They really listened to me and understood what story I want to tell, since this is inspired by my past and who I am as a person, not as a football player. We exchanged ideas about design and the details we integrated into the collection. I was well involved, and they really understood what I wanted to share.” – Neymar Jr.
Ranging from $35 – $110, the PUMA x Neymar Jr. collection comes in a muted color palette of black and light gray with yellow accents, and will drop on PUMA.com, at the PUMA NYC Flagship store, and select retailers starting September 30 .
