PUMA and streetwear powerhouse EN Noir debut a Spring collaboration designed for the nocturnal among us. Having been rooted in blurring the lines between street and high fashion, En Noir creates a capsule that brings a dark attitude to two PUMA silhouettes.
The new PUMA IGNITE evoKNIT En Noir features the famed IGNITE foam and cuffed upper, but is brought new life with black-on-black coloring and details. The capsule also features an updated classic with the PUMA Clyde Fleur de Lis En Noir that incorporates the mark for French loyalty, the iconic fleur-de-lis.
Both footwear iterations are inspired by the unusual work schedule of En Noir creator Rob Garcia. “The authentic and provoking footwear collaboration is rooted in a dark aesthetic. Most people know the phrase ‘Carpe Diem’ meaning seize the day, but for En Noir, all things come alive at night.” says Garcia of the bold streetwear styles. Stitched on each shoe is the saying ‘Carpe Noctum,’ meaning ‘Seize The Night,’ and highlights how Rob and team primarily work and create in the darkness.
