Rising R&B superstar Paloma Fordkicked off New York Fashion Week 2022 with a unique, one-night-only music showcase on September 7 at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, New York, in partnership with UnitedMastersand Crown Royal Apple via their renowned ‘Breakout Sessions’ series. The R&B maven curated a melody of hits from her previous bodies of work, Nearly Civilized (2016), X Tapes (2020), and teased a preview of new music she is slated to release for her next body of work X Tapes II.
“It’s always a magical moment when you perform and see people singing with you, feeling the same emotions. Nothing compares to it. That’s what we do this for; human connection.” – Paloma Ford
The musical arrangement for the night, supported by background vocalist Dazmin Laster and guitarist Dennis Lorenzo, started with a refreshing performance of her breakout hit “Do It Again” as she led into tracks from X Tapes, including fan-favorite “Heartbreak on the Westside.” Without surprise, Paloma also performed her latest sizzling hit, “Bentley Truck,” which arrived a few short months ago and received recognition on Apple Music playlist(s) ‘New in R&B,’ ‘Brown Sugar’; Amazon Music’s ‘Brand New Music,’ Fresh R&B,’ Breakthrough R&B’ playlists + more. The momentous set was concluded with a preview of a new track, rumored to appear on X Tapes II, “Where Did You Go.”
On the fashion sector, Paloma was styled in a full all-white look from emerging designer TDionne to start off the night. Shortly after, Paloma made her way to Diesel styled in a complete look of their latest collection as she commenced NYFW. While in town Paloma is set to support an array of presentations, including Tia Adeola, No Sesso, Kim Shui, PUMA and more. The relationship with Tia Adeola has gone on to be a special relationship for Paloma that started when she walked as a model for Tia’s debut show in 2019. Since then, Paloma has become a natural muse for the brand, starring in Tia’s fashion film ‘Black Is Beautiful, which premiered via Vogue in 2020 and more.

BTS Generates Millions of Impressions for New Louis Vuitton Collection, K-Pop Stars Have Become Fashion’s Most Powerful Influencers
Louis Vuitton’s new partnership with K-Pop superstars BTS proves the band has a monumental impact on every brand they touch. Louis Vuitton designer Virgil Ablog surprised the world this morning with the release of a spin-off fashion walk film named “Hope,” dedicated to his fall/winter 2021 menswear collection modeled by the world’s biggest boyband. Earlier this year, BTS became LV house ambassadors and have been advocating for the monogrammed pieces ever since.
The film marks their first big showcase for the brand. Directed by Jeon Gowoon and Park Syeyoung, each member presents a new look designed by Abloh as they navigate through an industrial space filled with Vuitton models, and a seemingly endless maze of staircases. Because this is their first official high-fashion collaboration (previously only with athletic brands such as Puma and Fila), the BTS fanbase ARMY was absolutely geeking out on Twitter.
Thanks to their appearance in Louis Vuitton’s #LVMenFW21 fashion show in Seoul, where members of the group modelled the new collection, social media posts featuring BTS accounted for 9 of the top 10 most engaged fashion-related posts in the past week. BTS-related LV posts generated 5M interactionsfor the brand in just 7 days, compared to less than 400K mentions for all non-BTS mentions of LV in the same period.
The dominant influence of K-Pop is just one of many surprising trends that has changed the way consumers engage with fashion and beauty brands over the past year. The latest Fashion & Beauty Industry Report from consumer intelligence platform, Talkwalker, reveals how apparel and cosmetics brands are adapting to the latest changes in post-pandemic consumer behavior, from the rise of athleisure culture to the resilience of makeup tutorials as a content cornerstone even during the work-from-home era.
“Whether people are working from home or in the office, how they look and feel remains a consistent topic of online conversation. What’s changed is who people look to for their sense of style and self,” said Todd Grossman, CEO of Talkwalker Americas. “K-Pop stars like BTS have shown a tremendous ability to excite fans to engage with brands on a seismic level, bringing far more attention to a legacy brand than it could otherwise generate on its own.”

PUMA surprises with a new style to its popular Rider franchise, the Wild Rider. Neymar Jr’s favorite new shoe off-pitch was inspired by the movement and motion of city life.
PUMA ambassador Neymar Jr. is always pushing himself forward, making the Wild Rider the perfect shoe for his first major lifestyle campaign with PUMA. Not only is he known for his accolades on the pitch, but his style off the pitch also draws a lot of interest. As someone who is changing the game, he embodies the theme of the shoe, made to celebrate youth culture and mobility.
“As someone who loves streetwear, I was thrilled when PUMA approached me about being the face of a shoe outside of football,” said Neymar Jr. “You won’t take the Wild Rider off; I’ve been wearing it non-stop. É o meu favorito!”
This Wild Rider brings a whole new dimension to the Rider family, with fresh layers of material and futuristic circles at the midsole. Its premium design is inspired by the movement and motion of city life – always going forward, further, faster, and beyond.
“We consider the Rider family to be very much a constant evolving conversation; what started the Future Rider, which was very much linked to the Easy Rider II, has progressed into something that can stand on its own without being too obvious to the original inspiration,” says Danny Taylor, Design Lead Sportstyle Footwear. “With each release we are able to push the Rider product language forward, constantly evolving it season by season.”
The Wild Rider continues to play with PUMA’s futro design language. Taking archive inspiration from the Rider OG and elements from a ‘90s track spike, the design is a ‘collage’ of past and future melted together. The progressive design language of the Wild Rider includes unique design finishes like a formstrip that flows into a heel pull, “Designed by PUMA” emblazoned across the back, and the back of heel also juts out from a futro inspired accent, further playing on the idea of motion that serves as inspiration for the shoe. This drop features a nylon upper with suede overlays and a leather formstrip, along with TPU details on eyelet and heel and the signature Rider foam.
PUMA SIGNS WNBA SUPERSTAR BREANNA STEWART TO GROUNDBREAKING DEAL
PUMA and Breanna Stewart make history; partnership to include signature shoe
Global sports company PUMA has signed a long-term, groundbreaking partnership with WNBA MVP and Champion Breanna Stewart “Stewie.” The superstar athlete will serve as a brand ambassador both on and off the court and will play a vital role in helping grow PUMA’s business, by collaborating and creating products including a signature shoe.
“I am proud to join the PUMA family,” said Breanna Stewart. “We share a vision to grow the sport and welcome everyone – specifically women and girls – globally. The genuine investment PUMA has shown to collaborate with and activate around women, including the commitment to a signature performance shoe, is something that I hope serves to raise the expectations and standards of the generations of basketball players who follow me.”
Stewart has set a new standard throughout her career, including being the only player of any gender to win four consecutive NCAA Championships and a four-time Most Outstanding Player during her time at the University of Connecticut, being the first overall pick in the 2016 WNBA Draft, celebrating a gold medal in the 2016 Summer Olympics and capping off last year’s WNBA season with her second Championship and Finals MVP.
Beyond the court, Stewart is known for advocacy work around equality and social justice, standing up for Black Lives Matter and the LGBTQ community. She also has embraced the opportunity to lend her support and give back to the community by investing in basketball development programs and donating to great organizations like the Black Future Lab.
“We are thrilled to welcome Breanna Stewart into our PUMA family,” said Adam Petrick, Global Director of Brand and Marketing for PUMA. “She embodies what it means to be a PUMA athlete with her on-court determination to her off-court activism for equality in all forms. We are excited to work together in many ways to not only be an advocate in the community but to also help grow the sport for women everywhere.”
Stewart also will be part of PUMA’s newest women’s platform “She Moves Us,” which celebrates women who move culture and sports forward and inspire other women around the world.
PUMA and creative artist collective KidSuper Studios are back for another football-inspired, co-branded collection, which is infused with boundless imagination and continues to explore KidSuper’s artistic and experimental way of thinking.
The PUMA x KidSuper Studioscollab boasts mix-and-match design elements and fun prints, and challenges the conventional look of a sneaker. Hook and loop closures, decorative zig-zag stitching, and embroidered branding are complemented by raw edges for a purposefully unfinished look. Inspired by founder and designer Colm Dillane’s unbridled love of football, the campaign images were shot with his favorite team–recent Copa Libertadores champions–Brazil’s Palmeiras. PUMA sponsored athletes Willian, Gabriel Veron, Weverton and Renan serve as the models for the collection.
Classic PUMA footwear styles are practically unrecognizable with the transformations in this collection. The RS-2K Slip-on is the standout piece, featuring the same camo inspired face print as the fleece top and pants, with a quilted upper. The Mirage Mox and Trailfox Boot get colorful transformations and feature unique aspects like stitched leather pieces on the collar to hold a pencil on the Trailfox, and tie dye laces on the Mirage Mox. The Ralph Sampson 70 offers a more subtle option, with a white leather upper and semi-translucent rubber overlay on the heel, KidSuper Studios embroidery on hook and loop straps, and an exposed foam edge on the formstrip and tongue.
Outfit yourself in a work of art when the PUMA x KidSuper collection drops on PUMA’s website, the PUMA NYC Flagship store and select retailers on March 20. Prices range from $60 to $160 for collection items.
