Mario Balotelli swaps pitch for studio to front the Fall/Winter 15 collab between long term creative companions PUMA & BAPE.

The Italian striker is installed as the face of the new co-branded range that merges the iconic lifestyle traits of the two brands. BAPE's famed camouflage print meets PUMA's sportswear touch in a collection that boasts distinct designs on both footwear and clothing, including R698 & Disc Blade updates and FC Bape football jerseys as PUMA maintain a football element.

Some description

The two brands have complimented each other on numerous previous occasions including a creative edition of the evoSPEED 1.2 football boot and the latest project swings from streetwear to pitchwear using football socks, headbands, tees and hoodies. The PUMA x BAPE FW15 collection drops on Nov 28 in BAPE stores and at select retailers from Dec 12.
