Puma's designer June Ambrose made his debut runway show as creative director for the brand at New York Fashion Week on Thursday with the theme "Futrogade", showcasing Puma's past, present and future.
How to pull off Usain Bolt's suit, sneakers look from Puma fashion show
All eyes were on Olympic Gold medalist Usain Bolt on the runway, not only was he a man on a mission to 'slow down' and enjoy the moment, Bolt rocked the suit and trainers outfit that has inspired fashion lovers.
The look and outfit
Bolt was the picture of confidence and swagger in a smart tuxedo that was emblazoned with the Puma logo. However, what stands out about the suit is the sweat-pant finish design to the pants that start at the waist with the classic tuxedo design. The jacket was also given the same treatment at the wrists with a sweat-shirt finish.
Kudos to Ambrose for making it that the sweats-finish did not dress down the suit. The actual dress down was done with a pair of black Puma sneakers. Bolt finished his runway appearance with his signature track move which got the audience cheering at the display.
How to pull off the look
Perhaps it is not about how to put this outfit together, but when to pull it off.
If you have a trusted tailor, you are in luck because all they have to do is develop it from the ground up to fit.
With the angel wings flow in the back, the outfit is a fashion statement.
Keep it for high-end socialite events such as fashion and design, prom parties and others where there's limited movement and minimal activity.
Forego the wings for an evening out, dinner, work event, theme party, house party.
However, you don't want to make an appearance at a wedding, concert, or church in this outfit.
Keep it away from dates, night at the bar, formal gatherings, family gatherings.
When asked about his experience on the runway, Bolt said it was good despite not being used to walking slow.
"It's definitely different walking this slow. I was just following all the models. They said 'slow it down, enjoy the moment,' so I did just that. It’s not my first time, but it’s been a long time, I’m much more confident, it was pretty good,” he said.
The theme celebrated the worlds of fashion, music and sports.
