The Weeknd is handling modeling duties in the lookbook for his latest PUMA x XO collection, which arrives right on time for the Fall/Winter 2018 season and offers a set of ’90s-inspired streetwear.
The “Homage to the Archive” theme plays out with the throwback sporty style seen throughout — a nod to the heyday of Polo Sport and Tommy Jeans. Color-blocking and bold prints are the focal point in the set of jackets, tracksuits, tees and even a “Pebble” colorway for the PUMA x XO Terrain included as well. Street racing and motorsports also play a part in the design story, like the logo-heavy sleeves on the shirts that pay homage to NASCAR racer jackets. The lookbook itself even has Abel and his crew looking like their own car club, complete with matching gear to represent the whole squad. The footwear portion is the real standout though, and the switch-up of the black sole in place of the usual white adds a slight difference that’s enough to balance out the beige suede of the upper.
The new PUMA x XO Fall/Winter 2018 collection by The Weeknd arrives on December 13 through flagship locations, select retailers across the globe, and online. See more of the Starboy below:
