PUMA is continuing its collaborative efforts with the late Nipsey Hussle. Brand and Marketing Global Director Adam Petrick recently announced the news at the Wall Street Journal’s Future of Everything Festival.
During a panel with G-Eazy, one of PUMA’s celebrity endorsers, Petrick explained how they pick the people who represent their brand. As they got on the topic of Hussle, he narrated the story of how they had gotten together for a partnership. “He was somebody that was doing great stuff, and he had this idea about how he could improve the community and how he could push for that,” he said. “The concept of working with Nipsey just made sense.”
Prior to his death last March, Nipsey announced that PUMA and his brand The Marathon Clothing have created a collaborative collection that will drop in Fall 2019. He had already been an active endorser of the footwear giant, appearing in several campaigns for the RS-X “Trophies” and the PUMA x Coogi line.
