In a rather enticing collaborative project, lifestyle e-publication Hypebeast teams up with Puma to convey the distinct food culture in Hong Kong with “The Dim Sum Project”, featuring the legendary Puma Blaze of Glory in both the original and newer LTWT model. With two pieces included in this partnership, Hypebeast selects two of the most distinguished pieces of the weekend food fare – Har Gao (shrimp dumplings) and Siu Mai (pork dumplings) – to create some awesome cultural colorways of the two Puma pieces. Get ready to whet your appetites because a release is coming sooner than you think – May 8th at the Hypebeast online store, followed by an Asia-Pacific drop on May 10th and another global release on May 17th.
