Hussein Chalayan’s output for Puma has been typified by ultra-sleek lifestyle designs with the occasional sculpted neck-breaker thrown in for good measure.  He’s avoided working with most of the German Cat’s popular silhouettes in favor of entirely new designs with the exception of that superb un-branded R698 Jogger from 2010, but here’s proof that he might want to reconsider that route.  The Hussein Chalayan x Puma Disc Blaze showed up at Project with a couple of heavily-ventilated designs featuring reworked Disc enclosures with the designer’s signature on the lateral side.  They’ve got a heat/pressure weld look that’s in line with some of the other adventurous Disc Blaze LTWT colorups on tap for next year; how do these compare to those earlier previews?

With today’s preponderance of hybrid sneaker designs, it’d only be natural to see the name of Hussein Chalayan‘s latest design for Puma and expect some kind of mashup.  And while the new Puma Urban Conflate was inspired by sailing and kite flying and seeks to capture the interplay of sport, motion and speed, they basically look like a Euro-sleek take on classic lowtop silhouettes like the Nike Bruin, adidas Gazelle and even a little of Puma’s own Roma.  No matter the background, this white leather lowtop is sure to turn heads with a metallic silver ‘foxing’ band, and you’ll find them available now at SNS.

Hussein Chalayan x Puma Haast Leather

Hussein Chalayan’s Puma designs might not attract the kind of mainstream attention as something like the Nike Air Yeezy 2, but there’s no doubting that the German Cat’s Creative Director is making his mark in the lifestyle sneaker market.  Not only can Kanye West’s latest Nike Sportswear collaboration be seen as influenced by the molded styling on Chalayan’s Urban Swift, but his latest pushes into a new territory with its unique collection of textures.  On paper, the Puma Haast Leather is just another grey and white sneaker during a period rife with neutral designs, but even the quickest glance reveals there’s a bit more going on with this one.  From the gradient perforations on the side panels to the scratchy epi leather-leaning texture on the rest, this is a model that doesn’t have all that many peers, and their unique sensibility is yours for the taking now from SNS.

Hussein Chalayan rose to prominence with some of the craziest dress designs this world has ever seen, but since taking on the role of Puma’s creative director, he’s offered some conspicuously subtle designs.  The latest in this collection is the Hussein Chalayan x Puma Gravity Low, a sleek lowtop whose classic running silhouette brings to mind images of the Reebok Classic series.  Tonal black, grey and navy colorways hide their Formstripes and add just a hint of the designer’s influence on the heel, and you can see images of all three pairs when you click on the jump below.  via HS

Have you ever looked at a sneaker and thought, “What I wouldn’t do for a design that reaches beyond the utility of its construction?!”  If so, you’re probably the kind of person who loves Jeremy Scott’s adidas Originals by Originals collaborations, and today another notable designer’s work with a major footwear brand pushes the footwear-as-art envelope a bit further.  The newest Puma Urban Swift lowtops by Hussein Chalayan take his typically tonal approach to a new level with molded spikes reaching out from the heel among the subtlest impetuses for “Oh my god, look at those!” we’ve ever seen.  This is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but they make us wonder how long it’ll be before ‘sneaker sculptures’ get even more complex.  Click through to see more and let us know what you think of Hussein Chalayan’s latest Puma Urban Mobility design.  via HB
