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?
