My MANy Bags News #64

YSL x Puma Sneakers

This came as a HUGE elegant fashion house that is synonymous with french fashion has now teamed up with sportswear brand Puma for a pair of collaboration sneakers. Does it enhance the brand image or merely wears it down? It's up to you to decide. Meanwhile these suede and leather sneakers are now sold in YSL stores. And in US, sold exclusively on the brand's e-commerce site.

Not too surprising if you consider the fact that they're both owned by Gucci Group.

I can not seem to link the 2 brands together...they are like mars and venus...

YSL do not come across as a sporty brand:-)

anyways...the shoes are not that appealing:-) to be honest:-P

The McQueen ones are much more avant garde and exciting!

I agree Kevin. I'd rather go for McQueen or LANVIN.

Indeed..there is nothing really spectacular about the YSL design for this shoe.

Very un YSL.
