Stomp into March with the new PUMA Suede XL

PUMA New Zealand’s latest drop is an enormous remix of the iconic Suede sneaker. Meet Suede XL, the sneaker elevating classic cool with disruptive dimensions.

PUMA’s larger-than-life Suede XL is inspired by the nostalgia of ‘90s and early 2000s skateboarding footwear. Heavily cushioned with exaggerated proportions, the Suede XL features a padded tongue and Formstrip, plus ultra-wide laces to further evoke the overstated aesthetics of Y2K skate culture. The supersized sneaker touches down in an “Electric Blue” colourway, with more to come later in 2024. Suede XL takes the Classic and blows it out of proportion with extra padding, a larger tongue, thick laces, and electrifying colour-ways. The results are a new street style must-have for trend-setters everywhere.

Maggie Marilyn’s latest collection is giving us all the nostalgic feels

Maggie Marilyn blooms into a new year with their latest Forever capsule, Where Wild Things Grow; a collection inspired by Mother Nature’s enduring capacity for change. The acclaimed womenswear brand points to Mother Nature’s blueprint for the lessons we might hope to impart on our children one day. This collection, Maggie’s first since she became pregnant with her son, is the culmination of the last seven years growing in the direction o fMaggie Marilyn’s North Star; a fashion industry rooted in transparency, circularity, regeneration and inclusion.“It’s been a journey that has stretched us beyond what we thought we were capable of, and has taught me the patience, grace and grit needed to step into this new chapter as a mother,” says Maggie Hewitt, Founder and Designer, Maggie Marilyn.

The first release of Where Wild Things Grow honours Hewitt’s own parents, the two people most responsible for giving her the courage of her convictions. Her mother’s beloved roses, in bloom again, this time in softlemon and powder blue. A cashmere sweater that takes its cues from the rugby jerseys worn by her father in his early twenties as a first-time dad. A deconstructed knit, affectionately named Better With Age, that resembles the old family sweaters with threads pulled and frayed hems from climbing trees with her sisters against their better judgement. Garments that pay tribute to a childhood best remembered for its adventures and Mother Nature’s spoils, while looking to the future through fabrics and silhouettes designed to lift their wearer up. Being a brand that doesn’t compromise on design for its values continues to be the path Maggie Marilyn charts.

Release one of Where Wild Things Grow is available online and in stores now
