Following the launch of her debut PUMA collection in March, Nomzamo Mbatha together with PUMA South Africa will be releasing the second installment of Shandu on 1 October 2021.
‘We need to understand the value of legacy,’ says Nomzamo. ‘You look at the biggest brands and legacies in the world and each has a surname attached to it. With this collection I pay homage to my family name, Shandu, knowing that my children, nieces and nephews will benefit from that.’
Drop 2 of the PUMA x Nomzamo Shandu Collection features a range of elegant yet edgy and, most importantly, comfortable apparel pieces that will set you up to break barriers and look fierce while doing it.
The drop features the PUMA x Nomzamo Bomber Jacket (R2 299), Track Jacket (R1 299), Track Pants (R1 299), Tops (R599), Maxi Dress (R999), Bodysuit (R699), AOP Bra Top (R799) and AOP Leggings (R999).
‘Like me, this collection is African through and through,’ says Nomzamo. ‘I want women to feel empowered and sexy.’
Nomzamo is part of PUMA’s She Moves Us communications platform which highlights some of its top female brand ambassadors and celebrates the women who have moved culture and sports forward to inspire other women around the world. To learn more, click here.
‘To the family and clan that I come from in KwaMashu, to my grandmother Mildred, who taught me how to stay humble but sassy while loving myself and remembering where I come from, and to every girl who aspires to be limitless in her greatness, despite her circumstance . . . Shandu is an ode to you,’ says Nomzamo.
The PUMA x Nomzamo Shandu Collection will be available from 1 October 2021 from PUMA.com, PUMA V&A Waterfront, Braamfontein, Mall of Africa, Sandton, Gateway, sportscene, X-Trend and selected retailers.
