PUMA â€œThe Dim Sum Projectâ€
Last week marked the release of Hypebeastâ€˜s latest foray into the offline world with a collaborative pack of PUMA Blaze of Glorys inspired by an important cultural institution in Hong Kong, Dim Sum. Dubbed â€œThe Dim Sum Project,â€ the inspirations were based on Har Gao (shrimp dumpling) and Siu Mai (pork dumpling) which are two dishes often served together.
From a design perspective, the Blaze of Glory LTWT has established itself as a performance ready variation of the original Blaze of Glory and with the theme of Har Gao, it was best defined by a translucent upper over a tiger camo pattern beneath â€” a symbol to the Har Gaoâ€™s translucent wrapper. The Blaze of Glory OG Siu Mai on the other hand is a minimal affair that embodied high quality materials and finishes through a monochromatic upper inspired by the Siu Maiâ€™s vibrant yellow wrapper. An event to mark the launch took place at JUICE Causeway Bay and would entail a full-on thematic display of the shoes, a dissected presentation of each respective shoe, the screening of a short video and of course plenty of Dim Sum.
