From the hard courts of the WNBA to the sophisticated echelons of the fashion world, Skylar Diggins-Smith has consistently delivered. A force of nature on the basketball court, this six-time WNBA All-Star’s prowess extends far beyond dribbling and dunking. Now, in a renewed partnership with Puma Hoops, Skylar is once again ready to dazzle the world with her “Reflections” collection, showcasing a seamless blend of athletic dedication and innovative fashion.
Having stood at the intersection of sports and style for over a decade, Skylar’s influence remains undiminished. This latest capsule, the “Reflections,” embodies the essence of self-awareness, a mantra Skylar deeply resonates with. Hieroglyphics-inspired motifs, coupled with Skylar’s heartfelt mantra, “Don’t Play Yourself,” not only reflect her cool intensity but also her profound connection to her roots and identity. It’s more than a collection; it’s a narrative of her journey.
The pièce de résistance of “Reflections” is undeniably the TRC Blaze court shoe. Designed for athletes, fashion enthusiasts, and everyone in between, this shoe promises not just aesthetic allure but also unmatched performance. With features like a full-length pro foam midsole and a Trinomic cell structure, these shoes spell out dominance and flair in equal measure.
But shoes are just the tip of the iceberg. This collection unravels a myriad of garments that underline Skylar’s vision of versatility. A chic bodysuit that marries comfort with panache, a hoodie that’s steeped in modern culture, shorts that epitomize comfort, and graphic tees that scream audacity – every piece in this collection resonates with the harmonious dichotomy of Skylar’s world, both in the arena and outside.
The beauty of this collaboration doesn’t merely lie in its design but also in the personal journey it represents. Skylar herself reminisces, “Through ‘Reflections’, I’ve had the opportunity to look back on the 10 years I’ve been in the WNBA – from getting drafted in 2013, to designing my second collection while pregnant with my daughter. I’m proud of this collection and love that Puma allows me to showcase my abilities as a designer & creative.”
