The Nipsey Hussle Puma Collection Is Coming This September
The Nipsey Hussle marathon continues… all over the world!
Just weeks before his tragic death, Nipsey Hussle announced that his fashion brand, The Marathon Clothing, would be teaming up with popular apparel company Puma for a capsule collaboration.
The German-headquartered retailer, which is known for its number of celebrity endorsements, scheduled the collection to be released this fall, and it looks like we finally have an official date.
Yesterday, Hussle’s Marathon team took to Instagram to share the exciting news with their 500,000+ followers, emphasizing on their mission to keep the late rapper’s life and legacy alive.
Making its way onto the market on September 5th, the posthumous project is said to be heavily inspired by Nipsey Hussle’s signature style.

Our team is proud to announce that our first collaborative capsule with @puma drops on September 5th 2019. Nipsey spearheaded this project from concept to final product over the course of last year, flying to meetings, reviewing samples, bringing in material references he liked, and most importantly ensuring that it reflected his style authentically with no compromise. Each detail from logo placement, fit, colorways, and materials was thoughtfully done. His signature style and DNA can be found in each garment that’s part of this collection from the khaki suit to the tracksuit. This project is very special to our team and we’re handling it with the utmost care to ensure it’s delivered exactly as Nipsey envisioned it. It’s a privilege for us to honor his commitment and carry out this project for people to receive a personally curated collection by Nip Hussle Tha Great.
Born Ermias Joseph Asghedom, on March 31st, 2019, Nipsey Hussle was fatally gunned down outside of his clothing store in South Los Angeles.
Though gone way too soon, he was a leading lyricist, businessman, and community activist… who will never be forgotten.
Rest in love, Tha Great.
