Puma makes awesome clothing, but their Dassler range is 4 steps above that. In fact, I now save up for 3 times as long, and opt for Dassler almost everytime, the stuff is just so good. Dassler has teamed up with &Union beer salon (read: awesome beer and kif sausage) to present some amazing live acts for you. Here is the PUMA press release.
Cape Town, South Africa 21 July, 2009 – ‘RUDOLF DASSLER by PUMA presents “THE SIDE-PROJECTS’” a series of unplugged concerts, produced in partnership with uber-cool Cape Town beer salon &Union.
Performers including Luado from aKing , Lonesome Dave Ferguson, Lance Herman and Josh Ginsburg from Fly Paper Jet, Wrestlerish and Richard Brokensha and Ryk Benade Kidofdoom will perform a once-off set of unreleased material unplugged, the concerts will take place at 7.30pm every Saturday from 15 August to 19 September at &Union on Heritage Square.
The cornerstone of the St Stephen’s Church redevelopment on Cape Town’s Bree Street, the &Union space occupies a section of the cellar in one of the cities oldest existing churches. &Union is a celebration of pairing finely produced foods and their consummate counterpoints from a range of distinctly brewed beers. Hand-selected and succinct. Stripped of all the usual trappings cluttering the search for a great brew, the selection is focussed and edited, ensuring customers have nothing more to worry about than savouring the moment.
To support this project PUMA will install the PUMA Mobile Unit at &Union – the PUMA Mobile Unit is a converted for retail 20 foot shipping container, taking inspiration from PUMA’s concept store design. The unit will be open to the public from 9am-9pm daily, beginning on August 13 and will close after the show on August 15. The PUMA Mobile Unit will stock Rudolf Dassler by PUMA apparel, accessories and selected PUMA Black Label footwear that will be sold at special rates to commemorate this occasion.
‘The Rudolf Dassler by PUMA collection is strongly positioned with music. We have partnered with &Union to showcase some of South Africa’s top musical talent alongside our latest Dassler products in the unique atmosphere and style that is &Union. Crafted beer, fine foods, SA’s best musos and Rudolf Dassler by PUMA – what more could you ask for?!’ Brett Bellinger, Marketing Director, PUMA South Africa.
Rooted in heritage sport and the revolutionary spirit, Rudolf Dassler by PUMA is a modern collection that personifies the clash of sport and fashion with the combination of vintage silhouettes and contemporary street style. Staying true to its origins, the Rudolf Dassler by PUMA collection has that unique urban culture at its core while introducing new styles and print designs in both footwear and apparel.
Make the effort to get to one. You will not be missed. If their beer isnt your thing, HQ and Boo Radleys are within spitting distance, and they serve Jack Black Draught. So have your cake and eat it…
