Cape Town, South Africa; May 5th, 2022 — Global sports brand PUMA and iconic comic strip character GARFIELD are teaming up for a debut collection for both adults and kids where the two cats join forces.
Inspired by the beloved cartoon cat and his love of food, the collection is all about the PUMA x GARFIELD market, offering delicious treats for hungry cats. Playful designs for both adults and kids stand out with bold colours and fun graphics – the result is a fun-loving streetwear collection.
The adult’s range includes tees, hoodie, shorts, and sweatpants with co-branded graphics featuring Garfield himself. For footwear, the classic Suede uses bold graphics and playful details like a graphic hangtag with the statement, “Big fat hairy deal!” A hat and backpack round out the accessories.
The kids apparel range includes tees and shorts. The footwear offering comes in a similar design to the adult styles, with the Suede arriving in junior and infant sizing. Kids can enjoy fun accessories like a cap and sling bag with Garfield’s face across the front.
Created by cartoonist Jim Davis, Garfield is the most widely syndicated comic strip in the world. With his signature “cattitude,” Garfield is 100% that cat, and he doesn’t care who knows it. He’s selfish, sarcastic, lazy…and surprisingly endearing. Since its launch in 1978, the famous cat has spawned movies, TV shows, stage shows and merchandise, and has received four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program. In 2019, Paramount Global acquired ownership of Paws, Inc., which holds rights to the Garfield franchise.
