Skylar Diggins-Smith And PUMA Launch ‘Desert Sky’ Capsule Collection
August 2, 2022
Six time WNBA All-Star and Phoenix Mercury Guard Skylar Diggins-Smith has teamed up with PUMA to release her first capsule collection with the brand.
The collection of apparel items feature “bold graphics” and a “color palette inspired by the sunrises and sunsets of Phoenix, Arizona.” The Desert Sky capsule also represents an “intimate picture of Skylar’s balance in life.” With the collection featuring items that can be sported on the court, yet also worn to unwind in comfort at home.
The collection features four items which include the You Do You Sky Tee, Desert Sky Jersey Dress, Desert Sky Basketball Short, and TRC Blaze Court Desert Sky Sneaker.
The You Do You Sky Tee features a motto gestured between Skylar and her mother before every basketball game in her career. The Desert Sky Jersey Dress features Skylar’s number “4” on the back, as well as 90’s-inspired tear-away snap sides. The Desert Sky Basketball Short throws a modern spin on a throwback style with sunset-worthy hues. And the TRC Blaze Court Desert Sky Sneakers feature PUMA Hoops technology which is sure to give a boost on the court.
The sneakers are also extremely lightweight, provide cushion and stability, and feature high-abrasion, non-slip rubber tread that ensures traction and durability.
It’s no surprise that Skylar has ventured into the world of fashion. According to IndyStar, back in 2020, Diggins-Smith was nominated for the title of best dressed athlete in America by Sports Illustrated.
“I like to describe my style as tomboy chic,” she told Sports Illustrated. “Being comfortable is my No. 1 focus, so you’ll usually see me in a combination of athletic wear and jeans or a blazer. But I also love to wear heels and even those special occasion dresses that don’t have as much give as my everyday wear.”
Sport Diggins-Smith’s ‘Desert Sky’ capsule collection on and off the court, as it is now available to shop on PUMA.com. Today’s release date also marks Skylar’s 32nd birthday. And all items retail between $45 to $125.
