Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing is a fan of the mood-boosting power of a boxing class. Indeed, the sport has long been a way for the fashion flock, from Helena Christensen to Michèle Lamy, to keep in fighting form. So when Puma came calling, looking to do a high fashion–meets–athleticwear capsule along with its current ambassador Cara Delevingne, Rousteing was in.

“I’ve known Cara for a number of years,” he says, “and she’s not someone who will just lend her name to something. She gives 300 percent. And given our shared love of boxing, the inspiration was easy.” After months of sketching—and Delevingne trying on each sample to ensure proper fit—the result is athleisure through a Balmain filter: shredded Breton-stripe hoodies, gold-trim windbreakers, and a retro-futuristic color-blocked minidress. Rousteing’s personal favorite? A reversible bomber jacket, above, in the pair’s favored hues: black and white (Rousteing) on one side, red and blue (Delevingne) on the other.

Click through to see every look from the capsule ahead. The collection will launch on November 21st on,, and select retailers worldwide.
