The collections, a collaborative effort between A$AP Rocky, PUMA, and F1 teams, will not only redefine racewear but also elevate fanwear and fashion associated with the sport. A$AP Rocky’s role as the creative director will extend beyond the drawing board, curating activations at each race and overseeing the marketing efforts.
