What is Archive?
PUMA Archive is a commemoration of storied style. The most notorious models were designed at memorable junctions in time. Each is a reaction to an athlete who brilliantly synced the space between sport and style— plus an artist whose patterns never cease to play hard.
From the burgeoning skateboarding scene in the 70’s, the break-dancing and hip—hop revolution of the 80’s, to the 90’s when sport and fashion became interchangeable, PUMA Archive demonstrates how PUMA was at the forefront of shaping and defining so many cultural movements.
PUMA Archive respectfully re-issues these cult classics as well as creating new designs that break all the molds. PUMA Archive products come with stories and roots that situate them in a grander game—they’re style with significant substance. Some of these models you will know all to well are the Suede and Clyde.
Bittersweet, the combo named after that popular Verve song, were one of the first to rush out of the gates from their hometown of Ipoh – Malaysia’s spiritual indie rock haven – to standout and be embraced by both the fashion-rock intelligentsia. Bittersweet was recognized to have passionately and tastefully combined Malay pop yeh yeh sensibilities with Madchester and Britpop cues, absorbed from their teenage years, to become South East Asia’s “new favourite band” for hipsters in the years since they started in 2004.
Bittersweet’s twisty brand of rock was inspired by the sounds of Doves, Coldplay, Blur, Radiohead, Killers, MGMT – all of those staples play their own special part to make up the essence of Malaysia’s premier indie boppers.
Having played at the Elevate Tour and Studio C Tour as well as live highlight at Hard Rock Café Penang 2010, the boys from Bittersweet have an ardent fervor to perform and hope to get you grooving to their tunes.
Nadhira Nishaa, the Malaysian-born singer songwriter has been mad about music for as long as she can remember. Her attraction to R&B and it’s endless possibilities is where she find herself most comfortable and drawing from her personal experience is what inspired her eight track EP “From Malaysia with Love”.
In early 2010, Nadhira unleashed her first single “Breaking Up” Ft King Lhota (Senegal) which rose to the #1 spot on Fly FM’s Campur Chart , setting the stage for the release of “Do It Again”.
Nadhira has garnered support from numerous Malaysian media and the release of “Do It Again” climbed up HITZ.FM MET 10 chart reaching #1 for a few weeks. Not only with support from Malaysia, Nadhira toured Canada to promote “From Malaysia with Love” performing in Toronto, Vancouver & Salt Spring Island to appreciative crowds.
