Outcome Of The Case Influences Decision Of Knowles

The holiday and festive season is the time when the stores, shops and retailers try their best to push a product into the eyes of the customer so that they can take advantage of the shopping weekend. Solange Knowles is however, treading on a different path as she has decided that she will not launch her new “Wild Wonder” line of Puma sneakers on Black Friday as she had decided previously. The reason given by her is the outcome of the Michael Brown case where the Officer Darren Wilson has been held to be innocent.

Artist Takes Out A Statement To Voice Her Feelings

Knowles posted about the change on her Instagram account and said, “To echo my feelings shared surrounding the outcome of the Michael Brown case, I have solely decided to postpone the release of my Puma collaboration originally scheduled to release this Friday, November 28th to Monday December 1st,”  “I am truly grateful for everyone’s support and excited to share this collection with you soon…” Other than Knowles, many other celebrities have voiced their protest over the incident and the outcome even after Wilson had shot to death the teenage boy. LeBron James voiced his empathy as well and said that his prayers were with the family of the deceased.

Partnership With Puma Had Materialized In 2013

The partnership between Solange and Puma had materialized in November 2013 and back then, she had announced about the joint venture in her Tumblr page. She had said that she wanted to channelize the artistic talent in her for an iconic brand like Puma and it was an opportunity for her to express love for design and creativity that she had in her.
