Rihanna made waves during New York Fashion Week this Friday (Feb. 12) with the debut of her FENTY PUMA collection to a star-studded crowd at 23 Wall Morgan House. Rihanna, Gigi & Bella Hadid and host of models hit the “arctic urban forest” themed runway to showcase a black and white blocked collection of sports-meets-street fashion wear and accessories. The models’ hair and nails were also color blocked to match the frosted theme.
The entire line was “inspired by some sporty, street-sport, casual vibe”, Rihanna told the NY Times. “I tried to intertwine all of those things with a little bit of fashion. I tried to push the envelope a little bit in terms of what Puma has done in the past and also what they’re comfortable with doing.”
Since being named PUMA women’s creative director and global ambassador in December 2014, we’ve seen RiRi star in several campaigns and create one of their fastest selling shoes, the stacked platform Rihanna creeper sneaker. Now, Rihanna has designed her first full fashion line for the brand. Inspired by Japanese street culture and gothic overtones, the line includes skin-tight and sheer bodysuits, kimono robes, crop-tops, over-sized hoodies and coats and lace-up stiletto-heeled sneaker boots.
“The only thing that can make me feel better than tonight is to see somebody else wearing my stuff on the street,” said Rihanna.
