Today Rihanna took over the National Library of France in Paris for the presentation of the Fenty x Puma Fall/Winter 2017 collection. And once you saw the theme of the collection, Fenty University, you understood why. The show started with models crowding around the balconies while a female version of Radiohead’s Creep played in the background. That gave way to the beats of Die Antwoord as Slick Woods strut her stuff down a desk in the centre of the room with a skateboard in hand.
It’s imperative that a designer or clothing line gets better with each collection and Fenty x Puma certainly did that. Just compare this Fall 2017 collection to the very first one and you can see tons of growth. There are fur coats with snap buttons that allow you to change the silhouette. Make your Clueless fantasies a reality with all that plaid. Rihanna’s personal style is evident in the puffer coats and shearling hoodies.
Plus there are a lot more shoe offerings this time. Combat boots and creepers are still around but she added slouchy over-the-knee boots, kitten heels and patent knee-highs. There are also some pointed suede boots with strap detail. The school theme plays out with varsity lettering on jackets and crop tops. Lynn Ban designed the jewellery again and it includes cannabis leaf earrings and pendants and pavé diamond hoop earrings. Very Bad Gal Riri!
