Rihanna attended the Fall 2015 presentation for Kanye West x adidas Originals (also known as Yeezy x Adidas) today in New York. She wore a look from VFILES‘ Fall 2015 collection, which debuted on the runway just last night. For those who are unaware, each fashion season VFILES chooses three or four up-and-coming designers to showcase during New York Fashion Week. Most of these young people would not be able to put on a runway show or presentation on their own since they are usually fresh out of fashion school. By participating in this show, their creations are exposed to a wider audience. Rihanna is a big fan of VFILES in general and she wore pieces from the Fall 2014 collection for everything from televised performances to Paris Fashion Week. Her support of emerging talent in the fashion industry is just one of the many great things about the singer.
Rih wore Look 9 to the Yeezy show, which was created by Julia Seemann. The designer is currently based in Zurich and these are looks from her graduate collection. Her pieces included lots of denim, floppy hats and visors. Rihanna’s look comprised a blue, off shoulder, plush top with a zip across the front. Half of the left sleeve is red pleather and you can get a better look at the top in the gallery below. Over this she wore a denim jacket with a black and white noise print and contrast stitching. The shorts also feature contrast stitching but the most interesting detail is that the front half is black denim while the back is pleather.
Her shoes are the Latta black pumps with white laces by Manolo Blahnik. Rih also wore a Where you from? necklace from MALA by Patty Rodriguez that says Bridgetown and the Majesty necklace was made by Thea, who specialises in personalised jewellery. Majesty is the name of her cousin and goddaughter. In her right ear she sported Colette‘s yellow gold and white diamond Baby Garras ear cuff and a diamond ear cuff by Suel. On her left hand is Lynn Ban‘s yellow gold and white diamond Ankh ring, which has a curvaceous shape.
Rihanna was photographed heading to the show in an oversized down coat by Jessica Walsh. The black coat has a ribbed wool collar, two large front pockets and a zip closure. This piece was part of the designer’s Master of Fine Arts and Design collection from Parsons, which was selected for the fashion school’s Spring 2015 runway show. Click here to review that show.
