Rihanna. Music royalty, and after yesterday’s show during Paris Fashion Week, can be considered fashion royalty. Streamed live from Paris, France, on Tidal the show opens with footage of the pop star turned designer, appearing to be very involved in details of the collection and fashion show.
Since Rihanna signed with Puma, she has single handily transformed the brand into high fashion. The runway, where male and female models including, Stella Maxwell and Slick Woods walked through three rooms, in an intimate setting under magnificent chandeliers. A variation of classic music and Rihanna’s own songs and hip-hop sound.
The show definitely had a majestic feel with the shows inspired by “Marie Antionette at the gym”. Pieces I could see Rihanna, maybe only Rihanna rocking, satin jumpsuits, lace up details, lace, stacked pearl necklaces and piercings. I felt represents her style, a mixture of trends and streetwear aesthetics. Male models wore feminine pieces making the line close to unisex.
The tonal presentation can be said to be similar to Kanye West’s collection with Adidas. I must say Fenty x Puma by Rihanna is more fashion forward. A nice follow up to the last Fenty collection that was black and white. I can not wait to see which celebrities rock the lace durags.
