Rihanna has been making quite a big splash since hosting a successful fashion show at the New York Fashion Week. The event showcased the latest Fenty range in partnership with Puma, the Fenty University. The range has now officially dropped in stores in South Africa.
The Fenty range has always been known for showcasing varsity sport styles, while striking a balance between streetwear and high fashion. The latest collaboration with Puma continues in the same spirit, which was designed to represent the unique styles of different youth cultural cliques: nerds, jocks, skaters, preppies, goth kids and, as Rihanna would have it, bad gals.
The updated Fenty Puma by Rihanna AW’17 collection takes the classic school uniforms and dismantles them, with new stylings for varsity jackets, reimagined with exaggerated dimensions. More significantly, the launch also sees an update to the Fenty sneaker range, where sneakers meet stiletto heels. The sneakers feature unexpected cut lines, premium materials, and chenille patches abound.
