Rihanna presented her sportswear/street-wear collection, Fentry x Puma, last Wednesday at the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, a wonderful 19th century mansion, which was very representative of where she got her inspiration for the new collection: Versailles (where in 2015 she photographed for Dior and told journalists how the regal beauty of the place had an impact on her) and Marie Antoinette.
These references were clearly mixed with her own personal style. We’re talking about Ri-ri, that may step out today in tight clothes, ultra-sexy, and tomorrow show up wearing huge overalls, and no matter what outfit she may be wearing, she will look wonderful.
The collection has lots of pink, lace, corsets and since we are talking about Rihanna and her playful way of toying with opposites, large pants and huge overalls. In other words, smooth and strong, feminine and masculine.
The collection was well received and I would love to have some pieces in my wardrobe…
