Editor’s Notes: As if owning New York Fashion Week with her Savage x Fenty presentation earlier this month wasn’t enough, Rihanna has arrived to turn heads in Paris, too. Earlier today, right in the middle of Paris Fashion Week, she dropped an entire new Fenty collection completely unannounced. And as you would expect, it’s fire.
Sticking to the now-established Fenty silhouette of big shoulders and cinched waists, this collection takes on classic American office wear, and then subverts it. The banker suit, the classic white shirt, blazers ,and pinstripes get the Fenty treatment with exaggerated shoulder pads and corset detailing. The house’s spliced-hem trousers remain, but this time arrive in darker colors and a jean iteration.
Rihanna’s favorite corseted boot makes an appearance again, too, alongside the new pointed pump aptly titled “Power Point.” Elsewhere, Rih channels her own off-duty stile with oversized graphic tees, paired with skirts with ultra-short hemlines.
