Rihanna Made Kanye’s Yeezy Look Like a Complete Joke
Rihanna is Genius! Those were the exacts words that unconsciously dropped from my mouth right after I stumbled on some images via social media from her most recent collection for Puma at Paris Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2017- Fenty by Rihanna.
Before I got a quote of Rihanna’s inspiration, I noticed that the entire collection oozed Victorian but with an athleisure appeal. It thus came as no surprise when Rihanna disclosed that her CR fashion book Marie Antoinette gone bad cover inspired her entire collection only this time the fashion icon is headed to the gym.
Being Riri’s second season, it has left me with the question of what Kanye is really doing in fashion? While Kanye’s eccentricity may have earned him stints for owning the most successful shoe line in 2015, he has also been successful at devaluing the real essence of clothing with its borderline garbage of cliche’s that possess more editorial than retail appeal.
Rihanna on the other hand is always about taking risks, pushing boundaries and creating garments that are both intellectual and commercial. Consistently infusing her knack for street culture with a slightly grunge, boudoir sporty aesthetic, she gives it a very anti-fictitious vibe such that you can see Rihanna in each piece of clothing presented. I find her inspiration for SS17 very intriguing and its execution down to its styling super fashion forward.
Maybe some of the Fenty by Rihanna pieces looked way too raggedy, but lets not forget Rihanna has never claimed to be a Hepburn or an Onassis. I love how the pieces can be taken apart to stand as a whole which is very good for fast fashion buisness (more merchandises to retail). According to Rihanna to Vogue
“Spring should feel like something fresh”
Little wonder, Riri’s palette boasted of more pastels and florals than strong colors. Here is Fenty by Rihanna x PUMA SS17 collection.
