Over the years Rihanna and fashion have almost become synonymous; from her killer street style outfits to her show stopping red carpet looks, she's always pushing fashion forward and looking stunning at the same time. Admittedly I would probably not be bold enough to wear some of her outfits, but she makes pulling them off look easy. Rihanna never stays in one place for too long.. and that's what I love about her. She can start a trend today and then move on to the next thing tomorrow, meanwhile the rest of the world spends years catching up.
When I learned that she would be collaborating on a shoe line with Puma, I didn't know what to expect. Her style can be extra loud and colorful sometimes, so I anticipated a line of shoes that I'd admire from a distance and not be able to incorporate into my own style. I was pleasantly surprised when Puma released the FENTY by Rihanna Creepers, a casual lace up sneaker with a cool rubber platfrom and suede upper. They come in a huge variety of colorways, the black / white and blue / black being my favorite (there's also a white upper / black sole version that hasn't been released yet, looking out for those too!). These are definitely understated enough to be an everyday shoe, and I love the mix of platfrom and sportswear.
Rihanna is known for being very hands-on with all her creative endeavors (not just fashion, she even directed her most recent music video!), so I am confident that these are a true collaboration. Her street style outfits + photo shoot with Travis Scott have made me fall in love with the creepers, I hope I can catch a pair next time they're in stock! Here are some ways I'd style them, let me know what you think of the outfits and the shoes themselves! xx Flo
