In February, pop phenomenon Rihanna made her fashion week design debut with her Fenty x Puma show. As a second collection didn’t appear at this season’s just-gone New York Fashion Week, it was unknown as to whether there would be a follow-up.
However, it’s been announced that the singer-slash-designer will be staging her second show at Paris Fashion Week in just eight days time, confirming rumours reported by WWD in August. A live stream will be available for all to watch on Tidal, including non-members, at 6.30pm and 7.30pm BST.
As for what we can expect – not much is known, other than that the show will be more intimate than her first and will be veering away from the traditional runway format. With a move from New York to Paris, this could possibly allude to more changes from the brand.
“It’s a dream for me to be able to present my second collection of Fenty Puma by Rihanna in Paris,” she told Vogue. “I approached this season very differently and felt the theme and concept was best suited for one of my favorite cities, Paris.”
The last AW16 Fenty x Puma collection showed Rihanna’s take on gothic, Japanese-inspired subversive streetwear. In addition to designing a collection, Rihanna has also been the main star of the campaigns, and her first shoe collaboration with Puma sold out in three hours.
