Puma really struck gold when they named Rihanna their new Women’s Creative Director last year. Yes, OK, the Creeper — the debut style of her Puma by Rihanna Collection and Fenty label — only just hit stores last week. But mere hours after it rolled out, it sold out. The in-demand shoe was snatched up in a pinch, proving the thirst is real for Rih’s collection.
Luckily, it looks like we may now have a peek at what’s next on the Puma by Rihanna agenda. In a new photo shoot accompanying her Fader 100 cover, Rih stuns in an all-pink outfit that perfectly captures her athleisure style: a slinky, satin AWAVEAWAKE dress, layered over a baby pink Rochas shirt with tiny cut-outs and a bold “R” emblazoned on the top left.
She accessorizes the look with heaps of gold jewelry and low-maintenance hair, but it’s her feet that demand your attention. That’s because Rihanna’s sporting a pair of furry pink sandals that Fader credits as Fenty Puma by Rihanna.
Rih’s been spotted wearing the sandals in black and pink over the past few weeks, but now it’s confirmed that the comfy-looking slide-ons are indeed part of her Puma collection.
As we’ve pointed out before, Rihanna has a well-documented affection for furry shoes, so it’s hardly a surprise that she’d want to bring the style to the masses. F—k the fact that it’s getting colder and winter is coming — we’ll still rock these sandals no matter what time of year it is. Maybe with a pair of Rihanna’s Stance Socks underneath? We’re sure she’d approve.
