Rihanna Fenty x Puma Fall/Winter 2017 Paris Show Recap


The invite

The first clue was the invitation. For Rihanna’s third Fenty x Puma collection, she was taking us back to school (hence the varsity), and giving us all detention.

We would all be bad gals, it seemed.

As for the venue, well as anyone who has seen The Breakfast Club knows (or actually spent time in detention), it happens in the library. And for Rihanna, that meant the library—the newly restored Bibliotheque Nationale de France: a soaring space with marble columns, gold rococo details, floor-to-very-high-ceiling shelves of books, and rows upon rows of tables dotted with green lampshades. Fenty and Puma pennant flags hung from the balconies.

Funny thing though, none of the books were real. They were all brought in expressly for the show.

The vibe was all a little Rihanna does Hogwarts.

We were asked to clear our coats and bags off of the long reading tables and then we knew: the tables would be the runways. Rihanna is a rebel through and through and her models would stomp across the tables of France’s national library.

Model Hanne Gaby Odiele even went so far as to rip pages out of a book as she walked. It-model Slick Woods opened the show, and supers like Joan Smalls and Lily Donaldson also walked.
