Rihanna’s second capsule collection for Manolo Blahnik is called Savage and was inspired by Timberland boots.

Rihanna and Manolo Blahnik have put their heads together once again, creating a collection of winter boots, inspired by Timberland. It’s the second time this year the two have collaborated, following their Denim Desserts debut in May. The new collection, Savage, features three boot styles and launches Nov. 16.

They are inspired both by Rihanna’s penchant for suede and shearling and her love affair with the Timberland work boot. One of the new Savage models, the Fallon, is a rework of the Timberland-style boot that Blahnik first designed — with a stiletto heel — in the Aughts.

It was beloved of the R&B and hip-hop scenes. Beyoncé rocked it in her “Bonnie & Clyde” music video, and Jennifer Lopez also worked the look in the video for “Jenny From the Block.” The latest iteration has furry trim, and comes in shades of ivory and coffee.

The Dominique is a thigh-high sheepskin-lined boot made of black ponyskin, which can also be worn folded at the top. The skin has been laser-cut in a macro floral brocade design, similar to the Marie Antoinette-inspired Fenty x Puma collection Rihanna showcased during the latest Paris Fashion Week.

The Alexis is a knee-length, lace-up with fur trim running around the top and down the laces. It comes in ivory and cinnamon.

Rihanna sent Lopez a pair of the thigh-high, belted 9-to-5 denim boots from her first Manolo Blahnik capsule line. Lopez was so enamored that she gave them a starring role in her “Ain’t Your Mama” music video.

All three styles from the Rihanna x Manolo Blahnik Savage collection are limited and will only be available to purchase in select Manolo Blahnik stores and online at manoloblahnik.com starting Nov. 16.

puma_rihanna_pink_creeper_shoe_of_the_year

Three hours: That’s how long it took for Rihanna’s first shoe for Puma — the Creeper — to sell out when it debuted last fall and it continued to gain momentum during this year.

The Fenty Puma Creeper was the only choice for the 2016 Shoe of the Year: The sought-after honor will be presented at the 30th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York on Nov. 29.

“In my wildest dreams, I never would have imagined an honor like Shoe of the Year,” Rihanna told FN. “It means so much to me to make a mark like this in the shoe and sneaker industry and to have so many people share my love for the Creeper.”

FN selects the shoe of the year based on retail sales, consumer feedback, social media prowess and overall buzz. The award has been handed out just three times: Kanye West took it home last year and accepted it in person with a heartfelt and funny 20-minute speech about his fashion rise and hit Yeezy Boost 350 sneaker with Adidas. In 2014, tennis legend Stan Smith was on hand to accept the prize for his own hot signature shoe with Adidas.

“Shoe of the Year is the most coveted award because it truly reflects industry dominance,” said Michael Atmore, FN’s editorial director. “Like Stan Smith and Kanye West, Rihanna made a statement shoe that drove global excitement and generated huge sales. Rihanna and Puma pushed the market in a new direction with an overnight sensation that has real legs.”

This year, Rihanna’s Creepers have flooded Instagram feeds, caused site crashes and popped up on eBay the moment the shoes sell out. Fans of Rihanna’s bold, devil-may-care approach to fashion have scrambled to get their hands on a pair of Creepers, which have released in an array of mostly neutral colorways over the past year. But it’s not just female fans who are scooping up the style: Rihanna and Puma have also released the Creepers in men’s sizing with success.

The Creeper — which has been worn by Cara Delevingne, Gigi and Bella Hadid and The Weeknd, among other celebrities — is a twist on Puma’s classic styles, decked out with a Creeper-style sole. Rihanna, who serves as creative director for the athletic brand, designed the shoe with input from menswear brand Mr. Completely, which had previously made her custom Adidas and Nike sneakers.

Since the release of the Creeper, Rihanna and Puma have dropped a laceless trainer and faux fur slides. She’s also put on two Fenty x Puma runway shows, most recently for spring ’17 at Paris Fashion Week in October.

As Rihanna steps into the shoe spotlight, FN is also acknowledging the continued success of West and Adidas, which is why Adidas North America president Mark King will be honored with the Person of the Year award.

Other honorees at the event, affectionately known as the Shoe Oscars, include Designer of the Year Paul Andrew, Lifetime Achievement Award winner Aldo Bensadoun, Icon Award winner Iris Apfel and Hall of Fame inductee Linda Fargo, fashion maven at Bergdorf Goodman.

Stay tuned for more of the 2016 winners, including Company of the Year, Brand of the Year and Style Influencer. The FN Achievement Awards are sponsored by the Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFANY), Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America (FDRA), Zappos Luxury and Two Ten Footwear Foundation.

Rihanna-Puma_NYFW

There are no less than four new designer appointments and a slew of new brands on the schedule for Paris Fashion Week, but the latest intel out of the City of Light might be its most exciting yet. On Wednesday, September 28, Rihanna will present her Spring 2017 Fenty x Puma collection during Paris Fashion Week.

“It’s a dream for me to be able to present my second collection of Fenty Puma by Rihanna in Paris,” the songstress said via release. “I approached this season very differently and felt the theme and concept was best suited for one of my favorite cities, Paris.”

The Fenty x Puma show will be staged at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. in Paris and live-streamed exclusively on Tidal for fans to follow along. (Non-members will also be able to watch the streams on Tidal, too.) The scene of the Spring show promises to be more intimate than Rihanna’s blowout Fall outing in New York last February—and very different from a traditional runway show format. How different? Well, you’ll have to tune in on September 28 to find out.

rihanna_bergdorfs_puma_fenty_launch

Last night, Puma creative director Rihanna celebrated the launch of her first FENTY x PUMA by Rihanna ready-to-wear collection by greeting throngs of fans at Bergdorf Goodman, and SIX:02 in New York.

Puma also debuted Fenty Puma’s Fall 2016 campaign photographed by Willy Vandeperre and styled by Alastair McKimm. It features models Fei Fei Sun, Cong He, and Sang Woo Kim.

“This collection is not only a representation of who I am and how I dress, but also pushes the boundaries of what I wanted to create with Puma.” Rihanna said in a statement. “I wanted to take Puma to a new place with something unpredictable and unexpected. It’s Japanese street culture with a haunting twist. I played with texture and silhouettes and all of the fabrics are luxurious. I reinterpreted the traditional in my way.”

Check out photos of the event below, and more of Rihanna out and about in our candids gallery.

Cambridges_Museum_of_Classical_Archaeology_Exhibiton_RihannaA new exhibition at the Cambridge Museum of Classical Archaeology, University of Cambridge, entitled Recasting (5 September-15 October), brings together classic and contemporary works in a variety of media, demonstrating how today’s art stars are in dialogue with Greco-Roman art and mythology. The exhibition takes the form of a series of interventions throughout the museum’s Cast Gallery, the organisers say, with Maggi Hambling, Matthew Darbyshire and Rosie O’Grady among the artists looking to antiquity. The Scottish artist Reilly will show a digital collage combining a true (cultural) icon— the pop songstress Rihanna—and the more classic poster girl, Aphrodite of Knidos by Praxiteles.

REILLY’s work has featured on campaigns for many top brands – including Gucci, Lamborghini, Microsoft, Nike, LVMH, Ray-Ban, Coca Cola, Jimmy Choo, Adobe, Paul Smith, Kylie Minogue, Hed-Kandi, Vogue, V&A, Chloé, Penguin Publishing, Sony and more.

RECASTING brings together works by contemporary artists who explore, embrace, or challenge the classical artistic tradition. Spanning different materials and formats – painting, sculpture, installation, video, and drawing – the exhibition takes the form of a series of interventions throughout the museum’s Cast Gallery.

Visit the Museum’s official website for more info about the exhibition.
