I’d been dying to snag a few pieces from Rihanna’s Fenty x PUMA line, as there’s nothing out there in the athleisure space that speaks to me more. Known for her avant-garde and often provocative sense of style, she’s created an athleisure collaboration that is just that: unapologetically fashion forward.
It’s been nearly a year since the collection first hit the catwalks of New York Fashion Week, and a little over a month since the collection hit retailers, and as soon as my haul arrived, I was hooked! Rihanna’s dark, urban gothic style is very similar to my own, so the blend of it with current athleisure trends was a match made in heaven.
Out of all the items in the current release, I was drawn to the Kimono the most. My other affinity when it comes to personal style tends to be inspired by Japanese trends (hello nail art!), so naturally, it’s bold shape and characters were a total draw. I’m a track jacket junkie, so it’s seamless blend of track and kimono was also a mega sell.
This jacket goes from the studio right to the street, and can even be paired with a night out ensemble. I wore it to a special event with bumble&Bumble last weekend, and it was a huge hit! Additionally, stay tuned as well for an exciting collab with bumble&Bumble, my favorite wash and wear hair product line! I’ll be sharing my product lineup/how to’s on how my hair stays so perfectly styled with one or less wash a week (these photos are a whole week!).
Also of note is my FAVE T-shirt of all time: the Express One Eleven V-Neck Tunic Tee. It’s also on sale for less than $30, so snag one now! It’s incredibly soft, versatile, and flattering on every body type. I have one in nearly every color, and take a size small.
