Fans will have to wait until September to get their hands on Rihanna’s latest collection, which just walked down the runway in Paris on Monday. But the pre-release for her spring 2017 Fenty x Puma collection is here, as of 10:00 a.m. this morning.
The first drop introduces four new styles of Fenty x Puma shoes, including the “bow collection” — satin bow slides and sneakers with satin bow laces, both available in olive green and a baby pink dubbed “silver pink” — plus two other pairs of lace-ups: a zip sneaker boot with a chunky platform and satin and leather overlays, and a lace-up, stiletto-heeled sneaker. (Everything but the stilettos are available for both men and women.) Of the four, the satin bow slides seem like the pair that’s destined to be the most wanted, much like the baby pink fur slides released last spring.
The shoes complement the wider spring collection, which Rihanna described “as if Marie Antoinette went to the gym!" — think pastel streetwear with lots of feminine embellishments like bows, princess sleeves, and embroidery.
Master of the limited drop, Fenty x Puma will release new items weekly April through June. New iterations of the mega-popular Fenty x Puma fur slides and creeper sneakers will also be released as part of the spring collection.
Check out the first shoes out, as well as where to buy them, below.
