*Rihanna released her first collection of creepers for Puma back in September, and they sold out almost instantly. Are you surprised?
Recently, she reissued the shoe in different colors (such as: Peacoat/Cool Blue and Coral Cloud Pink), and styles for men for $120.
Nearly a year after signing on as Creative Director for Womenswear at Puma, the singer will reportedly debut her collection at New York Fashion Week in the fall of 2016.
As VIBE notes, Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation announced the news, and will auction off one ticket to the fashion show. The package also includes backstage access, a flight to New York City, an invitation to the afterparty, and an autographed pair of PUMA’s Creepers footwear.
“It’s great to find a brand that celebrates strength and individuality,” she said in a statement about her PUMA partnership. “I couldn’t think of a more perfect partner to collaborate with as a creative director. I’m excited for you to see what Puma and I come up with.”
Meanwhile, it had previously been reported that Rihanna was going to release her “Anti” album on Nov. 27 – obviously that didn’t happen, yet YAHOO accidentally published a review of the album before they even heard it. Woops!
U.K.’s Independent reports how journalist Chris Riotta, who apparently wrote (and deleted) the article, has since tweeted a photo of Rihanna with a shrugging emoticon and the words “sh*t happens.”
As one Twitter user noted, “Yahoo’s prematurely published Rihanna record review is a masterpiece of post-modern non-journalism.”
