I saw Rih’s latest collection for her FENTY x PUMA line glued to multiple live streams, admiring the catwalk in awe together with one of my BFFs. Rihanna’s projects have a way of making me feel part of something bigger, be it her excellence, fanbase or friendships. I think it’s amazing how she manages to bring that feeling to me not only through her music but with fashion, interviews and performances as well.

How amazing isn’t it that fashion, music, art, movies, literature, architecture etc can make you feel things? For me it’s one of the best parts of life, to experience a physical sensation thanks to the arts. That’s something worth fighting for. I’m thinking of Trump’s plan to eliminate all funding to programs like the National Endowment of the Arts, for example. That can’t be allowed. We can’t allow it. Art and the opportunity to practice it is vital for the quality of life and a healthy democracy since it allows us to feel, reflect, experience new things and challenge our way of thinking. Which is of course exactly what oppressors try to suppress.

A group of people that truly understand the link between art and quality of life are fangirls (we live for it after all!). So I decided to ask around:

How does the new Fenty x Puma collection make you feel?


”I have experienced a new feeling. I call it slayrage. It’s similar to cuteness-rage (when you see a baby or animal that is so cute you can’t handle it and you get mad instead)only it’s when you see someone slaying real bad. What triggered it? Seeing first a picture from the Fenty x Puma line and then pics from Zara Larssons nike cooperation. Like she put split pants on top of some silk boxer short??? Who the hell thinks of that? And it looks so amazing my head wants to explode??? Like in a butch but gay and silk underwear and new way to expose the thighs kind of way???”

”The new collection makes me feel SOOO happy! To see Rihanna grow from such a small artist into the successful musician and fashion designer she has become is inspiring! I’m super proud of her. I love how the collection is based on an ”American cliques” theme, from goths to skaters, to nerds and preppies and bad girls! It has something for everybody and is definitely my favorite FENTYxPUMA collection so far!”

Some of Vinnie’s favorite looks from the collection.

This collection makes me happy. I love it because I’m so comfortable with this style. I could see myself wearing so many pieces from this collection. I definitely loved this one the most out of all, although the Fenty x Puma collections from before were marvelous as well. I was not expecting this at all, but Fenty never disappoints.”


The models walked on tabletops at the French National Library.

”Her vision is so unorthodox. Just watching the fashion show & seeing her ideas manifested was invigorating.”


”I’m very intrigued by the innovative and versatile pieces that Rihanna and the other designers came up with. She did so well with picking the beautiful and comfortable fabrics and designs.”

”This Fenty X Puma collection got me totally SHOOK. It is everything and more than we expected from the style Queen. I’m so proud of her. I’m glad I’ve got some pieces from the winter and spring collection!!!!! Rihanna has an amazing fashion taste, we can notice that since when she was a child!!! Rihanna is able to influence others style as well. I love her.”


”My fav 3 styles ;-) /Renri”

”I felt I missed those school style which I did when I was high school and uni student! But the collection change those basic school style so much more stylish!!! How cool.”

”The new Fenty x Puma Collection makes me feel immensely proud of Rih. I have watched and admired her growth over the years and seeing her doing something of this magnitude reminds me every time why I love her so much. 


”Even though my student life is ending this June and I could not be more upset, this line brings back my university life in a much cooler and more elegant way as Fenty University. I can’t wait to experience my new university. ”

”It made me feel so excited!!! She’s so creative… I even went to Paris to support her 3rd fashion show… Can’t wait until this collection be available!”

Shortly after visiting Harvard, Rihanna started her own university. In form of a fashion show. 55 looks was presented at the French National library for Fenty x Puma’s third collection earlier this evening and Rih took us to school, or rather detention, while serving major Hogwarts feels (a good thing). I was happily surprised to see that the livestream on Rihanna’s Instagram came from backstage while the official PUMA livestream showcased the runway. It was such a treat to see her in action and be able to listen in while she worked.

Other highlights: Slick Woods opening the show, Cara Delevingne jumping up to give Rih a standing ovation and Mama Fenty looking proud and ah-mazing per usual.

Just stepping in to tell everyone who’s still craving some Fenty x Puma that Caliroots (amongst others) have some pieces on sale from now until Sunday. I hate capitalism and myself for posting so much about to where and buy things and such but that’s life and sometimes you just have to forgive yourself. :)

Rihanna isn’t in Paris to just showcase her own line. This Friday she was seen next to Kate Moss at Dior’s show, looking over the top beautiful and radiant (she’s glowing, you can see her glowing right?).

I tried looking at Dior’s live stream but thought it was super boring to be honest. I get that it’s amazing how they’ve finally gotten their first female creative director in Maria Grazia Chiuri EVER (less than 20% of the brands showing in Paris had women creative directors last year) but it’s still clothes for white, skinny, upper class women modeled by white models so….

Sure, Rihanna and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie were both sitting front row and there were a few black models on the runway (two by the time I shut the live stream off) but let’s be honest, Dior has a long way to go if they aim to match that ”We should all be feminists” (the titel from Chimamanda’ s famous TEDxEuston speech) t-shirt with some actual action.

Help me out if I’m wrong here but I don’t understand what kind of feminism this consumer idea of ahop you’re way to change is? Yes, some rich woman wears a t-shirt that says we should all be feminists. She feels good about it. Someone is offended. Sweet. But it’s still the same women working in the factories for nothing while predominantly white models are payed huge money to walk the show. And models of color still NOT getting that paycheck. And the same, skinny bodies fitting into the clothes. So what is the feminist statement in that? From where I’m sitting it just looks like a brand trying to score some points in a more politically aware crowd without changing anything substantial about the way their clothes and ideals are being produced. Happy to discuss this further though, I’m no fashion world expert after all.
