Rihanna presents new fashion collection – inspired by Marie Antoinette “at the gym”

She may have only announced the Spring 2017 collection late last month, but Rihanna doesn’t do anything by half.

Thus just a few weeks later, the world has been treated, via an intimate show at Paris Fashion Week, to the singer’s latest collaboration with sports brand Puma.

Live-streamed on Jay Z’s digital music service Tidal, the star unveiled her second Fenty x Puma collection at the chandelier-strewn Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, gracing the French capital with a wave of pale pink, lace, corsetry and pearls – all with a dash of sportswear, of course.

Indeed, Rihanna told FROW-types that her inspiration was “If Marie Antoinette was going to the gym and needed something to wear.”

The collection was inspired by Marie Antoinette "at the gym"

Models showcased a soft colour palette of largely purple, pink, cream and khaki green pieces, accessorised with lace-up heels, huge flatform trainers and plenty of fans, and ranging from free-flowing wide lace trousers and loose silky hoodies to structured corsets and sheer lingerie-style slips.

Her own turn on the catwalk saw her don a floor-length pink coat over wide-leg trousers, with a pearl-adorned Puma fan and necklace.

Rihanna has been working with Puma since 2014, when the pop star was appointed creative director.

Ahead of the show, she said it was “a dream” for her to present in Paris after her first collection debuted in New York in February: “I approached this season very differently and felt the theme and concept was best suited for one of my favorite cities, Paris.”

So, the question is: which of these outfits will you be spinning in come spring?
