Rihanna closes out day two of Paris Fashion Week — twice

Rihanna closed out the second day of Paris Fashion Week here on Wednesday night with a pair of back-to-back, live-streamed-to-Tidal shows that marked her Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection’s official debut in the City of Lights.

The Spring/Summer 2017 men’s and women’s collection, shown at the Hotel Solomon de Rothschild, was rooted in a lingerie-meets-athleisure vibe silhouette-wise and a Marie Antoinette-meets-military aesthetic color- and detail-wise. That may sound like a train wreck of influences, but the result was a flirty, feminine streetwear collection that had legs – and maybe even a pair of brass knuckles tucked in the waistband.
