Rihanna Brought the X-Games to NYFW for Fenty PUMA Spring/Summer 2018 Collection

Surf meets motocross.


By //Fashion

Rihanna brought the heat for New York Fashion Week with a roaring X Games-inspired Fenty PUMA Spring/Summer 2018 show. Upping the theatricality of last year’s Marie Antoinette theme, this season’s spectacle featured daredevil stunts, giant pink sand dunes and a neon green-clad badgalriri zipping across the stage on a motocross bike.

But aside from the adrenaline-filled show, the collection itself made a strong impact. Rihanna flexed her design prowess with a cohesive athleisure range that combined surf and motocross elements. Overarching the entire collection was a confident neon color palette that was amplified by sheeny nylons and patent materials, and peppered with more neutral hues such as army green and navy.

The menswear side was all about oversized silhouettes. Baggy cargo biker pants, anoraks, hoodies and tracksuits were visited by industrial straps, utility buckles and streamlined zippers. Imposing proportions were either balanced with skin-tight scuba shorts or augmented with Fenty x PUMA’s signature chunky creepers and work-wear boots. Other highlight accessories such the oversized waist pack and neon-rimmed riding glasses tapped into some of the most relevant trends of contemporary streetwear.
