In a press release at the time, Rihanna was to “work with Puma to design and customize classic Puma styles as well as create new styles to add to the Puma product portfolio.”
Since then, she has released several collections with Fenty X and Puma, most recently in 2017, simultaneous with the launch of her extremely successful Fenty Beauty makeup line.
The most popular items the powerhouse duo has concocted are the award-winning Fenty X Puma Creepers sneakers and fur slides.
Rihanna the fashion mogul
In 2019 Rihanna became the first black woman to head a fashion house when she joined LVMH to design her own Fenty fashion line — Fenty being her last name.
The singer also created her lingerie company Savage x Fenty as she added skincare to her makeup line with the Fenty Skin products.
