On Thursday September 28th the Fall/Winter 2017 collection of Rihanna’s Fenty Puma line is due to be released. The fashion show for this collection was held in the atrium of the Richelieu-Louvois Library earlier this year during Paris Fashion week in March.

This season’s collection gives off a back to school feel with the use of plaid and fall colors such as hunter green, mustard yellow, navy blue, grey, creme, and black. Rihanna lets us know that class is back in session by incorporating this line with over sized stripe sweaters, sweats, creeper shoes, track suits, and clothes reading “Fenty University”.

The clothes for these season take inspiration from school uniforms and feature crests, and mimic the preppy school kid style with the large knit sweater featuring patchwork of the letters “F” and “S” along the hem. Fenty Puma is also offering fans baseball caps, featuring a large letter “F”, a common motif throughout this season’s line. This line even includes a navy blue teddy bear backpack with a big letter “F” on its chest. Fun pieces like this is what makes the line so Rihanna.

This collection has referred to as rebellious collegiate wear and definitely lives up to that title. It may even make you think of Will and Carlton’s days back at Bel Air Academy. While this collection is still considered to be athleisure since it is apart of the Puma collaboration, the lounge wear influence is not as direct with this collection. Nonetheless Fenty Puma FW17 will be the source of many fashionistas fall style chicness.
