Can Socks Be Sexy? If Rihanna Designs and Models Them, Duh
The musician's third offering from Stance is as subversively feminine as the last
Rihanna is on a major collaborative roll right now. Her line for Puma is single-handedly keeping the healthy goth masses clad in athleisure, her capsule collection of denim Manolo Blahnik heels is set to hit stores any day now, and soon all of our faces will look as flawless as Ri’s thanks to a forthcoming FENTY cosmetics line. With all that going on, one would thing the Bajan singer’s plate would be full to overflowing, but she’s not done yet, debuting yet another new line this week, presenting her third offering of socks in collaboration with Stance.
For her latest sock designs, Rihanna created a “romantic athleisure” collection that proves that “romance and femininity do not mean demure.” Mixing certain sporty tropes, such as varsity letters and athletic stripes, with surprisingly feminine details like lace, mesh, and small bows going up the back, creating foot coverings that convey a very modern brand of sex appeal.

The singer created 19 styles for this line, including some all new toeless and footless silhouettes, anklets, over the knee and thigh high styles, all in an array of black, white and pastel tones.
Now that we can all finally apparel and beautify ourselves from head to toe in pure FENTY, there’s really only one final entrepeneurial frontier for the pop star to conquer—her own line of furniture. And just in case that fantasy ever becomes a reality, let us be the first to say we would gladly live inside a Riri-designed apartment and only wear oversized Puma sweatshirts, sheer bow-bedecked thigh-highs and denim chap boots for the rest of our days.
