It was the show that rocked NYFW: the highly publicised Fenty X Puma by Rihanna on February 12. Yes, it was activewear, but it came with a hard-core, ultra-luxe edge absolutely in line with the star's provocative aesthetic.
The most talked about piece from the tightly edited collection has to be The Trainer - a high top sneaker that, in line with the current trend, blurs the divide between sport and street. In all black, red or white and with exaggerated proportions, The Trainer takes Rihanna's style but doesn't skimp on Puma's technical know-how - it's constructed from Ariaprene, a high-tech neoprene for a secure yet breathable fit, a fully reflective underlay, 360-degree pivot movement and strong support.
The Trainer has just dropped online at puma.com.au; get it while it's hot.
