Here's everything to know about BadGal RiRi's latest collection.
Rihanna's next Fenty fashion show will be back in New York City, WWD reports. After presenting in Paris for the past two seasons, BadGal RiRi is heading back to the city where she first brought her Puma collab to the runway.
The singer-turned-designer has yet to comment on the move, but Puma released a statement:
"After two successful seasons showing during Paris Fashion Week, Rihanna has decided to return to New York and show her Fenty Puma by Rihanna spring 2018 collection during NYFW, making this the first time she will present during September NYFW."
Last September, Rihanna traded in her original Puma Fenty New York Fashion Week location for a spot at Paris Fashion Week. This February, she'll be returning for her second consecutive show in the City of Lights.
Showing during Paris Fashion Week last season was the perfect fit for Bad Gal Riri's Spring collection, which was inspired by "Marie Antoinette at the gym." Featuring satin corsets, lace fans and lots of pink, the show's location at Paris's 19th-century mansion Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild made for an ideal backdrop to the unabashedly feminine and Parisian-inspired collection.

Fenty just jumped over Yeezy. Rihannna's Fenty x Puma creeper has been named Shoe of the Year by Footwear News, succeeding last year's winner, Kanye West's Yeezy Boost 350 sneaker. (The Adidas Stan Smith sneaker won the year before.) RiRi is also the first woman to receive the award, which counts as a major win with sneaker culture remaining fairly male-dominated.
The #FENTYxPUMA Creeper by @badgalriri is back. The original colorways are yours for the taking on September 29. See the other colors on @PUMASportstyle.

The singer-turned-desinger took to Instagram to celebrate the news:
What's the 2016 version of "Let them eat cake"? The answer: "Let them go to the gym!" Or at least that's what Rihanna is envisioning for Fenty x Puma, the second season of which she staged in a traditional French salon-style show today in Paris's Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild. According to the singer/designer, she found inspiration in fantasizing about what the infamous French queen would throw on to work out, or whatever. The exact aesthetic, straight from the bad gal's mouth: "If Marie Antoinette was going to the gym and needed something to wear."
