While Rihanna's taking forever to release her eighth album—or to even give us any idea what to expect—the world's getting all sorts of other Rih treats. Yesterday it was a new version of the classic cell phone game Snake. Today it's the news that Ms. Fenty has signed a three-year deal to become contributing creative director for California sock company Stance.
"She’s also becoming one of Stance’s brand ambassadors," writes Women's Wear Daily, "joining celebrities like artist Langley Fox Hemingway and former NBA All-Star Allen Iverson as the so-called 'Punks and Poets.'"
Rihanna's first socks are called Murder Rih Wrote and are available in both men's and women's. The busy black-and-white-and-red-all-over design fits perfectly in this post-"Bitch Better Have My Money" video world. Go snap 'em up and/or see some close-ups at Stance. The full collection will drop this fall.
“She creatively pushes the boundaries in everything she does,” says Candy Harris, SVP for the company's women’s division. “It’s nice to work with out-of-the box ideas for our brand.” Harris added: There are very few women in fashion whose personal style can go from street to couture in a blink. She does it with such credibility and authenticity. It makes her an original.”
