Rihanna’s FENTY x PUMA Revival: Unveiling ‘The Avanti’ Collection

MANILA, Philippines—Rihanna has returned to the PUMA family, this time as the Creative Director of FENTY x PUMA, marking the beginning of a multi-year partnership with an exciting lineup of product releases on the horizon. This revival of FENTY x PUMA seamlessly fuses PUMA’s rich sports legacy with Rihanna’s unparalleled influence in music, culture, and fashion.

Introducing the FENTY x PUMA Avanti, the inaugural footwear franchise born from this partnership. It defies convention by marrying the exquisite leather craftsmanship of PUMA’s King football boot with the iconic outsole of the heritage running shoe, Easy Rider.

Rihanna and PUMA have a storied history of reinventing sport-inspired fashion since their initial collaboration in 2015, which gave rise to the iconic Creeper. In the following years, they introduced numerous footwear and apparel collections, including the FENTY x PUMA trainer, the FENTY x PUMA fur slide, and more. With a remarkable presence in four fashion shows in both New York and Paris, FENTY x PUMA has played a pivotal role in elevating PUMA’s brand impact and relevance throughout the past decade.

Rihanna’s genuine passion for football and its profound cultural influence beyond the pitch served as the driving inspiration behind this unique footwear franchise. Her fresh interpretation of this timeless style opens the door to an exciting new era of sport-fashion collaborations with PUMA.

The partnership between Rihanna and PUMA, starting in 2015, has consistently pushed boundaries in sport-inspired fashion. The Avanti follows iconic releases like the Creeper and the FENTY x PUMA trainer, sparking excitement in the fashion world.
