You better have your money ready for Rihanna’s latest collaboration with the Southern California-based sock brand Stance. As RiRi continues to blow us with her unexpected ensembles and badass music videos, we think it’s safe to say that she’s now the new leader of the group against the anti-sock movement.
Stance Socks revealed her to be their latest “Punk and Poet” (the brand’s unique name for spokesperson) and contributing Creative Director. (She was previously named the same for Puma.)
For a little over a thousand pesos, you get a limited edition pair of socks...if you're fast enough. I think these pieces will sell like hotcakes when the full collection titled Murder Rih Wrote drops this September. In the meantime, the brand gives the fans a taste by releasing two styles from the collection, which you can now purchase at Stance.com.
The BBHM-themed designs feature horror movie poster art and newsprint cutouts. “She’s one of the few women in fashion whose style can go from street to couture in the blink of an eye,” says Candy Harris, vice president of the women’s division of Stance Socks. “I know a lot of people are probably saying ‘Why socks?’ And that’s really the beauty of it. That’s why Rihanna’s perfect, because she’s constantly innovating and looking to see what’s next. Socks are not really a trend; they’re a fashion staple.”
After all, Bad Gal RiRi calls the shots; don't act like you forgot.
