Rihanna launched her Fenty X Puma Spring 2018 collection at New York Fashion Week on Monday with some serious biker glamour. 

The runway saw motocross riders somersaulting through the air and flying over pink mountains as the Park Avenue Armory in New York was transformed into a pink desert with glittery sand dunes.


The models were dressed in motocross-inspired bodysuits, biker shorts, oversized parkas and deep-cut swimwear. The sporty collection included neoprene, nylon and leather ensembles in dark blue, military green and red hues. Most looks finished with heeled flip-flops.

The singing sensation's collection had a strong ‘90s feel, with male models wearing oversized coats with buckle detail paired with oversized baggy pants in different color nylons.


The lineup of models included some of the best from the industry like Taylor Hill, Joan Smalls and Victoria’s Secret veteran Adriana Lima.

There were pretty big names who were seated in the audience too, like the stage and screen star Whoopi Goldberg, plus-size model Ashley Graham and rappers Big Sean, Fabolous and Cardi B.

The show was Rihanna's fourth collection in collaboration with Puma.


Earlier in the week, the pop singer debuted her Fenty Beauty line which has been receiving great reviews from the critics, beauty bloggers, and her contemporaries. 

Rihanna is among more than 100 designers who are debuting their latest creations at New York Fashion Week. This year, the fashion week wraps up a day earlier on Wednesday as London Fashion Week is scheduled to start from the day next.
