Sorry Rob Kardashian, there's a new sock line in town and it has Bad Gal written all over it (literally!).
Rihanna has partnered with Stance Socks to release a limited edition collection of chic knee-high and crewneck foot designs, cheekily titled "Murder Rih Wrote." With a kitchy black-white-and-red pattern featuring newspaper typography and horror movie poster-inspired images, the socks are, well, very RiRi. Stance plans to release 18 styles from Rihanna's collection in September, with a subsequent holiday line to be unveiled in November.
"I know a lot of people are probably saying ‘Why socks?' And that's really the beauty of it," Candy Harris, a VP for the Stance, told Vogue. "[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." (We'd have to agree!)
