Rihanna Channels Vintage Mall Punk in Prada and a Cramps T-shirt
Rihanna and A $ SAP Rocky took to the 90-degree streets of New York City, and last night she continued her streak of insanely perfect outfits. The unequivocal legend was spotted wearing a mint green textured-leather Prada bob, featuring the triangular logo which is now apparently the hottest hair accessory of the season and matching sunglasses (at night). The bucket hat itself has made a comeback since its heyday in the late 90s / early 2000s, when it was slightly more pedestrian – this was the sartorial provenance of skaters, ravers and other teens. assorted males who smelled of grass. Thanks to brands like Prada and celebrities like Billie Eilish, the bob is pure luxury in the Year of Our Lord 2021.
She also wore a vintage t-shirt and added style with another keepsake: the long pearl necklace, wrapped several times around her neck. At the time, these necklaces were associated with a giant flower brooch; instead, Rihanna chose to show her love for the Cramps. The iconic punk band was active in the 80s and 90s, and is credited with creating the psychobilly genre, a musical coat rack of ska, punk and rockabilly, fusing inspiration from classic horror films and death metal. This writer had her own psychobilly moment in her late teens, so it’s clear Rihanna is taking the scene from a high aesthetic point of view. Is she a fan? Does it matter when she looks this perfect?
Meanwhile, she completed her look with a gold pendant necklace from Briony Raymond, bootcut jeans, a white croco leather clutch and white pumps with a pointed toe box for her date night, even graciously signing some fan autographs before leaving with A $ AP in his pristine white Rolls Royce.
