What's "R8?" Rihanna Has A Sock Line Called "Murder Rih Wrote"

Rihanna teams up with Stance to create graphic socks.

Rihanna is using her experience as women’s creative director at Puma and putting her Fashion Icon award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America to good use. She joined forces with Stance as a contributing creative director to launch a new line of sock-ware that combines newsprint typography style with horror movie poster art. The result?

As part of a three-year deal, Riri will act as an ambassador for the brand and debut an entire line come this fall. To wet our feet, the “Bitch Better Have My Money” songstress is making a splash, sharing two limited edition styles of socks available today ranging from $26-$30 a pair.

“I’ve had a great relationship with Stance for a long time and ‎I am happy to be working with them on such a fun and creative project,” Rihanna said in a statement.

“She creatively pushes the boundaries in everything she does,” said Candy Harris, senior vice president of Stance’s women’s division. “It’s nice to work with out-of-the box ideas for our brand.”

Meanwhile, Rihanna’s latest studio record remains nowhere to be seen. Perhaps she’s putting the finishing touches on it, or perhaps she’s being pulled in too many directions to focus on the impending project and see it to completion. Or maybe she just needs to get her footing?
