Along with being an eight-time Grammy Award winner and the top selling digital artist of all time, Rihanna is a style icon who recently teamed up with Stance Socks to create her own line of signature socks. Rihanna, who is notorious for her edgy streetwear and glamorous red carpet looks, is Stance’s latest spokesperson – or “Punk and Poet” as the brand likes to call it – and contributing creative director. Rihanna’s partnership with Stance is sure to transform socks from an everyday essential we don’t think about into a fashion accessory we can’t live without.
To celebrate the collaboration, Stance Socks has launched a limited-edition “Murder Rih Wrote” collection of crew-cut and over-the-knee socks for men and women, which are available at Shopping Blitz. The socks display “Murder Rih Wrote” in newsprint typography and feature horror movie poster art. Several other collections from Rihanna are still in the works, and the label plans to release 18 more styles in September and a holiday collection in November.
Candy Harris, the vice president of the Stance Socks women’s division, spoke to Vogue about the collaboration:
“I know a lot of people are probably saying ‘Why socks?’ And that’s really the beauty of it,” Harris said, “and 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.”
If anyone can make socks a fashion accessory to think about, it’s definitely Rihanna. Just by looking at the first collection, you can tell that Rihanna’s sock styles are certainly an exciting and bold accessory that can transform any ordinary outfit into a fashion statement.

We hope you enjoyed your Independence Day Celebrations, America – and keep spreading those #goodvibes!
It’s that time again, the season dreaded by children and teachers around the globe. Back to school! Those frenzied days when flip-flops and swimsuits are traded in for backpacks, loafers and binders. We feel your pain and while we’d love to hold onto summer as long as we can it’s time to plan for fall.
You Are Never To Old To Rock A Cool Backpack
My favorite consolation as a kid when school shopping was the chance to pick out a brand backpack. Each year I’d choose a different style to match my new persona. Which of course had changed drastically during the summer months. The only thing that never changed was that it had to be a JanSport. That being said I got a huge kick when I realized that JanSport was still rocking the backpack world and creating cooler and funkier designs than ever before. Because let’s face having the right backpack really can make the difference between social escalation and isolation, in other words sitting at the cool kid’s table or being regulated to no man’s land next to the bathroom.
The Right Footwear Can Make The Difference
So many kids and parents focus more on clothing and forget the importance of footwear. The right shoes can help a kid make the soccer team, strut their stuff in the hallways and often garner the confidence to create lasting friendships. My go-to choice for versatile footwear are styles that can be dressy, sporty and casual. New trends this year include hi-top sneakers and tall lace-up boots. And don’t forget to include feel-good accessories like funky socks and killer headphones for listening to your ready-made back to school playlists.
