Fenty is putting its best foot forward yet again.

The fashion label helmed by singer and actress Rihanna has teamed up with footwear designer Amina Muaddi for a just-released shoe collection, the follow-up to the duo's first collaboration that launched in July.

Fenty, an LVMH-owned fashion brand, and Jordanian-Romanian designer Muaddi unveiled the results of their second collection on Thursday, November 12, with the drop encompassing four new styles that start from $700.

A square-toed slingback comes complete with delicate pleated leather, while a pointed pump is finished with strings that lace up to the mid-calf.

A sandal, meanwhile, features alternating diamante and satin straps that thread up the leg, while a latticed stiletto also features trailing ribbons that can be tied underneath the knee.

“I wanted to create footwear that represented the muse and the brand: strong, but refined and feminine,” said Muaddi in a statement.

The collection, titled 11-20, is currently available on the Fenty website, and will launch on the websites of Farfetch and Level Shoes on Saturday, November 14.

Fenty and Muaddi's first collaboration proved a commercial success, with all four styles swiftly selling out. On the back of the first collection, Muaddi will be named Collaborator of the Year at the annual Footwear News Achievement Awards – the shoe industry's equivalent of the Oscars – which will take place on Tuesday, December 8.

Muaddi, who grew up between Jordan, Italy and Romania, turned to footwear after a brief stint working as a stylist for titles such as GQ US and L’Uomo Vogue. She co-founded the brand Oscar Tiye when she was 26 and, on leaving that, launched her eponymous label in 2018.

Her designs have been sported by Dua Lipa, Demi Lovato, Kendall Jenner and, naturally, Rihanna.
