Rihanna was spotted out and about in New York yesterday:

Rihanna has continued to flaunt one amazing winter look after another here recently. We last caught up with her and her best friend while they were out and about in New York yesterday. Rihanna sported a floor length coat from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2015 Collection that really turned heads. Today the two were spotted together again, only this time — the gal pals wore matching fur coats! Seeing as blue is my personal favorite color I’m excited to reveal the details on this look, so let’s discuss!

Rihanna and Melissa both looked darling in this Oversized Fur Jacket from the fashion label, Kye’s Fall 2014 Collection. Now you may not be familiar with this designer label, so let me tell you a little bit about the curator behind the brand.

The label was created by a young lady named Kathleen Kye who was born in Michigan but now lives in Korea. At 23 years old Kathleen was the youngest member in the class of 2011 MA menswear program at the Central St. Martins in London. Kye first revealed herself before media at CSM BA graduate fashion shows three years ago, in 2009, surprising with a unique collection overflowing with personality, called the Body Collection. Kye’s inspiration sources for her collection are coming from her dreams, streets and friends.

She believed she could provide a new dimension in fashion design by becoming a pop icon. In 2010, she appeared in a Korean cable TV program called Follow Me that introduced a new social networking format in fashion styling and design. She also ultimately launched her KYE brand that our fashion icon is now wearing!

Rihanna then wore her straight leg jeans from Ètoile Isabel Marant. Her $268.45 white stretch cotton straight leg jeans from Isabel Marant Étoile feature a concealed front fastening, belt loops, and a five pocket design. She was spotted wearing them before at Gjelina Restaurant back in August. Rihanna completed her look with Suede Manolo Blahnik Lace-Up Pumps.

Rihanna wore a few accessories that we were able to spot ; which included her Kentshire Diamond Necklace and a leather backpack. Rihanna’s $366.89 Mini Diesel Karola Backpack is 100% leather and features metal rivets.

Let’s delve a little into M$$’ look for the day. As we mentioned previously, she wore the same FW13 KYE Oversized Fur Jacket that Rihanna wore. The two both wore white jeans; however Mel chose Frame Denim’s White Skinny Le Jeanne Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans. The jeans feature a frayed, distress look and offer five pockets. She completed this look with a cool pair of Nike Sneakers. A lot of you have been wondering where these were from so I’m happy to have tracked them down! The $109.99 Nike Flystepper 2K3 Premium Men’s Shoe features a futuristic high-top silhouette inspired by the Nike 2K3 hoops shoe. A dual-strap system locks down the foot for extra stability. The colorway that she wore is called,Hyper Colbalt.
