The singer appeared to reflect on her "final collection" with the brand...

Rihanna may have just confirmed that her latest Fenty Puma collection may have been her last.

During her interview at Vogue's Forces of Fashion Conference 2017, the 'Wild Thoughts' songstress discussed the show-stopping runway debut of her Summer '18 range.

The collection debuted in New York City during the style capital's Fashion Week in September, sandwiched between her annual Diamond Ball and the release of Fenty Beauty.

While previous Fenty Puma ranges have graced catwalks in Paris, Rihanna explained that New York was an "inevitable" destination for the new collection - which she referred to as her "final" with the brand.

"I loved Paris, but New York is where the story of Fenty Puma began," she explained.

"For my final collection with them... it wasn't even something to think twice about."

Rihanna was originally announced as Puma’s creative director in 2014, and released her first Fenty collection in 2016.

Popular items including her iconic slip-on sliders, her summery jelly slides and the award-winning Fenty creepers have since made the brand a worldwide success. 

The singer also confirmed that her aims in the fashion industry aren't restricted to one specific brand.

"I have long-term goals in fashion, but not so much with any one brand," the Bajan beauty told Vogue’s Hamish Bowle,"You just never know what's going to happen."

Rihanna's has previously worked on designer collaborations with brands including Stance, Christian Dior, Chopard and Manolo Blahnik.

Meanwhile, the starlet launched her hotly-anticipated Fenty Beauty 'Galaxy Collection' today (Friday 13th October).

The holiday-themed range is the second drop from Rihanna's widely-praised cosmetics brand.
