Rihanna is set to debut her high-fashion line later this month
The 31-year-old R&B superstar has enjoyed significant success with her Fenty Beauty line, Puma collaboration and Savage x Fenty lingerie collection, and now Rihanna has announced that she will release a luxury fashion line and present her first collection, which will be branded ‘Fenty’, later this month in Paris, according to Business of Fashion.
The Work songstress – who is working with LVMH (Moet Hennessy – Louis Vuitton) to launch a luxury house under her name – revealed that designing the much-anticipated range has been an “incredibly special moment” for her.
Referring to LVMH Chairman and Chief Executive, Bernard Arnault, Rihanna said in a statement: “Designing a line like this with LVMH is an incredibly special moment for us. Mr Arnault has given me a unique opportunity to develop a fashion house in the luxury sector, with no artistic limits. I couldn’t imagine a better partner both creatively and business-wise, and I’m ready for the world to see what we have built together.”
Rihanna’s collection will include ready-to-wear clothing and accessories, including shoes, sunglasses and jewellery
LVMH – which already houses Fenty Beauty by Rihanna – is home to some of the world’s most prestigious brands including Christian Dior, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Louis Vuitton, and Arnault admitted that the partnership to create a high-fashion line happened “naturally” because the singer is a “true entrepreneur”.
He added: “Everybody knows Rihanna as a wonderful singer, but through our partnership at Fenty Beauty, I discovered a true entrepreneur, a real CEO and a terrific leader. She naturally finds her full place within LVMH.
“To support Rihanna to start up the Fenty Maison, we have built a talented and multicultural team supported by the group resources. I am proud that LVMH is leading this venture and wish it will be a great success.”
