According to an official press release, you can look forward to ready-to-wear, accessories, footwear and eyewear from the LVMH-owned house.
Since the brand identity is intrinsically tied to Rihanna’s versatile style, it comes as no surprise that she is the creative director. It’s also important to note that her stylist Jahleel Weaver serves as the label’s style director. Key pieces in the campaign include white separates such as an oversized denim jacket and additional all-white outerwear selections. Rih also makes an appearance in the campaign, she’s seen wearing a dark blue corset dress created with Japanese denim.
In the previously mentioned release, the global star shares her thoughts on the highly anticipated launch of the brand:
“Women are forces of this earth. We are multifaceted, complex, vulnerable yet bulletproof, and FENTY speaks to all of our intricacies. Some days I want to be submissive, many days I’m completely in charge and most days I feel like being both….so it was imperative that we created a line versatile enough to embrace and celebrate us in that way. The collections are easily worn together and meant to be staples in our wardrobe. I’m just hyped to see people in my clothes, man.”
Fenty will officially launch on May 29 at FENTY.com. Stay tuned here as additional news becomes available on the fashion house’s first drop. Check out the campaign below.
