Rihanna Unveils Her Second FENTY Collection, the "Release 6-19"
With fitting images photographed by the Bad Gal herself.
It isn’t like we didn’t already know that Rihanna can do it all, but with the sophomore launch of FENTY, the brand’s artistic director is reminding us of her multifacetedness both as a creative and as a woman. With its New York City pop-up opening earlier this week, the LVMH maison has unveiled its next limited-edition collection, “Release 6-19,” with fitting images lensed by none other than Rihanna herself.
While FENTY’s inaugural range is predominantly made up of contemporary denim silhouettes and sleek suiting, the new collection taps into a summery aesthetic that suggests a notion of escape and travel. Different materials such as knit, satin and jersey are employed for crafting body-hugging dresses coming in a sunset-inspired color palette — a gamut of olive green, teal, tangerine orange and fuchsia — as well as eye-catching prints. Designed for the free-spirited, the vacation-ready pieces are created with asymmetrical hemlines and cinched detailing, too. According to a press release, the release also includes a range of oversized graphic T-shirts that evoke the memories of Rihanna’s birthplace, Barbados.
The imagery also offers us a look at the new accessories ranging from eyewear to footwear, to jewelry. In particular, two new sunglass styles have been introduced to this collection, namely the face-shielding Techno Mask and the foldable Centerfold frames.
FENTY is also expanding its highly sought-after footwear offering by introducing the new T-heel, described by the brand as a “sexy, strappy sandal.” On the jewelry side of things, Rihanna devotees can expect to get their hands on statement designs coming in the form of pearl-embellished belly chains, twisted bangles and more splurge-worthy items.
“Release 6-19” will become available in two rollouts starting June 19. Shop online at fenty.com and in-store at FENTY’s NYC pop-up at The Webster – find more details about the temporary retail experience here.
