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.
