All the photos from the Fenty launch cocktail party
On Wednesday evening, Rihanna revealed her LVMH-backed Fenty collection to the fashion world, namely industry veterans including Maria Grazia Chiuri, Olivier Rousteing, and Simon Porte Jacquemus.
Held at the new Fenty-pop up boutique in Paris’ Marais district, guests were able to view the new luxury maison, scheduled to drop on May 29.
The fashion line, as we now know, will be a direct-to-consumer model, with the ready-to-wear clothing and accessories dropping online and in pop-up stores every six to eight weeks.
Naturally, the signer-cum-make-up-and-beauty-entrepreneur wore one of her own designs to the event: a structured white blazer – in true Fenty style – worn without pants.
There had been speculation for some two years that Rihanna was working on the luxury label, and given the wild success of her makeup line, Fenty Beauty, and her lingerie label, Savage X Fenty, we can expect to see big things from the maison.
Rihanna is also the first woman to create an original brand with LVMH, and the first woman of colour at the helm of an LVMH maison.
