Ever since Rihanna announced that she would soon be launching a third line—following her wildly successful Savage x Fenty lingerie and Fenty Beauty makeup brands—we've been on our toes in anticipation. Disclaimer: The Fenty line hasn't officially launched quite yet, but Rihanna has finally shared a glimpse of what her new luxury ready-to-wear label, created in partnership with LVMH, will look like ahead of the full collection drop later this week.
In an exclusive spread with TheNew York Times' T Magazine, Rihanna models a handful of standout looks she designed herself, and, true to form, her designs hit on a handful of the biggest and boldest trends of the year. Despite outfitting herself in a range of silhouettes from beige-toned suiting to double denim, there's one overarching silhouette that we spotted throughout: a structured bodice. She told The Times, "I love a corset. We put a corset in a suit, a dress, a shirt, a denim jacket, and a T-shirt dress."
How Rihanna's already wearing it:
Flipping through the images and looking at the launch video shared on the official Fenty Instagram account, the line is teeming with these corset-inspired bodices. When asked about what inspired these shapes, she shared, "I use myself as the muse. It's sweatpants with pearls or a masculine denim jacket with a corset. I feel like we live in a world where people are embracing every bit of who they are."
Well, from what we can see, Fenty is about to be every bit as disruptive (read: diverse and inclusive) to the womenswear market as her first two brands are.
