Last week, it was officially announced that Rihanna would be joining the luxury fashion house of LVMH. Becoming the first black woman to partner with the brand in 30 years, Rihanna is making sure to kick things off with a bang.
In her latest interview with T Magazine, the Bajan songstress explained what to expect in her new endeavor:
“I’ve been slowly evolving throughout the fashion world. First wearing it, buying it, being recognized for my style and then collaborating with brands,” she said. “I never just wanted to put my name on something and sell my license. I’m very hands-on, so I wanted to take it slowly and gain respect as a designer. I already had a relationship with them after Versailles campaign and the makeup line, so they extended the offer to me and it was a no-brainer because LVMH is a machine. Bernard Arnault was so enthusiastic; he trusted me and my vision.”
“Every collaboration I did outside of music, I used Fenty so that you didn’t have to hear the word ‘Rihanna’ every time you saw something that I did,” she continued.
Rihanna’s forthcoming Fenty line is expected to drop this Spring 2019. Be sure to check out her spread in T Magazine.
