Editor’s Notes: Rihanna’s historic first Fenty collection under the LVMH umbrella is finally here.
Yesterday, Rihanna debuted the full collection, titled “Release 5-19, in Paris ahead of a pop-up store opening in the city’s Le Marais district this Friday. The collection favors silhouettes with big shoulders and cinched waists. The power suits even have matching waist bags to accentuate curves. Salmon, camel, white, and raw denim make up the simple color palette. Futuristic sunglasses and sandals complete the collection.
Prices range from $200 for a T-shirt to $1,500 for outerwear. As reported by The New York Times, Rihanna knows the collection will be unattainable for most of her fans, explaining, “Luxury couldn’t be something that cost 30 bucks. It has to be something more. The lower priced pieces are in there, too, and that was so important to me, but so was building a business based on quality. And real quality costs.”
