Is Rihanna Launching A Luxury Fashion House?
Music mogul meets high fashion.
According to a report by WWD, sources are confirming that Rihanna is creating a luxury fashion house with LVMH, who owns luxury fashion houses such as Givenchy and Fendi.
Sources say that LVMH has been in hushed talks with Ri Ri regarding the launch of the fashion house. Sources also say that the company has dedicated staff who have previously worked with Louis Vuitton and Celine to help Rihanna and her team with the project. LVMH has not launched a fashion house from scratch in more than thirty years (since Christian Lacroix in 1987), so it’s a big deal for both parties involved.
Earlier this week the internet went into meltdown when Rihanna was spotted wearing a pair of sunglasses with Fenty engraved on the sides, leading to suspicion that she was launching an accessories line. However, sources say that the collection will include much more than just accessories, citing ready-to-wear, leather goods and accessories as products to be including in the collection. Rih is recognized globally as a fashion icon and has already immersed herself in the design world. She has already a widely successful and inclusive lingerie line, Savage X Fenty and has worked with Dior, River Island, and Puma.
It has been a busy week on the rumor mill for Rihanna with talks of the collection being launched simultaneously with her 9th studio album, which has been rumored to drop at some point in the upcoming year. The hard-working fashion, music and business mogul has already taken 2019 by storm.
