Rihanna is back and better than ever after taking a year off from New York Fashion Week with her collection Savage X Fenty. Every year designers, buyers, models, and fashion journalists come from all over the world to display and appreciate the innovative and artistic designs of the year. New York Fashion Week has paved the way for style visionaries everywhere and has been a staple not only in New York City but also in Paris, Milan, and London. Here is everything you need to know about Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty line.
What is Savage X Fenty by Rihanna?
Savage X Fenty is Rihanna’s all-inclusive lingerie line that she promises is affordable and for all body types. Bad girl Ri Ri wants every woman to feel included and not have to break the bank to do so. In an interview with Vogue, Rihanna delved into why she created the line “Women should be wearing lingerie for their damn selves. I want people to wear Savage X Fenty and think, I’m a bad bitch”. When Rihanna first came on the scene in 2005 she was a young stone washed jean wearing songstress. Over the years her style evolution has been one for the books. She was able to completely transform her look into the punky, trendy, one-of-a-kind style that many fans emulate. Rihanna first delved into the professional fashion world in 2011 when she paired up with Armani Jeans and Emporio Armani Underwear. She then partnered up with River Island in 2013 for a high fashion street line, became the spokesperson for Dior in 2015, and was announced as the creative director of Puma in 2016 where she created The Trainer by Fenty. The Puma shoe line where The Trainer was featured became a huge success. The same year Rihanna partnered with Manolo Blahnik to premiere an all denim sandal and boot line. The songstress has delved into other fashion sectors including a sunglass line with Dior, a sock line, a perfume line, has even launched her own beauty line Fenty Beauty. In other words, she knows exactly what she’s doing.
