The first digital magazine cover of the New York Times was recently launched and Rihanna graced it. The multi-award winning star had recently been busy, developing her brand and establishing ‘Fenty’ among the biggest names in the fashion industry.
In an interview with Jeremy O. Harris, she talked about her new clothing line, in collaboration with Moët Hennesy Louis Vuitton (LVMH). The clothing brand will go live on the 29th of May, and will be solely committed to online sales. With an intention of getting new designs monthly, she stated that there would be no runway shows or any traditional routine to purchase. “I want to be as disruptive as possible. The brand is not traditional. There is no runway show. It’s a new way of doing things because I believe that this is where fashion is going to go eventually.” She talked about her discovery to new things in the fashion industry, “I’m learning so much: about the tailoring, the fabric — I’m seeing fabrics that I’ve never seen in my life.”
She also denied collaborating with Lady Gaga in her upcoming album but is open to the possibility of it. There would also be no collaboration with drake, contrary to the speculation of fans. although she has no name for the upcoming project yet, although she stated there’s a name popping in her head when asked. “No, so far it’s just been R9,31 thanks to the Navy. I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this “R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?” How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?” R9 in truth is not a bad title for a Reggae album.
Working hard has been her watch word. When asked what the money she was earning stood for, if not as a motivation, she gave an excellent reply by saying, “The money means that I can take care of my family. The money means that I can facilitate the businesses that I want to. I can create jobs for other people. My money is not for me; it’s always the thought that I can help someone else or, in the future, for if I have kids. The world can really make you believe that the wrong things are priority, and it makes you really miss the core of life, what it means to be alive. It could literally be walking outside in the sun. That makes me happy. Like going to the grocery store — you know, there’s a cute little Jamaican market near where I live right now.”
Fans are anticipating Fenty music as well as the new Fenty clothing line, which is pocket friendly in comparison to other luxury brands.
