Rihanna Launches Her New Fenty Fashion Line In Paris

Rihanna hosted a cocktail party to celebrate the debut of much anticipated clothing line Fenty, and the opening of her exclusive ephemeral Fenty boutique in Paris on Wednesday (May 22). 

This is a huge deal for Rihanna. Not only is she the first woman to helm a luxury brand at LVMH, Black or otherwise, she is also the youngest.

It would appear that a lot of people are confused by this label.

Most are wary of the price points saying that $224 for a t-shirt is too expensive, but considering this is a luxury brand, are we really surprised?

This isn’t a Rihanna x Boohoo collection, where she has attributed her name to stock already in the warehouse.

This is a brand that will stand alongside the likes of Stella McCartney, Celine and Raf Simons in luxury department stores.

While I love the strong lean into tailoring for this debut collection,  I have to admit I was expecting two things:

1. For this collection to be more sporty, feminine luxe in a similar vein to Off-White, and

2. To like it more.

I know a lot of people will go into auto-like mode because it’s Rihanna. but browsing the lookbook, the only thing I see myself in are the blazers, especially the pink one.

The rest appears a little to boxy for my personal style.

Even the dress Rihanna wore for the event didn’t excite me.

It’s not a bad collection, I was just expecting to be swept off my feet.

    I love the white shirt and pink trousers. But why bother I can’t afford any of these 🤣😂😭😭 i think if you invest in something that expensive it must be perfect. I don’t know if these clothes reach that level.

    Do we suppose to like it just because it’s from Rihanna?

  3. Guest May 29, 2019 at 11:09 pm #

    She is definitely not a fashion designer. Nothing new or original or even good here.

    Rihanna’s style has been dead and gone.

    I like a few pieces from the collection but nothing sticking out.

    the collection feels very JLO

      Really? I don’t see JLo in any of these

    Never thought I would say this of Rihanna’s fashion line

    I am slightly disappointed. Nothing new under the sky. Kind of Nicholas Guesquierre at Balenciaga basic vibes.

  9. Guest May 28, 2019 at 8:28 pm #

    This looks basic
    Does she have what it takes to run a luxurious fashion house. She has no sewing skills or knowledge of dress making.

    Wearing high fashion clothes and being a fashion icon is one thing, making high fashion clothes is another thing

    You’d think she’d be a little more happy at such a big event, but it looks like she doesn’t want to be there at all.
    The styles, nah, not my cup of tea and the prices are definitely not!

    It’s cool but it all feels like stuff from when she was uncomfortable with her weight and also 1000s of other labels are offering similar looks and some of them a lot cheaper so where’s the buy?

  12. Guest May 28, 2019 at 5:58 pm #

    It’s not even looks good on Rihanna… I would never wear any of these…

    Totally not going to be my kind of thing. For the most part I find them quite unappealing.

    It’s the opposite for me. I didn’t expect to like it and I love some of the clothes, the oversize shirt and the brown jacket, I saw it on a French journalist, it’s gorgeous! I’m not suprised by the price, I was even expected something more expensive.
