New York Fashion week comes to a close with the singing sensation and ultimate female entrepreneur, Rihanna.
NYFW showcased SS20 collections, making it just that little bit easier to prolong summer, as we welcome back the biggest designers in the industry and more iconic shows than ever before. Amongst those big names was the Barbadian singer turned fashion designer, Robyn Rihanna Fenty.
The latest Savage X Fenty collection is highly anticipated after her astonishing show Tuesday night. Guests were prohibited from using phones, so anyone hoping for a glimpse was left disappointed. Only attendees were able to see the collection at the time, underlining a sense of intrigue and exclusivity, that felt like no other show.
With special appearances from Gigi and Bella Hadid and performances from the likes of DJ Khaled and Halsey, it’s promising to be the lingerie runway to watch after the disastrous fall of Victoria’s Secret.
Another famous face spotted was Parris Goebel – choreographer of the Barbadian superstar’s show – who has worked with artists such as Janet Jackson, Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj. Parris is not only exceptional at what she does, but she represents everything the Savage X Fenty collection is about.
Savage x Fenty aims to ‘celebrate everybody’, having been available in sizes 32A to 42H since its launch last year. Yet, Rihanna’s inclusivity goes deeper than sizing. The 31-year old stays true to her word, and just like her make up range, has catered her lingerie to suit all skin tones. She steers away from the generic ‘nude’ or black bra, and integrates colours that are wearable on all skin tones. On the new collection, Rihanna said, “we want you to feel sexy and have fun doing it”.
You can watch the show from 20th September on Amazon Prime. In the meantime, you can now shop this fabulous collection over at the Fenty website.
