Rihanna will show her first collection for the new label, which will be branded Fenty, on May 22 in Paris. It includes ready-to-wear, accessories, sunglasses, jewellery and shoes, and will be the first fashion brand launched from scratch by LVMH since Christian Lacroix was founded in 1987.
Rihanna told Business of Fashion, 'Designing a line like this with LVMH is an incredibly special moment for us. Mr Arnault has given me a unique opportunity to develop a fashion house in the luxury sector, with no artistic limits. I couldn’t imagine a better partner both creatively and business-wise, and I’m ready for the world to see what we have built together.'
