Rihanna’s FENTY Collection: Revealed

Rihanna’s FENTY Collection: Revealed

Freakin’ FENTY-worthy fierce.

By Georgie Murray | 10th February 2020

From music to beauty and now fashion, it’s safe to say Rhianna is truly the fashion killa and killin’ all the games at play – I wouldn’t even be surprised if she’s a tennis or football pro next, it’s the only thing she hasn’t done yet. Keyword: yet.

After her first collections and beauty line impressing globally, she’s moved onto the next FENTY capsule and it’s just as fierce. Freakin’ FENTY-worthy fierce.

It’s funny to think the innocent Pon De Replay 2006 Rhianna gallivanting along the sand became such a strong force in the fashion industry and with the release of her R2-20 collection, she’s not here to play around, she’s here to win. She’s clearly not offering her umbrella anymore but instead stopping the music for all the right reasons and feeling like the only girl in the world. All I can say is, te amo.

The R2-20 collection has slight vibes of when the good girl went bad - leaving pretty and petite at the door. The collection is said to be inspired by expressions of freedom – collective, individual, creative; ‘’designed to be lived in not just looked at, the release is a musing on casual luxury and attitudinal day dressing.’’ (FENTY.com)

Visually, the collection boasts vibes of militaristic aesthetics met with edgy yet femme cuts. The colour palette is on-trend and in-suit with the forecasted upcoming trends: orange, greens and blues.

Surprisingly and unlike many notable labels, it’s all quite wearable – you wouldn’t have to be on the runway, or Rihanna herself to wear it. With basics such as turtlenecks, knit dresses and coats it’s so simple yet sexy.

The collection has been classified under four components: Casual Pop Classics, Punk Military, Outdoorsy and The Campaign.

Casual Pop Classics is just that – notes of old school pop fashion with everyday vibes, elevated. Fenty describes it as, “Taking it back to the old school, R2-20 reinvents casual pop classics. The peak-casual tracksuit is reimagined in luxury ribbed knit; a denim jacket takes the shape of a bomber with padded lining and an added hood. Low key glamour is the mood.’’

Punk Military again, is just that – military pieces but done punk to make you feel empowered. “Looks to stand tall and speak your truth in: the trench coat with khaki parka features and flap pockets; the khaki Corset Dress and matching pants lined with padding for inner strength; Parachute Boots that crumple up and down the calf. Functional and utilitarian, the Release encourages free movement and free thought.’’

Outdoorsy is also self-explanatory with pieces ideal for the cooler weather. Described as: ‘’ Free your mind in nature. 2-20 introduces FENTY’s first flat shoe, Hiking boot, with FENTY-imprinted soles. For total style protection, see the burnt orange windbreaker with satin velcro detailing. Prepare for the future – it’s yours.’’

The Campaign is made up of versatility and basics with an edge and speaks to everything Fenty. ‘’ Captured by Hong Kong born, London-based photographer Thurstan Redding, the campaign celebrates the power and freedom that creative talent brings with a cast of artists, dancers and musicians, living out their dreams with FENTY free spirit. Amy Sall is a cultural entrepreneur and independent scholar; Kai Isaiah-Jamal is a spoken word poet and trans visibility activist; Amrit is an artist, musician and painter; Alexandra is a journalist and documentary producer.’’
