Rihanna sent us reeling when we learnt she was partnering with Bernard Arnault helmed luxury behemoth LVMH on her own luxury fashion brand, the first new Maison from the luxury conglomerate in 20 odd years and the first founded by a Woman of Colour. Fenty Maison is going the way of cult streetwear brands like SUPREME and Kith; instead of following a seasonal schedule like most traditional luxury brands, she opted for a very millenial model – shipping new collections in ‘drops’ . Our first look at FENTY Maison featured sharp tailoring, dramatic cuts and a mix and match approach to masculine and feminine, her second drop however shows a sexier side of Rihanna’s maison with on trend spaghetti-strap dresses with adjustable drawstring hems, edgy shield-like sunglasses, and stackable, twisted bangles perfect for your next holiday.
As always, some of our fave African Youtubers, namely Jackie Aina, Patricia Bright and Shalom Blac tried out some pieces from each drop. Here are their unvarnished opinions!
