FENTY Maison in social media:
Fenty challenges the rules of fashion- the maison forms the staples of a wardrobe. Born in Paris, made in Italy and France, Fenty lives online. Through this digital flagship, special edition releases are available on “See-Now-Wear-Now” model and will express a new facet of a woman and her wardrobe.
Each Release from the Maison explores several different fascinations that when combined reveal new facets of womanhood and the wardrobe itself.
The 5-19 drop
Rihanna dropped the first collection on May 22 and presented it at a pop-up store in Paris.
Women are forces of this earth. We are multifaceted, complex, vulnerable yet bulletproof, and FENTY speaks to all of our intricacies. Some days I want to be submissive, many days I’m completely in charge and most days I feel like being both….so it was imperative that we created a line versatile enough to embrace and celebrate us in that way. The collections are easily worn together and meant to be staples in our wardrobe. I’m just hyped to see people in my clothes, man.Rihanna: Founder, CEO and Artistic Director of FENTY
The promotional photoshoot took place in Barbados and stars Aaliyah James, Adriana Gonzalez, Cranston Mills, Dylan Chavles, Joani Johnson, Juno, Khiana Lowe, Laura Morgan, Magne Ndiaye, Morgan Connellee, Nesa, Wookou, Yanni Young, Ylang.
Rihanna was in charge of the whole campaign.
The 5-19 promotional video was released on May 20, 2019.
New promotional photos were released on the day the first drop was released. Inspired by the 1960s Black Is Beautiful movement and its most influential players, photographer Kwame Brathwaite and the Grandassa Models.
When I was coming up with the concept for this release, we were just digging and digging and we came up with these images – they made me feel they were relevant to what we are doing right now.Rihanna about 5-19 drop’s campaign
Does Rihanna want people to discover a political message as they shop her latest Fenty collection?
Well, I don’t know if it’s political so much as embracing the fact that people should be more aware. But definitely, we want people to see the parallels between what was then and what this is now, in a modern way.
The 6-19 drop
Available starting June 19 in two different roll-outs, this new release marks a new facet of a woman and her wardrobe, exploring items intended for escape, intentionally made for ease of travel and rendered in light textiles with bright hues and eye catching prints.
The collection sees fearlessly decorative dresses that hug the body tight, reinterpretation of classic jewelry styles, shoes with the new signature T- Heel and a shape of sunglasses: the Technomask.On July 10th, new summer dresses will be introduced along with the oversized T-shirts championing the Rihanna’s immigrant experience from Barbados, and futuristic laser cut sunglasses style that collapses straight down: the Centerfold.
The 8-19 release
Long thought of as common, cotton jersey is transformed into a source of sophistication, freedom, and surprise in Release 8-19. Jersey blazers are oversized and cinched at the waist, allowing for movement.
Elsewhere, the fabric is matched with satin elevating its casual tradition. These masculine-interpreted pieces are juxtaposed by beautiful leather, knitwear, and sheer jersey separates that highlight the body.
Release 8-19 also introduces the Corset Boot with a T-heel. Recalling the Maison’s signature shape, it is rendered in both jersey and rubber with a top hook closure, and is joined by Date Night pumps that literally twist the masculine silhouette.
Accessories-wise, pearls become a symbol of current desire, while FENTY’s Centerfold glasses are continued in a new jet black.
The 9-19 release
TAKE UP SPACE is a call to action: embrace your role, vision and power within the evolving workplace. Make your presence known, with purpose. Express your identity, no matter your gender, shape, size and background. Claim your own success.
Blazers tread the line between top and outerwear, others own the signature Fenty corseted body, with sharp shoulders.
A checked, boiled-wool jacket meets a statement graphic tee to set the style pace for contemporary visions of a mobile workforce.
Strong from behind, the new Fenty POWER POINT pumps 105 reveal an unexpectedly thin profile, walking a sexy office attitude.
From confident motif of the British banker uniform, to synonymous with the mafia and jazz era musicians, the pinstripe has a new arrival for 2019.
FENTY’s signature oversized shirt evolves to relaxed outerwear with exciting hidden details. Layered over a poplin hoodie, the reversible olive-green bomber turns to announce its neon orange lining.
