Rihanna has been reaping her rewards lately. The “We Found Love” singer’s album dropped on the 21st, and fans couldn’t have been more excited. She’s been on tour overseas and has been popping out videos and singles like a mad woman. Fans obsess over her style, and now the pop star can add designer to her resume.
According to Elle UK, Rihanna collaborated with Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans on a capsule collection which is supposed to hit stores worldwide. If you love Rihanna’s daring style and fashion edge, then you need to rock this collection.
It has two jeans options that scream rock star, a sexy, silky skinny jean and a kickass boy-cut jean. One t-shirt design has Rihanna’s face on it, and her love for animal print is also included. One t-shirt even has the Armani signature eagle and Rihanna’s signature “R” fused together to allow fans to get the best of both worlds.
The Armani Underwear designs add the perfect amount of sex appeal to the collaboration including two styles of lace-y sets in navy and pearl. Rihanna rocked her own designs in the Armani campaign ad, how cool is that?
I love Rihanna for this, and she is smart to capitalize on the collaboration when she did. Her album is out, and a clothing line now follows right behind it! She is gorgeous, and although I’m sad to see the red hair leave, her brown hair is okay. But I fell in love with the blonde short crop she rocked in the Armani campaign, and if she kept it, I wouldn’t be mad!
It’s actually about time for Rihanna to start designing in my opinion, because if Jessica Simpson can do it and not even have an album out, Rihanna can do it ten times better. Now aside from Talk That Talk, she can walk the walk and put other singer-turned-designers to shame.
I feel like she had a part in the overall look of the designs, and I can actually picture Rihanna wearing her own stuff, which is more than I can say about Beyonce’s line. (Sorry Bey!) You can view the whole collection here, and click with caution — it’ll be addicting!
