The rumors have been around for months, but Rihanna and LVMH kept their lips sealed. Not anymore. The French luxury conglomerate has confirmed this Friday that it will create a new luxury house centered on the Barbados-born popstar. The brand, which will debut in the Spring of 2019, will be called Fenty -- as her previous collaboration with Puma, her beauty brand Fenty Beauty and the lingerie label Savage x Fenty.
Rihanna to launch luxury maison with LVMH
“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”, said Rihanna in the statement.
Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH, added: “Everybody knows Rihanna as a wonderful singer, but through our partnership at Fenty Beauty, I discovered a true entrepreneur, a real CEO and a terrific leader. She naturally finds her full place within LVMH. To support Rihanna to start up the Fenty Maison, we have built a talented and multicultural team supported by the Group resources. I am proud that LVMH is leading this venture and wish it will be a great success.”
