The lovely Rihanna has collaborated with Armani to create two capsule collections : an Armani Jeans and Emporio Armani Underwear line.
The fashion savvy singer's collection for Armani Jeans mirrors her own offstage look, featuring denim, tops, a canvas leopard print bag and relaxed leather biker jackets. The black leather jackets are multi-zipped and multi-pocketed but washed down for a vintage, beat effect, with a similar aethetic to the denim in RiRi’s recent video shoot for current hit We Found Love. The denim comes in two fits – skinny and boyfriend – both are washed down to give a casual feel to the look, coming in blue and black with a fabric tie bandana style belt featuring on one of the pairs. Rihanna considers the jeans to be her favourite pieces from the collection, because they have “a slightly rocky feel, fabulously sexy with a strong, masculine edge”. The racer back vest tops hang loose and low. One features a stylised yet recognisable print of Rihanna’s face imposed over a tinted leopard design, while the other sees the singer’s R logo combined with the Armani eagle logo.
That same logo features on the cute drawstring bags in which her Emporio Armani Underwear sets are sold in. Take a peek inside to see lacy bra and knicker sets in either bold cobalt blue or pearly gray. On the straps of the bras is the motto "Rihanna for Emporio Armani" and a cameo of the singer’s face appears alongside the logo on the back fastening. Rihanna is currently the face and body of Emporio Armani Underwear, and has starred in steamy campaigns for the Armani brand.
Both collections are set to hit stores this month and if they are a success, which I don't doubt for a second, we will see this collaboration lasting for the foreseeable future.
