When it first launched in May, Rihanna's new Fenty label was a game-changer for luxury fashion. Rather than adhere to the seasonal calendar, the pop star announced her line would only be available on the Fenty website through a series of drops released throughout the year.
Three collections in and we're starting to really see RiRi's vision take hold. Her latest drop, titled "Release 8-19," was revealed today and is available now on Fenty.com. While the first collection focused on tailoring and the second was big on prints, the third lineup is all about shape and construction.
Cotton jersey, a fabric considered by some to be rather basic, gets the Rihanna style treatment thanks to sexy silhouettes and cutouts. The material is seen in double-breasted blazers with super cinched waists, in bustier tops, and sheer long-sleeved dresses with thigh-high slits. Some other standout pieces include satin jackets with double lapels, leather skinny pants with slits, and plunging knit dresses with buttons across the front.
But perhaps one of the most striking pieces is Fenty's first boot style: the Corset boot with a T-heel and angular shape. The shoe has fastenings and hooks all across the upper that quite literally recalls a corset top, and comes in the aforementioned jersey fabrics as well as a sleek rubber material. A "Date Night" satin pump is also available, which is full of twists and asymmetrical straps that one could definitely see RiRi in on a night out in the city.
Finally, the accessories lineup includes a statement pearl drop earring and arm cuff that bring an elevated yet refined finishing touch to the sexy street-style pieces on offer. Their popular oversized Centerfold sunglasses also now come in a jet black iteration. And if you didn't get the cinched-waist memo the first time, an extra-large belt is also available for all your killer hourglass looks.
"Released 8-19" is available now on Fenty.com.
