Well folks, it’s finally here! Today, Rihanna debuted her highly-anticipated first collection for her new luxury ready-to-wear line, Fenty. It’s quite a historic release—marking the first time a woman of color is leading a brand under the world’s biggest luxury retail group, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. The industry is now abuzz at what the popstar-turned-designer has to offer in her latest endeavor.

Vogue.com was the first to post the entire lookbook up on their site, which features 18 head-to-toe ensembles. They also revealed that instead of following the standard seasonal structure, Rihanna plans to just drop her latest products randomly, similarly to how she releases her music. This effectively means that she won’t be making an appearance in Paris Fashion Week anytime soon.

The collection features familiar styles and silhouettes that the style icon herself donned through the years. In fact, Riri was already teasing her line even prior to this release, posting images of her in a monochrome tan pantsuit with fanny-pack and an oversized denim dress on her Instagram account. Both outfits are included in the lookbook. At her launch in Paris today, she wore the first look—a broad-shouldered coatdress in stark white.

Here, she combined tailoring and streetwear in a nice balance of structure and sportiness. The color palette stayed largely neutral with pastel pink, tan and ecru. Her plays on the white shirt exude a more refined appeal while the cocoon-shaped Japanese denim outerwear adds a tinge of industrial chic to the mix. Similarly to her highly successful Savage x Fenty lingerie line, the brand caters to women (and men) of different body sizes as well. See the entire collection in the gallery below.

Now that Rihanna has dropped her first fashion line, fans now anticipate her upcoming album, which she says will be released pretty soon. Though there are no details yet as to the title of the record and its release date, she did confirm that her dominant genre this time around will be reggae. For now, expect her collection to be available online on May 29, 2019.
