It hasn’t been a week of 2020 and it’s already looking so sexy! And people can thank Rihanna and Adam Selman for that. The American designer just unveiled his new collaborative line with Barbadian superstar’s lingerie brand, Savage x Fenty. He’s the first to ever work with the “Work” singer on a capsule collection for her label.
“2020 coming in 🔥🔥🔥 honored to be the first collaborator w @savagexfenty and the ultimate @badgalriri #savagexadamselman GET IT,” Selman posted on Instagram. Rihanna has long been friends with the designer, even sporting some of his looks both on the red carpet and on stage. In fact, Selman designed the singer’s now-iconic 20s-inspired Swarovski-encrusted gown during the 2014 CFDA Awards. The look then catapulted Rihanna into fashion icon status. And it was long rumored that the dress was sewn directly on her body, allowing the piece to embrace all of the singer’s curves. Now, the two have collaborated once more, this time, as fellow designers.
“Rihanna and I have worked together for seven years, and we’re really close at this point. It was sometime early in the year, and we hugged each other at a party and she came up close to me and said, ‘You have to do Savage x Fenty with me.’ Then she walked away. Two days later, she texted me to say she was serious.” Selman shared about how this collaboration came about. The collection featured mainly red-hued pieces within a variety of materials and garments. And while Savage x Fenty has gone extremely risque in exposing skin before, this new line takes it up a notch. Some of the bra pieces literally expose the beasts, showing off the heart-shaped pasties that Selman made exclusively for the capsule line. Hearts are part of the designer’s signature motifs and he peppered the collection with a lot of them. Some pieces feature mesh material with heart-shaped prints being the only cover-ups they have. While other hearts appear as buckles for harnesses and other lingerie pieces. They all add an element of quirk to the line, making it less severely sexual and more romantic and fashionable. They go well with the general vibe of Riri’s brand, which is luxury lingerie with modern and urban twists.
Staying true to the brand’s ethos, the line covers a range of sizes. But perhaps its diverse selection of materials used in the collection might prove more fascinating. Metallic lingerie offers a shining alternative to the usual silks and satins in lingerie. Though they seem almost fetishistic in shimmering texture and smooth finish, they also look entirely sophisticated. Some zipped-up variations, particularly in the breasts area, add a seductive twist to the mix too. Meanwhile, red lace pieces keep it chic and classic, almost adding an American boudoir touch to the whole line. And some satin bows and minimal frills keep up the quirky vibe too. Savage x Fenty’s collaborative line with Adam Selman is now available on the brand’s official website. What do you think of the collection? Are you bold enough to wear any of the pieces?
