The 31-year-old Barbadian fashion designer added, “I think tonight was just one of those experiences that I wanted people to feel that energy. I wanted them to feel all the different body types, all the different women in different stages of their womanhood.”
Rihanna’s highly anticipated runway comes at a time when the brand snagged $50 million investment last month from rapper Jay-Z’s venture capital firm Marcy Venture Partners LLC and growth-equity firm Avenir Growth Capital, according to Billboard.
The brand also landed an exclusive deal with Amazon Prime Video that will allow participating members to access at-home streaming of the show starting Sept. 20.
The rest of the collection included 50 looks comprised of lacy, fishnet or satin bralettes and undergarments. Other notable pieces included an assortment of body suits and pajamas. The sultry looks were juxtaposed with the interactive showcase’s lush tropical and arid desert backdrops.
Each model walked through the moving biomes in a choreographed sequence that emulated dance and animal-inspired movements. Some wore ensembles in neon, animal print, nude and jewel tones.
“When you hear the word savage, it’s pretty self-explanatory,” Rihanna explained. “It’s a confident word. It’s a word that is fearless, and I feel like the women here tonight represented that word, savage, and I feel every woman has a savage inside of them, whether they found it or not. It’s there.”
