Women’s Wear Daily reports that the multifaceted star is in talks with LVMH to build her own luxury line.
That would make it the first fashion brand industry titan Bernard Arnault has launched from scratch since Christian Lacroix in 1987.
LVMH has already handpicked a clutch of employees from within, including some from Louis Vuitton and Celine, to work on the project in tandem with Rihanna and some of her key associates, sources said.
This exciting news touches down following the success the performer enjoyed with Fenty Beauty and comes as her fans look forward to new music from her.
It is understood her collection with LVMH will span ready-to-wear, leather goods and accessories, and could be released in tandem with her ninth album, expected out sometime later this year, one source said.
