Rihanna Continues Industry Takeover with Her Own Fashion LineIn a welcome, if very late, turn of events the queen of all things music and fashion, Rihanna, has announced the launch of her own fashion line––an announcement that had the whole industry sigh a collective ‘Finally!’.
Grazia broke the story earlier this week saying that the 27-year-old singer, “is in the process of launching herself as a serious fashion designer - starting with an accessories line.” The line was patented on May 11 under the name, “$CHOOL KIlls”.
Though $CHOOL KIlls will start as an accessories line, the line will eventually expand to include clothing. Rihanna is already serving as Puma’s creative director, the face of Dior, and was named last year’s style icon by the CFDA, so it comes as no surprise that she would branch out on her own.
A source revealed to Grazia, “Rihanna has already had a successful clothing line with River Island and is not limiting herself to just music and touring for the rest of her life. She will continue to release singles and albums, but she's had plans in place to expand in other areas like fashion, for a good few years now.” No release date has been set for Rihanna’s debut as a designer, but fashionistas are already forming a line to get their manicured claws on this collection.
