Good girl gone … designer? Rihanna is parlaying her gig as the face of Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans into an even bigger job, creating a capsule collection for the brand. The singer designed jeans, T-shirts, accessories and more that will appear in select Macy’s and Bloomingdales locations and on Armani.com in mid-December.
Her Armani Jeans collection includes two T-shirts, two pairs of jeans (one skinny, one boyfriend, her fave), a black leather jacket, a bandana belt and a leather-trimmed canvas backpack. The singer’s “R” logo covers one T-shirt; an outline of her face is prominently featured on the other.
The Emporio Armani Underwear is slightly more Rated R, though; the lace bra-and-panty sets come in cobalt blue and pearl gray and the words “Rihanna for Emporio Armani” are written on the straps. Tell us: Would you buy clothing or underwear designed by Rihanna?
