Rihanna also launched an #iamsavage collection of bralette, thong and bikinis bottoms that also sit high on the waist and feature her brand's signature in a rose gold logo
New York: Rihanna unleashed her exotic world of bralettes, undies and pyjamas for women of all shapes, sizes and colours as the New York Fashion Week came to a close Wednesday. "My mission is to just have women all over the world feel comfortable and sexy and have fun with lingerie," the pop star, fashion maven and beauty mogul told AP backstage after the unique show that had her crowd cheering. "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," she added.
And, she practiced what she preached indeed. Her runway models included two pregnant women, supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid and many other ladies in all shades and shapes. "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."
There were new silhouettes when compared with her first highly successful season, cut high on the leg. Bralettes and underwear were done in mesh, fishnet and lace. Pyjamas were oversized to be worn for day or night. Bodysuits ranged from knitted to barely their string options that revealed all, pasties in place. At least sometimes. The singer also launched an #iamsavage collection of bralette, thong and bikinis bottoms that also sit high on the waist and feature her brand's signature in a rose gold logo.
For the holiday, Savage x Fenty will offer denim reworked into lingerie and sleepwear, including printed denim chiffon. When Rihanna talks of embracing all sizes since launching Savage x Fenty in May, she's not messing around. Sizes range from 32A to 40DDD in bras and XS to 3X in undies and sleepwear. Prices range from $12.50 to $115.
