Rihanna has captured the "essence" of Armani perfectly with her second collection for the fashion house.
The "Rude Boy" hitmaker has teamed with Armani Jeans and Emporio Armani Underwear once again and the company are delighted with her designs. "Rihanna is a great artist. She has personality, charisma and energy, and has been a pleasure to work with. She captures the young and contemporary essence of Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans perfectly," Giorgio Armani said.
The latest collections from Rihanna - who has been the fact of both labels for the past two seasons - includes four t-shirts, three denim pieces, a boiler suit, shorts, shoes, a canvas bag in two sizes and a leather jacket for Armani Jeans, while there is also a selection of matching sets for Emporio Armani Underwear.
Rihanna has previously spoken of her desire to have her own fashion line, admitting she wants to be taken seriously as a designer rather than simply endorse a range of products: "I'm really pursuing a fashion line of my own. I want to design. "This is also a road that I want to earn it. So I'm working with designers. Designers that I respect, and [fashion] companies that I respect. I want people to really trust me before I just say 'Buy it, because it's mine.'"
