There’s no secret that Rihanna knows a thing or two about the world of fashion. Following on from her Fenty X Puma show at Paris Fashion Week, which blew the crowds of stylish revellers away to her shoe collection with Manolo Blahnik and sunglasses range with Dior, it comes as no surprise that the singer is turning her sights to haute jewellery designer as well. Teaming up with Swiss watch and jewellery brand Chopard, the limited edition collection featuring 2,000 pieces of each of the nine designs is titled Rihanna Loves Chopard.
The collection which is currently available for pre-order online and will arrive at Chopard boutiques across the globe in June is set to have its formal reveal at the Cannes Film Festival in May where Rihanna will be attending following her role in Luc Besson’s Valerian the City of a Thousand Planets. "I have always been in love with Chopard’s exquisite jewellery, so to actually design collections with them is something I still can't believe. It was a really incredible process and I learned so much! I can't wait for everyone to see it” explained Rihanna in a release from the brand.
