Rihanna has debuted her second collection for Fenty, in which she pays tribute to immigrants, like herself. The singer and designer has included a T-shirt in the collection, which has the origin and definition of the word ‘immigrant’ on it.
The designer told The Cut that it was “a favourite” of the collection – and explained why she thinks it is such a positive word.
“For me, it’s a prideful word,” she said. “To know that you can come from humble beginnings and just take over whatever you want to, dominate at whatever you put your mind to. The world becomes your oyster, and there’s no limit.”

She went on to say that the world tends to forget that people like her come from this background.
“Wherever I go, except for Barbados, I’m an immigrant. I think people forget that a lot of times. I think they see Rihanna the brand. But I think it’s important for people to remember, if you love me, everyone out here is just like me. A million Rihannas out there, getting treated like dirt.”
The collection is entitled 6-19, which is inspired by the date of the launch. Joining the powerful slogan T-shirt is a collection that feels a little more low-key and casual than the first, which was defined by tailoring.
