Rihanna is officially a London girl. East London. Earlier this year she was spotted with a Sainsbury’s bag, and then told the New York Times she is officially residing in London Town. It’s closer to Paris, where the artist – no better word encapsulates all that she does – is probably travelling to a whole lot more since joining forces with LVMH for Fenty. So far, so good. The next drop, available today (!) is Release 8-19 and it’s set in Peckham. Liz Johnson Artur photographed five chosen Fenty models Nayara Oliveira, Yerim Ko, Nafisah Zia Zohra, Max and Katharina are out and about in South London, exploring the playgrounds, striding through train stations and looking real good channelling Fenty. This drop is all about the layers (the rest of the world is going towards winter – sigh) with slick pants that slight from the floor to show off the kind of sharp stiletto heels that Rih became famous for expertly walking on grates in New York City in. If you know, you know. It’s all big in the badass sunglasses and bold suit jackets, cinched by the double breasted buttons on the waist. This is our kind of London look.
