In the know. 

In news you never knew you needed, but now can’t live without, Rihanna is reportedly launching her own luxury fashion house with LVMH. According to WWD, a number of sources have confirmed the rumours. The publication is also reporting that LVMH has already cherry-picked multiple employees from Louis Vuitton and Celine to join the new label. It should come as no surprise that the singer, actress and business mogul has her sights set on her next big step, given that just this week she was spotted wearing a pair of never-before-seen Fenty-branded sunglasses. Can we expect Fenty accessories to launch alongside her first collection? Only time will tell. [WWD]

Said pop-up store will be open to the public from January 17, until January 29, and will also feature Off-White’s latest collection of bags and shoes. We have no doubt Abloh’s designs will sell out fast, so you'd better get in quick. [WWD]
