Rihanna and LVMH jointly decided to stop the release of the clothing collection in Europe in anticipation of better conditions for this”- a representative of the conglomerate told WWD, who noted that Fenty clothing and accessories were not very popular with customers and did not bring the expected income.The economic situation worsened during the lockdown which showed that Rihanna can not fully control production in several European countries and considered plans to release eight collections a year unrealistic. 

Despite this LVMH will direct his effors to Rihanna`s other projects: beauty brands “Fenty Beauty” and “Fenty Skin”, and also underwear brand Savage x Fenty.
