Rihanna in DKNY x Opening Ceremony and an original tour costume jacket.
It makes perfect sense that, on the eve of her River Island Collection becoming available for the thirsty American masses, Rihanna would wear a look comprised entirely of her own designs as well as those of her exclusive retailer, Opening Ceremony. We knew that we recognized that jumpsuit immediately as the Spring ’91 Sweat Jumpsuit ($315.00) from DKNY’s collaboration with OC, and we also thought there was something awfully familiar about that racing jacket. While the fact that it’s decorated with the phrase “Rude Boy,” a reference, of course, to Rihanna’s 2010 single off of Rated R, but more than that, it’s something of a catchphrase for the singer. While the over sized cut and color scheme didn’t immediately scream original piece, we still had this feeling. And then we remembered it (eureka!): the jacket was heavily featured in the b-roll for Rihanna’s Diamonds World Tour Wardrobe First Look video, which you can watch below!
While you’re not going to score Rihanna’s original (and we’re assuming, close to one-of-a-kind) tour wardrobe, you can get her jumpsuit from Opening Ceremony retail locations and online, and of course you can also, if you wait until tomorrow at least, score some Rihanna-designed River Island duds while you’re at it.
