Riccardo Tisci gave Rihanna a t-shirt with her face on it last week. And now we know why the Givenchy designer has been so generous to the singer. Today, WWD reports that Tisci designed the costumes Rihanna is wearing on her Diamonds World Tour. The tour kicked off this Friday in Bufffalo, New York and opened with the singer in a long ruffled bottom cape, which she ripped off to reveal a black menswear-inspired parka with gold embroidery and Swarovski Elements, a black-and-white leather bra, and matching black satin and silk mini-shorts.
Tisci wrote in a statement:
“I enjoyed making these looks: Rihanna represents what young and amazing means today. She is punk and talented. She offers intelligence, energy and pure beauty. Rihanna has what every girl aspires to have. She is the face of her generation.”
Rihanna also accessorized with a “RIRI” necklace made of shark teeth and couture Goggles by Givenchy.
