Shortly after the clock struck midnight and February came to a quiet end, Rihanna hopped on Instagram to make an announcement: Spring is here, and the floral season is upon us. RiRi posted a new photo of herself posing in a two-piece lingerie set and matching robe from her Savage x Fenty line. "savage AF. don’t trip," she captioned the image. "New @savagexfenty out now – only on savagex.com. #SavageSpring 🌸" More than 4.3 million people liked her post.
Rihanna spoke to Vogue in September about her love of robes as quarantine wardrobe staples. “Robes are my new uniform,” she said with a laugh. “It’s comfortable, flexible, and easy. You can have thin ones, thick ones—why do anything else? You’re at home, no makeup, no weave. [I’m] chilling and doing what I have to do. Of course, I’ll put on clothes for a Zoom meeting every now and then.”
She also spoke to British Vogue in March 2020 about what her upcoming album will be like. “I don’t want my albums to feel like themes,” she said. “There are no rules. There’s no format. There’s just good music, and if I feel it, I’m putting it out.”
She added that there will be a reggae album, too: “Oh no, that is happening. I feel like I have no boundaries. I’ve done everything–I’ve done all the hits, I’ve tried every genre–now I’m just, I’m wide open. I can make anything that I want.”
