X Fenty Show breaks new groundles with new catwalk concept
success does not come from a simple desire for excellence. Sometimes, success
is limited by the action of reacting, disturbing and hindering the thought of
what has already been established. On this occasion, the celebration of
diversity has far surpassed the best women’s lingerie runway show in the
fashion is not a sub-discipline of art thought only for a few is something that
is beginning to be revealed in recent times. Exclusivity, no longer economic,
but social, is a factor that vanishes in the 21st century, abolishing rules
that disturb somewhat conservative minds. Rihanna has perfectly understood that
in an image society it is necessary to convince through visual impact and she
does it with a new concept of fashion show that is completely groundbreaking
Fenty Show is not an exhibitionist catwalk for a new collection, or at least
not only that, either for its form, or for its purpose. It’s not about what,
it’s about how. It is not a question of product, but of skin, passion, spirit
and celebration. It is in Ancient Greece where the canon of human beauty begins
to be established as a work of art, and it is Rihanna who speaks of the body
without distinction as a piece of art.
gathers very different backgrounds, definitions of what is sexy opposed and yet
found, fuses inclusiveness, diversity and art in a single concept; it uses
fashion as a defense mechanism and fights with the sole aim of extolling predefined
as different. Bodies, features and characteristics that are not usual to see
rises on a catwalk, or at least not at present united in this way.
begins with a sunset that illuminates the entire stage and even leaves in
darkness a landscape that completely immerses us in a painting by De Chirico.
All this accompanied by the electronic sound of Voices by Flume and Woo by
Rihanna ft. Travis Scott, and strategically opposed to Mass in B Minor (BWV
232) by Johann Sebastian Bach. And in this way, without knowing what will
happen, the public is imprisoned in a sea of contrapositions that intertwine
delicately and intelligently.
exceptional and brilliant choreography by Parris Goebel and the opening of the
catwalk by Raisa Flowers, current guest in Rihanna’s shows, give a powerful
start to 35 minutes of energetic and strident show. The first act features a
collection full of black transparencies, a classic of what is credited as sexy,
and a glittering teardrop makeup that evokes the recent HBO series, Euphoria.
the reasons Savage X Fenty Show has been compared to another renowned show in
the competition is because of the live music of great artists, both veteran and
emerging. Big Sean with I don’t fuck with
you and Clique kicks off a
followed by artists in the reef. He is joined by Asap Ferg with Bezerk, Migos with Pure Water on a strategically thought-out water stage, and 21
Savage as extra.
geometric structure built for the occasion is subject to constant changes
thanks to light plays, which move the spectator from one stage to another in a
very subtle way. A construction with hollow windows becomes one of the main
decorations, where each of the dancers or models occupies a place in each
cavity. Led by Malokera of MC Lan, Skrillex and TroyBoi, and Deva of Ape Drums
and lingerie represent live the mythical Cell Block Tango of the musical
Chicago. A devastating shake of women who dance for empowerment and
and Halsey star in one of the most seductive moments of the performance, along
with other celebrities as acclaimed sisters Hadid, Joan Smalls, Cara
Delevingne, or Laverne Cox. Dj Khaled reserved for final and accompanied by Fat
Joe, Tierra Whalck and Fabolous closed the evening before a final
social activism as a great protagonist, the extolling of diversity and the
search for the singular make this runway show a great work to respect. Rihanna
unites everything that society has traditionally separated, all those people
who by some idyllic law could not live together in the same universe that does
not adapt to everyone equally. It separates large sizes, “standard”
sizes, LGTBI community, people with limb prostheses or disabilities, racial or
gender minorities, fusing them with music, dance, and fashion. Ultimately,
talking about the elevation of the concept of fashion show in the moment in
which fashion is understood as that beyond the simple product to touch social
criticism through factors of mise- en-scène,
interpretative and auditory. A magical world, almost unreal, surrounded by
fantasy lingerie that expresses, that speaks, that makes you feel in all its
Again, it’s not the what, but the how.
