Hard Rock and Rihanna have partnered together releasing a line of limited-edition merchandise, as part of Hard Rock’s Artist Spotlight Series. As part of the collaboration, designer Kiyondra Talley has designed an exclusive limited edition black, unisex t-shirt featuring a striking black and white photo of Rihanna with her signature inside of a skull placed over an American flag pattern. The back of the shirt will bear her signature and the Rihanna “R” along with the Hard Rock Cafe logo and city drop. The tee is available in S-XL and retails for $26.
Hard Rock also announced that it was adding several of Rihanna’s personal items to Hard Rock’s expansive memorabilia collection. True to the brand’s “Love All – Serve All” motto, Hard Rock is celebrating the partnership with a donation to Rihanna’s charity, The Clara Lionel Foundation.
“This charity is very near and dear to my heart and I’m proud to announce Hard Rock’s donation of $200,000 to The Clara Lionel Foundation, as well as showcase my shirt and spotlight merchandise,” said Rihanna. “I’m honored to join some of the biggest names in music who have been celebrated with shirt designs as part of Hard Rock’s Spotlight Series.”
Rihanna delivered items from her personal closet to Hard Rock during an exclusive appearance at Hard Rock Cafe Paris. Among the new items added to Hard Rock’s permanent collection are a pink Swarovski crystal bodysuit, a custom floral dress and vinyl bodysuit worn during Rihanna’s 2010-2011 “Last Girl on Earth Tour”; the denim shirt and black shorts Rihanna wore for her 2011 V Festival performance; the chain print jumpsuit worn at the 2012 Kollen Festival and the red gown Rihanna wore during the “Diamonds World Tour” in 2013.
“We are honored to partner with Rihanna for Hard Rock’s acclaimed Artist Spotlight initiative,” said Keely Wade, Head of Philanthropy, Hard Rock International. “As a dynamic singer and an international icon, Rihanna is a star in the truest sense. She will forever be a part of music history and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Rihanna and support of The Clara Lionel Foundation. We are also extremely excited to showcase items from Rihanna’s coveted wardrobe in various Hard Rock locations and we thank her for agreeing to add them to our memorabilia collection.
