Rihanna x Hard Rock? Yes!
The pop star and the Hard Rock are teaming up for limited-edition merchandise and RiRi donated personal items to their stash of music memorabilia and ephemera.
As part of the partnership, a shirt featuring an original design and artwork will be a part of Hard Rock's Artist Spotlight Series.
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.
While Rihanna is not a rocker, she is still pretty awesome and we love her style, and we rock, so it's cool. Don't be purists and elitists. Remember – LOVE ALL, SERVE ALL!
"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."
The Clara Lionel Foundation and the organization support efforts to improve health care in Barbados and support non-profit organizations that address the needs of youth globally in the areas of health, education, arts and culture.
Rihanna delivered items from her personal closet to Hard Rock. 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.
All snazzy stuff! Fans of Rihanna and fashion will be stoked to see 'em.
Hard Rock's Rihanna Artist Spotlight shirts are now available online at www.hardrock.com and at select Hard Rock Cafe locations. The limited-edition black, unisex shirt features a sexy black and white photo of Rihanna and her signature inside of a skull with an American flag pattern as the background. The back of the shirt will bear her signature and the Rihanna "R" along with the Hard Rock Cafe logo and city drop. The short-sleeve, black shirt was designed exclusively for Rihanna and Hard Rock by Kiyondra Talley and is available in sizes S-XL ($26 USD).
Ooh, we want one!
