LVMH stands for Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, a French conglomerate specializing in luxury goods including such brands as Christian Dior, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Tiffany & Co., TAG Heuer and Bulgari.

Why Did Rihanna Launch Savage X Fenty?

Her brand was one of the first to have all-inclusive sizes and models for sexy lingerie. “We want to make people look good and feel good,” Rihanna explained in the “about us” section on the company’s website.

She “approaches Savage X Fenty with the same mentality she does all her projects — to make something new and fresh that everyone can relate to and feel confident in,” the mission statement continued. “We want you to feel sexy and have fun doing it,” the Fenty Beauty founder added. The company’s products include everyday essentials including bras, underwear and loungewear to more “provocative pieces” that have included crotchless pajama bottoms and other racy items.

The company branched out to include a sportswear line including workout and athleisurewear in November 2022.
