SHE x Ronny Kobo
Rihanna wears pieces from designer Ronny Kobo throughout the years:
Rihanna never forgets the designer brands she loves. Throughout the years we’ve seen her consistently sport some of the same designers in her everyday wear as well as in her performance attire. One of which we will be discussing in this week’s installment of Vintage RiRi. We previously discussed the Aussie brand Rihanna loves, We Are Handsome (here). You can visit that post to catch up on all of the pieces she’s worn from them. Now, we will take a look at another brand: Torn by Ronny Kobo.
TORN BY RONNY KOBO focuses on the creation of figure flattering, statement pieces that are current, tasteful and fun. Ronny has been hailed as the go-to designer for statement-making dresses, but her reach expands deep into a woman’s wardrobe.
Rihanna was first photographed in a piece from Torn by Ronny Kobo while on the beach with Katy Perry in Barbados. On April 21st, 2009 Rihanna wore Ronnie Kobo’s Studded Dress.
Three months later, in July, Rihanna was seen grabbing a bite to eat at Cipriani Restaurant in New York. On this occasion she wore a Jayne Long Sleeve Tee from Torn by Ronny Kobo. This jersey top features a crew neck and shoulder pads with long sleeves and seam detailing at the sides and on the back. Rihanna then wore a 4-Band Striped Skirt by Pleasure Doing Business and her Miu Miu Peep Toe Lace Up Boots. She also accessorized with Spring 2010 Lanvin Pilot Sunglasses.
Rihanna jetted out to Sydney, Australia and was spotted at one of their airports on February 13th, 2010. She wore a green sweatshirt from Torn by Ronny Kobo. This top again featured the padded shoulders that were key in the look we discussed previously. She coupled this look with a leather beret and a stylish Large Chanel Coco Cocoon Bag. That very same year, during the month of September, Rihanna was spotted in Hawaii wearing a grey ensemble from Torn by Ronny Kobo along with Ray Ban Sunglasses and a Vintage Burgundy Leather Chanel Backpack.
Rihanna wore several maxi dresses during the year of 2011. Of course, our highlighted designer, Ronny Kobo was in the mix as well. On the 21st of July, Rihanna stepped out in New York City wearing Torn by Ronny Kobo’s Sharon Maxi Dress. This jersey dress features moldable boning at its deep V neck with cutouts and ruching at the sides. Her dress also features draping at the front and back with contrasting rope straps that cross at the back. Rihanna accessorized this dress with beautifully designed Christian Louboutin Miniraja Flats and her staple Ray Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses. She also carried along a Fendi Mia Messenger Bag and a Denim Prada Logo Top Handle Handbag.
Less than a month later, Rihanna was spotted in Torn by Ronny Kobo yet again! She attended a LOUD Tour after party in Bridgetown, Barbados wearing Ronny’s African Stripes Allison Cut-Out Long Sleeve Dress. She complimented her dress with Christian Louboutin pointed toe pumps.
Rihanna’s most memorable appearance in Torn by Ronny Kobo is when she attended a Lakers vs Grizzles basketball game at the Staples Center in LA on January 8th, 2012. She wore Ronny’s Torn American Flag Boyfriend Tee. This short sleeved crew-neck jersey tee features an American flag graphic with stains and tiny holes throughout. Rihanna carried along a Fendi Zucca Baguette Clutch and wore Christian Louboutin Metallic and Patent Leather 120mm Pumps.
