In addition to being the face of Armani Jeans and Giorgio Armani Intimates, pop-R&B sensation Rihanna can now add designer to her list of titles. The 23-year-old designed a small capsule collection for Emporio Armani including two T-shirts, two pairs of jeans, lingerie sets, a black leather motorcycle jacket, and a bucket-backpack in canvas with vegan leather trim.

Armani spokespeople are calling the collection “utterly perfect for personal interpretation,” and we have to agree that the collection is definitely less outlandishly Rihanna than we were expecting.

We’re obsessed with the man’s leather motorcycle jacket complete with tons of sexy zippers, and tailored in a super-feminine way. It’s a nice wearable interpretation of Rihanna new, hard edge on display in her new video “We Found Love” with model Calvin Harris.

The mini-collection will hit stores beginning in December starting with barely there lace sets in pearl grey and cobalt blue, and the jeans will be available in mid-January with the remaining pieces of the collection.
