Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty wows us once more with a collaboration with Swiss and Uruguayan multi-medium artist Manuela Soto Sosa, owner of tattoo studio SOFTFLEX located in Downtown Los Angeles. Celebrating Soto Sosa’s equal parts badass and sweet tattoo aesthetic, the collaboration comprises a sheer full-length bodysuit, halter bra, panties and thigh-high hosiery adorned with her artwork.
Commenting on the process of adapting her designs to lingerie in an exchange with Paper, Soto Sosa commented, “It was actually a happy medium between designing streetwear for Soto Worldwide and my work as a tattoo artist, I had to use technical knowledge from both sides and merge it together.
“Creating tattoo compositions that accentuate and embellish the right curves on the body and then all the technical aspects of designing to print on fabric, grading and pattern making; it was an incredible experience. I’ve learned so much working with Savage X Fenty.”
Savage X Fenty and Soto Sosa’s collaboration launches on savagex.com on November 1st, 2021.
