“Bentley tints on/ Fendi prints on” Nicki Minaj rapped in her buoyant single “Chun Li.” And with that, a fashion collaboration was born. For weeks now, the rapper's fans, known as the Barbz, have been awaiting the arrival of Minaj's Fendi Prints On, a 127-piece collection that marries the luxury label's playful yet sophisticated aesthetic with Minaj's signature whimsy. At long last, the collection is finally here.
Launching today, October 14, on fendi.com, the latest iteration of Fendi's FF Series features house staples like the Baguette, Peekaboo, and Kan U bag, and more in a range of textures—among them, space-like metallics, shearling and lots of pink Lycra. Minaj told ELLE Fendi Prints On is “for everyone who wants to show skin. We all go to the beach, we all get sexy, we all have sex, we all bust it open!”
There's something for all the Barbz from body-skimming silhouettes and 90s-inspired jewelry (door knocker earrings, anyone?) to oversized jackets and tracksuits for men.
The highlight of the collection is easily the long-sleeve neon pink midi bodycon dress, which Minaj wears in the campaign images and designed for women curvy features.
“I want to make clothes that make girls with my body look sexy,” she told ELLE. “What I want [to tell] girls is not necessarily, ‘Go and gain weight and have a big booty,’ but ‘If you do have curves, be proud of it, flaunt it—love the skin you’re in.”
