Rihanna may be launching a line of children’s clothing in the near future. The news comes almost a year after the superstar gave birth to her first child with rapper A$AP Rocky. The beauty mogul is apparently looking to expand her influence into newborn and toddler essentials. According to reports, the superstar registered a trademark for a Fenty Kids clothing line on January 20. The trademark consists of baby clothes, swimwear, hats, leggings, socks, shoes, booties, bibs, caps, and cloth diapers, just to name a few.
Recall that in March 2021, Rihanna submitted a trademark application for Fenty Hair. The trademark covered a wide variety of items, including wigs, curlers, barrettes, clips, scrunchies, elastic bands for hair binding, hairbrushes, extensions, and combs. At this time, Rihanna has not confirmed if either brand will launch anytime soon. Although it is unclear whether the billionaire mogul intends to launch new brands at this time, filing for a trademark ensures that the name cannot be used by other businesses.
