Once again reminding the world that there are more ways than one to style lingerie, Rihanna’s size-inclusive intimates label Savage X Fenty has recruited an unexpected crew to front its August campaign: Black female motorcyclists.
The Caramel Curves are an all-Black, women-only biker gang from New Orleans consisting of mothers, community leaders, and small business owners who meet on Sundays to engage in the male-dominated sport. Before this campaign, they had already amassed an admirable following thanks in part to their flashy style, Vogue shares.
Savage X Fenty’s 100-plus-piece range of body-hugging new garments—with fishnet tights, biker gloves, and embroidered bras—isn’t uncharacteristic for this badass gang, who has been tasked to cruise down streets on two-wheelers in the latest Savage X Fenty shoot. Participating in the campaign are cofounders Nakosha “Coco” Smith and Shanika “Tru” Beatty, president Andrea “Hoodpriss” Shepherd, as well as members Tierra “Choosy” Thomas, Kimberly “Karma” Gilbert, and Dezel “First Lady Fox” Hayness.
“The Caramel Curves show the world what being a badass boss is all about, while bringing sexiness along for the ride,” describes Rihanna in a press release, according to Refinery29. Apparently, the singer is a lover of motorcycles herself.
