Two of the biggest female musicians have linked up.
Beyoncé and Rihanna have reportedly been named as investors in Destree, a French ready-to-wear and accessories brand that aims to not only double the size of its team but also “open its first freestanding stores and reach deeper into several markets,” Billboard reports.
In its Series A funding round, Destree is not only racking in the support (and dough) from Beyoncé and Rihanna. Familiar faces like Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon, Gisele Bündchen, and more, also participated along with Sequoia Capital China, who led the round, according to Crunchbase.
What Is Destree?
The company’s website reveals the brand is based in Paris, France, and was launched in 2016 by Géraldine Guyot and Laetitia Lumbroso.
“Destree tells the story of a colorful and singular passion, of a Parisian yet different style, drawing its beauty from the visual dissonances it evokes and which it translates through a graphic and structured aesthetic,” reads the site.
The brand offers pieces that are both essential and unique with a graphic charm that combines clean shapes and singularity. It is a tribute to contemporary art where colors come in perfect harmony to create materials that stand out among the rest.
