We've been wondering how long it would take for Rihanna to design her own fashion line, and it's just been revealed that she'll be launching a capsule collection for Spring 2013 with British high street store River Island.

As far as we're concerned, this is the perfect partnership. River Island has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years, offering affordable takes on catwalk trends and never shying away from difficult or edgy looks. Known for its strong prints, heavy embellishment and amazing accessories, the brand is a brilliant match for fearless fashion fan Rihanna.

Rihanna says of the collection, "I've been wanting to design my own collection for some time. River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family run business also really appealed to me. I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I'm looking forward to working with them and creating something really special."

Details are sparse at present, but we will no doubt get to see some preview images and sketches in the coming months. In the meantime, don't forget Rihanna will also be bringing her style to our TV screens with her fashion tv show 'Styled to Rock'.
