It was back in July that we first heard rumblings of a collaboration between Rihanna and UK high street giants River Island, and now not only do we have a launch date (5th March) we also have news of a catwalk show during London Fashion Week!

Vogue UK reports that the invite-only show will take place on 16th February, the busy Saturday of LFW. Rihanna is quoted as saying "I have wanted to design my own collection for a long time and to present my collection for River Island alongside all of the other great design talent at LFW is a real privilege. I can't wait to see the reaction from my fans and the fashion press!"

From the preview pics, it looks like we can expect a grungy, 90s collection full of ripped leather, sweatshirt fabric and washed-out 'vintage' tees. So it should fit pretty well on the high street this season.

Even if you're not on the lucky list of show invitees, you can sign up to receive news about the range as it happens. And don't panic if you're not in the UK, the range will also be stocked in Opening Ceremony in the USA and Japan.
