Rihanna's High Summer Collection for River Island is here
If you were a fan of the first hit of Rihanna's collaboration with high street fashionables River Island, we're pretty sure you're going to like this one too. Last week saw her high summer offering hit shelves at River Island stores nationwide as well as online. Starting from £15 right up to £100 the high summer collection is accessible to all.
Made up of really stylised items, all of which are dripping with RiRi's iconic look, the collection is really for those who love Rihanna's style and want to get it for themselves. The collection has two main prints, one a hippie style tie-dye and the other a pretty floral design on a black background, whilst block colours come in the form of red, black, white and grey, with denim playing a big part too. Shapes continue from her last collection with shirts tied around waists, thigh high splits and jersey tied in knots for a "I just chucked this on and it looks amazing" effect.
Rihanna said, "I made a piece for everybody in my crew - we all have different body types, different tastes, some are braver than others. I think like that because that's how women in the world are, we're all different, we all like different things."
She continued to say, "When we started doing this collection with River Island we decided we've got to get our hands dirty and see everything behind the scenes, start from scratch. I just wanted stuff that I'm going to wear because at the end of the day, that's what got me into designing. I'd see things on the rack which were great but they could be a little more me, or fit me a little better, or be a little longer, or be a little shorter. I needed to make clothes for fat days, I just wanted to make things that I want to wear. I was being selfish".
